Ekhidna has an amazing view of their vineyard and has a beautiful cellar door and restaurant we used for our wedding. They also printed us menus, welcome sign and seating chart which was a bonus!

The best venue in Adelaide!! A beautiful ceremony location with the hills and vineyards as the backdrop, an amazing adaptable reception area, and the most delicious food, wine and beer in all of McLaren Vale! All the staff are friendly and fun, and Erin the coordinator made everything run smooth. The packages they offer include so much that they made a lot of preparation so easy.

We loved Ekhidna! We loved to choose a smaller more family owned vibe for a location. Phemie was everything you want in a cordinator: steady and calm always, friendly and approachable, reliable and also a decision maker- we were a little wishy washy with what we wanted sometimes and she was so great with suggestions around what has worked well in the past. We had some intial issues with our original cordinator leaving and when we talked through our concerns Phemie was professional accountable and empathetic. Ekhidna is stunning and our friends and family LOVED that food and wine and said that there was plenty of it!! We did a sit down/share plates style FYI- we loved spending time there leading up to wedding and can't wait to go back again and again and relive!
