Our wedding anniversary weekend at Beresford Estate

Six years… where does the time go?!

It seems like only yesterday we exchanged vows and became husband and wife.

Each year on our anniversary, we forgo gifts and instead we choose to spend quality time together. (It’s my main love language… anyone else?)

This year, we decided to stay overnight somewhere we’ve never stayed before, and so we chose…

Beresford Estate in McLaren Vale, South Australia.

To say that this place is stunning would be an understatement.

Every single little detail has been considered and catered for. I’m talking a fully equipped kitchen with food, drinks, appliances – the works. A massive TV and a bluetooth speaker. Plenty of pillows for the bed – and extra in the wardrobe, just in case. GHD hair dryer and straightener. Gorgeous, natural body products. Fluffy bathrobes. An iron and ironing board. Storage galore. And the most exquisite WALK-IN-WARDROBE-ROOM that I have ever seen!

You can safely say my heart was won over as soon as I step foot in there!

Beresford Estate is nestled in the heart of the Beresford vineyards in McLaren Flat and is tucked away across the creek, behind their architecturally built Beresford Wines Tasting Pavilion.

Naturally, we popped across for a wine tasting… as if we’d miss that opportunity!

Chris did the Icons Tasting Experience while I opted for the Classic Tasting Experience because I just love my bubbles, chardonnay and rose. Each wine was paired with a small tasting plate of regional flavours. Incredible!

After that, it was back to our beautiful Reserve Suite to chill out and get ready for dinner at Salopian Inn.

We rolled back to the suite with very full bellies and had the most blissful night’s sleep.

There’s just something about falling asleep in the middle of a vineyard with no one around you that is oh-so-conducive to catching major ZZZs!

Would we go back? Absolutely!

Would I recommend it to anyone? For sure! Especially if it’s a special occasion.

The accommodation at Beresford Estate is separated by the Gallery Room (function centre) in the middle with two styles of accommodation – the Reserve Suite, which is perfect for couples (and is where we stayed) and the Grenache Villa, which has 3 bedrooms.

The Beresford team went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing stay and one of the best wedding anniversaries ever!
