South Australia’s viticultural origins began in McLaren Vale and our region’s Mediterranean climate continues to drive the wine style and diverse food culture.
Best known for Shiraz, McLaren Vale also excels in the production of ultra-premium Grenache and Cabernet. Mediterranean varieties such as Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese are also very well suited climatically and provide wine lovers with yet another layer of discovery.
Over one third of our cellar doors offer local produce as part of the tasting experience – from high-end, starred restaurants to casual platters – there is a wine and food combination to suit any taste.
Our region’s 30 kilometres of breath-taking coastline and ranges define McLaren Vale’s boundaries, and the distinct landscapes and environment within.
