The Shoalhaven is fortunate to have many amazing wineries right here - and their wines are not to be missed. So, here are the Holiday Haven best wines picks while holidaying in the Shoalhaven.

2014 Petite Rouge 'The Kim'

‘This is a lovely style of Rose made from Chambourcin, taken off skins after 24 hours and then finished off. Subtle hints of Turkish delight, musk and raspberry tones.  A refreshing summers evening tipple, fabulous match for an antipasto platter.’

Phone (02) 4446 0170

2014 Shiraz

‘An outstanding Barossa vintage. A dark garnet colour with a fragrant aroma of black cherries and full ripe plums, with a touch of savoury spice. A fruit driven palate balanced by smooth and supple tannins.  The velvety palate culminates in a lengthy finish marked by oak nuances.’

2017 Cats Meow Rose

‘A big call – our best Rose in 11 years. A bigger call – it’s in the Top 10 Rose’s we have ever had – anywhere. A fresh, vibrant co-ferment (this is when red and white grapes are mixed together and fermented together – usually rose is made from straight red grapes or, believe it or not, blending finished red and white wine together) we think it’s quite something. It’s very complex with hints of a variety of summer fruit, but still light and crisp. For the record, it’s our fastest selling wine in 11 years…’
