Their mixed farming property of 88 acres, studded with old gums, comprises 30 acres under vine (Riesling, Shiraz, Pinot & Cabernet); 15 acres native eucalypt plantation; 1 acre Muntree shrubs; & the remainder grazing.
Guests are free to roam the property at their leisure!
Edenmae's Two Room (ONE BEDROOM) Rustic Cottage comfortably accommodates a family of 4/5 & is fully self-catered for up to 8 (with 500 litre refrigerator, 700 wide stove & every other convenience required of a busy kitchen). There is a well equipped private verandah outback, overlooking the house dam.
While the cottage kitchen is very well equipped (including a BBQ out back), folks often prefer to eat out. Seven minutes in either direction will find three great pubs for meals, one restaurant, two general stores, a butcher & a baker.
They have several small cellar doors within arms reach (4 to 7 minutes): Edenmae Estate on the main street of Springton; Peter Seppelt Grand Cru are on the main road to Springton. Suffield Wines is a mere 1km west of Springton town & Poverty Hill across from Edenmae's Cellar Door in Springton.
Within 20 minutes you will find multiple places of interest: the Barossa Valley; Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park; the Whispering Wall; the Big Rocking Horse; the National Motor Museum; the Barossa Cheese Factory; and the Herbig Tree.
Within 30 minutes you could find yourself sitting on the grassy banks of the Murray River in Mannum. Or in the opposite direction, on the lake of Maggie Beer's Farm Shop, in between a few stops at some of the best wineries Australia has to offer!
"The Barossa" is divided into two valleys... The warm climate Barossa Valley & the cool climate Eden Valley. Eden Valley is then gifted with it's sub region High Eden.
With Edenmae Estate sitting atop the southern crest of the Eden Valley, it is very fortunate to be located exactly half way between the Barossa Valley & the Adelaide Hills - making it a short 20 minute drive to either destination - and a one hour drive to Adelaide's CBD.
The Estate sits at 455m above sea level, making it quite elevated for South Australia. Hence their winters are rather chilly & summer evenings bring relief from hot dry days.
They are typically considered Mediterranean with Summer temperatures varying between 10°c to 45°c & Winter temperatures from -2°c to 25°c. So it's a good idea to pack jumpers/pullovers irrespective of the season!
Eden Valley is renowned for it's zesty Rieslings & with the Barossa's Shiraz just North & the Adelaide Hills Sauvignon just South - what more could you want??
