Currant Shed Restaurant
The Currant Shed restaurant holds a maximum of 70 for sit-down weddings and functions. In the warmer months, the area can be opened out onto the patio , which overlooks our lime grove, for 80 seated.
The Currant Shed Restaurant boasts exceptional views of the vineyards on one side, and our stunning lime grove on the other.
Original timber framework with drying rack holes are a distinguishing feature of the restaurant’s architecture and the dark polished floor complement locally made American Oak furniture giving the interior a sleek, Scandinavian vibe. Slender, modern cutlery, butter knives made from old barrel staves by our chef and water glasses made in-house from up-cycled wine bottles complete the aesthetic.
Private Dining Room (PDR)
The PDR holds a maximum of 20 for sit-down functions, such as corporate meetings with a difference, or Christmas lunches.
The PDR also boasts exceptional views of the vineyards and the Courtyard which can be used for pre-drinks on request. With beautiful natural light, Audio Visual facilities and the same exceptional service a the restaurant, the PDR is perfect for corporate meetings or large lunch gatherings.
The Courtyard holds a maximum of 30 for sit-down functions, and 50 for a cocktail-style event. Positioned adjacent to the Currant Shed Restaurant, this area can be added to the restaurant if numbers exceed 70 for sit-down events (100 pax).
Like the Restaurant, the Courtyard boasts exceptional views at every turn. The beautiful canopy of vines overhead add to the quintessential McLaren Vale vibe.
Shottesbrooke Cellar Door
The Cellar Door holds a maximum of 63 for an indoor, cocktail-style event, and 202 in the Cellar Door Courtyard.
The Shottesbrooke Cellar Door is only a short walk from the Currant Shed, and can serve as a second destination following your event at the Currant Shed.
Again, guests can enjoy scenic views of the vineyard landscape from this location.
The Pickers Hutt
The Picker's Hutt picnic area can comfortably accommodate 10 people, and is only $150 to hire for a private picnic! $50 is redeemable on wine from the Shottesbrooke Cellar Door.
Pre-book a Gourmet BBQ pack prepared exclusively by our chefs at The Currant Shed. Gourmet BBQ packs include meat, vegetable skewers, sausages, (all prepped to be cooked), three seasonal salads (prepared and ready to eat), condiments, bio-pak plates and cutlery.
Set among the vines and away from the Cellar Door (but close enough to use the facilities), the Picker's Hutt is a picturesque, private location equipped with a BBQ, gas, fireplace, table and bench seats. The blinds can be pulled down on cool or windy days.
