Lloyd Brothers Wine & Olive Company McLaren Vale
The front sign says it all WELCOME and that is exactly how this winery makes families feel when you walk through the door. A fab spot for a lazy afternoon. What we love about this winery is the simplicity. The little things are often the things we want and remember the most.
Lloyd Brothers loves families and this was evident when we visited. They have a gorgeous little kids corner located inside. Whilst small it has a little table and chairs, books, colouring in, blocks and a few toys and games for the kids to play with. The grassed area outside is huge and features a gorgeous lake with ducks so a lovely spot for the kids to run free. This is the area they use for there family friendly days. They even have a few picnic rugs you can use to keep you warm on cooler days. We loved this little warm touch and we assume you could use as a picnic rug outside on the nice days. In the restaurant pavilion they even have a few bean bags the kids can use to sit together. A clever idea as allows a little adult time. You will also find high chairs and a change table. We love how they have the families all covered.
The food is simple but divine. They offer a variety of regional platters that feature a mix of estate and local produce. Think cheeses, olives, tapenade, pate and you are on the right track. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. On selected weekends they also offer wood over pizza also using the local produce they are just amazing.
We loved the fail safe kids box with toasted sandwich, popcorn and juice. The simple things in life are often the best! (especially when it comes to kids meals)
Keep your eyes out for the family friendly events held at Lloyd Brothers especially during Sea + Vines. WE have heard on the grape vine there are a few coming soon .They sure know how to throw a family friendly day out! We certainly enjoy them and cant wait for the next one.
