"Glen Ewin is a fantastic venue - we have had so many people comment to us on how beautiful it looked, the service, the staff, the food - all the feedback has been glowing!"
So many people commented on how superb the food was, and even the toughest critics were absolutely raving about it.
Thank you so much for making such an effort helping us organise our wedding it was one of the best nights of our lives.
Best of all, 98% of my guests had no idea such a beautiful venue existed in Adelaide. We had a wonderful day and will have a lifetime of fond memories.
Our wedding was an unqualified success and one of the key factors in making it so was Glen Ewin and its people.
What a beautiful setting and excellent service.
Glen Ewin is such a unique environment and we have had many friends and family comment that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Venue History: Glen Ewin was one of the earliest vineyards in South Australia with the first vines Frontignac, Black Hambro' and Roussillon planted about 1845. However, in 1891 wine making ceased due to George McEwin's religious concerns regarding the morality of the enterprise and, thereafter, effort was concentrated on the product for which the property became best known - Glen Ewin Jams.
Glen Ewin is now the home of the Wauchope family who have undertaken the daunting task of restoring not only the gracious homestead but also the large array of factory and outbuildings.
In the process of the Wauchopes rebuilding Glen Ewin it has once again become a hive of activity. The factory buildings are now used for climate-controlled wine storage (since 1992) and general storage, receptions, weddings, product launches and community events.
Glen Ewin Estate was voted the best function centre in South Australia in 2008 at which point we opted out of the voting for 2009 whilst we concentrated on the development of The Gatehouse facility which added to the prestige of Glen Ewin Estate.
The Gatehouse was completed in December 2009 on the site of the old coach house and stables at the property's entrance. The Gatehouse is modelled along the lines of the original building with stone, timber and tin being extensively used to ensure the heritage feel of the property is maintained.
It is not known exactly when the original Coach House/stable was built at the entrance to Glen Ewin, but suffice to say it was standing for well over 100 years. It had a cobbled floor and was constructed with jarrah columns with oregon used elsewhere in the construction and clad with corrugated iron imported from England.
The Gatehouse adds a second function venue to the Estate and a dedicated function room. It is also the home of The Hills Boutique Wine Centre' and has a wonderful Cellar Door which is host to 14 boutique Adelaide Hills wineries.
