MCLAREN VALE

Where rolling hills meet some of the most stunning coastline in Australia, this is a region that is very easy on the eye and one that enjoys a great climate for wine grapes. It’s long attracted those who appreciate quality living and so you’ll find endless opportunities to lose yourself in relaxed, nourishing enjoyment. Newer varieties from Europe’s Mediterranean countries have found a home here and grenache is the red hot grape of the moment. There’s a proud food culture that fuels the Vale and you’ll find the locals are full of warmth and generosity. Good times await. NICK STOCK

These three newer producers have created a cellar door experience that is really quite unique. Well-located on McMurtrie Road, and actually called ‘148 McMurtrie Road’, this is a share house cellar door where, quite literally, you go from one flatmate’s room to the next. Each winemaker hosts you in their own style and the tastings are all distinctively different. You’ll find some of the most delicious whites and reds in the region and there’s plenty of seating around the exterior to set up camp with your favourite choices and enjoy the famously good weather. You’ll leave here refreshed physically and mentally as this is a house of skilled winemakers at the leading edge of all that is great in the region. A triple threat of innovation and quality in the Vale that is not to be missed.
