Touring Options

McLaren Vale, Adelaide Self Drive 4 Days – SAC/DRIVE

The McLaren Vale is half an hour south of Adelaide, between the Southern Adelaide Hills and the sea. The area’s hot summer growing season is tempered by cool afternoon sea breezes. The region is known for old fashioned full bodied reds which have much to do with the mild temperate climate, complex soils and winemaking technique. White wines also have a certain full flavoured intensity about them. The region is best known for Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and more recently, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. Its proximity to Adelaide, pleasant sea views and rustic small wineries have made McLaren Vale a thriving tourist centre, with many superb restaurants and bed and breakfasts full of local colour.
