Only 45 minutes south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale sits on Fleurieu Peninsula, a region of vineyards and olive groves caressed by cooling breezes from the sea and the hills. Start your day at Mount Lofty Summit, a reputable lookout boasting panoramic views across all of Adelaide, and indulge in the picturesque scenery of the Adelaide Hills while en route.

Rolling hills and vineyards with rustic stone cottages form the backdrop of one of South Australia’s finest wine regions. The birthplace of wine in South Australia, McLaren Vale’s vines were planted in 1838 and the region now presents over 73 premium cellar doors to explore, with an emphasis on the internationally recognised ‘trilogy’ of fine Australian reds: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache. Combine your tasting with expert knowledge from a personal wine guide.
With a variety of quality restaurants ranging from casual to formal, McLaren Vale’s fare will impress and satisfy. Spectacular destinations like Star of Greece offer delicious, cliffside dining experiences with a Mediterranean feel, alongside commanding views of Port Willunga beach and the coastline.

A local favourite, the eclectic styling of d’Arenberg Cube provides 360° views of the region. A personal tour through the Cube will immerse you within five sensory levels, including their 360° video room, wine sensory room, and art exhibition gallery.

30 kilometres of breath-taking coastline and ranges frame McLaren Vale’s distinctive region. Showcasing a diversity of tasting experiences within a stunning environment, a tour of McLaren Vale is certain to delight.
