d'Arenberg Distilled

Two of McLaren Vale’s most iconic venues have combined for a day filled with wine, food, art and gin! Recently, historic wine producer d’Arenberg purchased award-winning craft distillery Settlers Spirits. You’ll get a taste of both unique locations with this curated experience.

Your day begins at the d’Arenberg Cube with ‘The Dead Arm Distinction’ - a curated wine tasting including the current release and three amazing back vintage examples of our highly awarded flagship wine. Next, make your way down to the spectacular Eat@Polly’s. Comfortably seated in distinctive high-backed chair among an eclectic collection of art and curiosities, you will enjoy a casual two-course lunch from the team behind d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant.

From here your day takes a surreal turn as you explore original bronze sculptures and graphic artworks from surrealist master Salvador Dalí. Historically displayed in the great cities of the world, this multi-million dollar exhibition is on loan from the Dalí Universe in Switzerland. At your leisure discover the Alternate Realties Museum on the ground floor where a self-guided exploration will take you through a space filled with wall to wall art installations designed to excite and awaken your senses.

Lastly, take a short trip to our sister venue, and award winning distillery Settlers Spirits where you will learn how individually steeped botanicals and precision blending contribute to the freshness and purity of artisan gins. Sit down to a personally curated gin flight accompanied with a locally sourced artisan cheese plate.
