The only South Australian winery that sprawls around a giant cube.

Being known for making great wines is all well and good, and it's something that the d'Arenberg winery and the Osborn family behind it have been able to claim for over a century. Being known for making great wines and having a giant cube soaring about the vines? That's a newer claim to fame, but d'Arenberg ticks that box as well.

The five-storey cube is quite the centrepiece, understandably. But, consider it a bonus — because these organic, biodynamic tipples earn plenty of attention on their own. When it comes to whites, d'Arenberg likes expressive drops with delicate bouquets. When it comes to reds, it goes big, fruity and fragrant.

And, if you're keen to check out the cube, it looks like a partially twisted Rubik's Cube, and comes with an art gallery, wine inhalation room, virtual fermenter, blending bench, video room and smartphone app-linked functionality that's been dubbed an "alternate reality wine museum". And a cellar door, a restaurant and fantastic panoramic views as well.
