5 Fantastic Wineries of McLaren Vale

The Boutique Adventurer

Nestled within the southern Mount Lofty Ranges lies the Mclaren Vale wine region, home to more than 80 cellar doors.

The breezes of the Fleurieu peninsula’s west and east coast allow for the perfect year-long yield of fruits, warmed by the summer months producing the finest wine.

There are literally more than 80 wineries and cellar doors here in the Mclaren vale region so getting to all of them is going to prove a challenge. I'm listing just a handful of wineries here that were memorable!
