Discover some of the best food and wine McLaren Vale has to offer, including a visit to the spectacular d’Arenberg Cube. From wine tastings to gin or beer tastings, and a delicious Italian style shared lunch, you are sure to find something that tempts the tastebuds on this full day tour. Sit back and relax whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery of this well-known wine region, only a 45-minute drive from Adelaide.
Leaving Adelaide, head out through the southern suburbs and along the metropolitan coastline. Enjoy coastal views as you head to McLaren Vale Information Centre for morning tea.
Then it’s onto one of the highlights of your day, the d’Arenberg Cube. Nestled amongst the vineyards, this 5 level “rubiks cube” has been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses. From the Alternate Realities Museum to the many art installations on display there is so much to see and experience whilst you are there. Your visit will also include a formal wine tasting on Level 4 where you can enjoy panoramic views of the vineyards.
Next head to Chalk Hill Wines, a family-owned winery, dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family has been growing grapes for six generations and has six vineyards spread across the McLaren Vale region. Indulge in a traditional Italian style shared lunch prepared by Cucina Di Strada, paired with four of Chalk Hill’s most popular wines.
Continue to Beresford Wines, where you can choose from one of three tastings in their new Tasting Pavilion. The Premium Wine Tasting introduces you to a selection of their wines from the Estate and Limited Release range. The Vale Brewing Tasting offers up to five craft beers from the sessionable Vale range. And the third option is the 23rd Street Distillery tastings, where you can choose from five craft spirits or three craft gins.
The final cellar door is Wirra Wirra Vineyards, located amongst the gum trees in the historic ironstone cellars. Enjoy a short tour of the cellars and a structured tasting of their range of quality wines. Look out for the ‘catapult’ and the ¾ tonne Angelus Bell in the picturesque grounds surrounding the cellar door.
After your visit to Wirra Wirra Vineyards, settle back on the coach for your return trip to Adelaide.
