This is the stuff of fantasy - a sparkling, architectural dreamscape, surrounded on all sides by flourishing vineyards. When you check in down the road, you can pick up a case of wine, then come up, sit out in the sun and drink of the vines that surround you.....

.... The house is contemporary from top to toe, with every tiny detail a monument to cutting-edge design: low-slung wooden beds, walls of glass, galvanised iron, sharp lines, loads of space and a cool, designed feel - expect the best of everything. There is lots of wood, too, in blond ash floors and red gum doors and reclaimed wharf beams which support the house. Slide open one of the huge walls of glass and you can head out for a gentle stroll along avenues of vines. There are no curtains or blinds in the sitting-room, but you won’t have visitors here. Then there's a fully-equipped, hi-tech kitchen, a barbecue outside or there are good local restaurants, if you don’t want to cook. And if you need any further reason to put Coonawarra on your hit list, Punters Corner won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for Best Red of the Year 2000, Australia’s most coveted wine award.
