Visit the diverse landscape of McLaren Vale where the Vines meet the Sea.
Enjoy five Cellar Doors - all offering a different experience from rustic to modern - and all offering amazing wines and atmostphere.
We depart the city towards Glenelg and take the coastal route to the Fleurieu Peninsular. Our drive down the beautiful mid south coast, with its glistening visas of the Gulf of St Vincent and pristine beaches awards our arrival at our first famous Cellar door.
We have time for two more beautiful wineries steeped in history before lunch at a local cafe. After lunch we drive though the ‘Vale’ to visit three more cellar doors, passing rolling vistas of vineyards along the way. However if you’re all ‘cellar doored out’ our last winery also has sensational tea / coffee and handmade chocolates (own expense).
