McLaren Vale is a country area located 40 km from the capital of South Australia, Adelaide. It is one of the continent’s most well-known wine regions and, from the 76 cellars, come several of the world’s finest wines. Visitors will be impressed by the passion and energy of the local community.

This area has a Mediterranean climate which means you will find four definite seasons. Winter is cool and rainy, summer is warm and dry, autumn is glorious and calm, and spring is beautiful and fresh. Frost and droughts are very rare, as a result farming ventures are prosperous. A lot of the rain comes in winter when ominous black storms roll in from the sea and cover the hills with clouds.

The Vale serves as a portal to Fleurieu Peninsula that’s a tourist haven. Here, you’re offered many attractions, pleasant beaches, natural flora, unique wildlife, and fresh produce like you have never tasted. For those who enjoy diving or snorkeling, the peninsula can be a paradise with fantastic marine life, the famous Leafy Seadragon (a seahorse species) and old shipwrecks. You can even taste a number of Australia’s most renowned wines. Three worth mentioning are a black Shiraz, a rich Cabernet Sauvignon, and a smooth Grenache.

Getting to McLaren Vale and the peninsula is easy. Using the freeway from Adelaide, a car trip takes about 40 minutes. Those who prefer a scenic drive can go via Clarendon and still get there in less than an hour. This makes it an easy day trip, a Sunday lunch on the coast, or a perfect weekend of relaxation.

The locals are fanatical about the food, wine, and culture in the region. However, what they are most proud of is their hospitality. Stay here and wake in the morning to a hearty breakfast while looking over the vineyards or watch the waves rolling in. Learn about art and history and see where some of the world’s finest produce is grown. The locals will suggest the best attractions like museums, galleries, outdoor trails, and even where you can be served the perfect coffee.

When you visit McLaren Vale, there are a few definite musts. For instance, take an early morning walk in the Onkaparinga Gorge and see wildlife in an untouched environment while strolling through native bushland. Eat out at one of the various restaurants and enjoy one or two glasses of the best local wine. All chefs use local produce to ensure a excellent dining experience.

Many visitors come to this part of the world in October to join the festivities at the peninsula. However, it doesn’t matter what time of the year you visit, you’re going to get the same quality of food, wine, and hospitality. Stop in at the Willunga Farmers Market and buy all kinds of yummy goodies for a picnic.

When looking for accommodation McLaren Vale, there are lots of choices. These consist of beach houses, Bed and Breakfasts, hotels, caravan sites, motels, tourist parks, apartments, and camping or caravan facilities.
