Welcome to The Vine Shed Venue & Cellar Door

The idea of creating a Venue & Cellar Door after 3 generations of supplying fruit and wines to other local wineries was an exciting step forward for us as a family.
This magnificent Venue & Cellar Door with its rustic charm is located in the town of beautiful McLaren Vale South Australia, 40 minutes’ drive from Adelaide and set amongst the Conte Estate Circa 1880 Shiraz vineyard. This extraordinary vineyard alone has a story to tell, planted over 130 years ago and still producing exceptional fruit, creating extraordinary wine.

Your Adventure begins here….

The Venue available for hire offers a truly memorable experience.

Our Team


Owner Steve Conte contributes to the winemaking but mostly on an advisory level. Aged in his 70`s he keeps his son winemaker Danial in touch with the traditional Italian methods, resulting in wines that have a 'blend' of both old and new world wine making influences. He will also be part of maintaining the Venues Vegetable and Herb Garden ready to use in the share platters.
