The birthplace of South Australian wine, McLaren Vale boasts more than 80 vineyards. The region lies just south of Adelaide on the Fleurieu Peninsula and attracts an innovative new breed of winemakers who like to combine great wine with surprising art and culture. Uncover hidden galleries shrouded by vines or head to d’Arenberg winery, home to a large scale rubix cube installation, a ‘Museum of Alternate Realities’ and a virtual fermenter. Rent a bike and follow the 8km Shiraz Trail along the old railway line and enjoy the lush landscape rolling past. If you’re feeling more creative, attend a masterclass and create your own blend of vino. The Kaurna people are the traditional custodians of this land.
