Experience Wine Tastings and Tours at Cupitt’s Estate Award Winning Winery

Rosie and Griff Cupitt along with help from their children planted the first grapes on Washburton Farm in Milton in 2005. Rosie saw potential on the South Coast with an interesting mix of soils and climate with the proximity to the coast adding a unique advantage in keeping cool during the growing season. With a degree in Oeneology from Charles Sturt and extensive vintage experience in France, Rosie began making wines with a more old world feel. She has now passed on the winemaking to sons Wally and Tom, both of whom have themselves had experience making wine in France and Australia and continue the focus on making wines of intensity and purity.

Cellar Door

Housed inside a historic stone creamery, which dates back to 1851, the Cupitt’s Cellar Door is open for wine tastings everyday from 10am to 5pm (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and some public holidays). The Cellar Door is located adjacent to the restaurant.

Our Cellar Door experience is focused on offering visitors an intimate, informative tasting of the wines throughout our portfolio. With an evolving flight of wines, there is always something new to sample.

Standard tastings are charged at $5 per person (complementary to Cupitt VIP Club members) which is redeemable on any full bottle purchase.

Wine Awards

James Halliday – Dark Horse and 5 Star Rating Awarded 2018 and 2019

“Cupitt’s Winery has been knocking on the door of a five-star rating for a number of years and blew it wide open for this edition of the Wine Companion. The tourist mecca of the southern NSW coast around Ulladulla is both blessing and bane. It’s not a natural region for high-quality grapes, nor a magnet for wine tourists. The Cupitt family, led by winemaker Rosie, has walked around the problem by buying grapes from regions as far as the Yarra Valley. The result is that the quality of the wines and the modesty of the prices is as commendable as it is unusual.”
