McLaren Vale is a favourite South Australian wine region less than an hour from Adelaide. It has more than 60 cellar doors producing great shiraz, grenache, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. McLaren Vale also has stunning beaches and magnificent food, and is an excellent starting point for a scenic drive through the Fleurieu Peninsula.
