Tilbrook Estate is an Adelaide Hills venue with arguably the most captivating story. James Tilbrook always had a dream to create a place that was an ‘eco haven’ with sweeping Hills views. It is a perfect venue for weddings, special celebrations or corporate functions.
As a result of the heartbreaking destruction of their Lenswood vineyard during the 2019 Cudlee Creek bushfire, the Tilbrook family have literally put their hearts and souls into re-planting and re-building this beautiful hills property. Like a phoenix from the ashes, Tilbrook Estate has risen to become something iconic and breathtaking. But not without a little help from their friends and the local hills community!
The cellar door has been an epic collaboration with one central idea – to create a sustainably built space that can be enjoyed with zero net carbon emissions. Partially sunk into the hillside it has natural thermal properties, was built using green star concrete for the slab, marine ply walls and recycled galvanised iron cladding and is powered by solar panels. It also features the ultimate up cycle – recycled concrete blocks used as retaining walls that are a super cool feature of both the outdoor and indoor (they are cleverly lit-up from the inside by coloured LED strip lights)!
The space inside is a modern interpretation of a traditional Adelaide Hills barn, and has a welcoming Scandi feel with its timber walls and beams. With a wood fire indoors and large outdoor fire pit, Tilbrook Estate is a space that can be utilised any time of year. The cellar door opens up to a level lawned area, ideal for a small marquee or open-air dining. Picture a boho picnic or long table reception here, taking in the stunning views of the valley beyond.
The selection of wines currently on offer at Tilbrook Estate have been provided by other vineyards during the recovery and have been fittingly labelled Hope! As of 2023, there is now Shiraz, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and a Sauv Blanc are under the Estate label. These very special wines are a return finally back to wines from grapes grown and or made at Tilbrook Estate. Wine packages are provided by Tilbrook Estate and we provide locally made beers and ciders.
The kitchen provides exclusive in-house catering by internationally awarded Northern Italian master pizza chef, Enrico Sgarbossa. Enrico and his Japanese wife Akiha did a tree change to The Adelaide Hills from his award winning Sydney Surrey Hills restaurant Al Taglio in 2021 and has been at the helm since January 2023.
Located just 4 minutes from popular hills destination Lobethal and under 45 minutes from Adelaide, Tilbrook Estate offers the most beautiful environmentally friendly backdrop for your special event.
Tilbrook Estate is an eco lovers paradise and ideal setting for a relaxed country celebration. Once you see this place in person you’ll be amazed by what they have achieved, and we can guarantee you won’t forget it.
