Gourmet Traveller Wine - Best Cellar Doors in McLaren Vale

One minute you’re among the vines, the next you’re standing in the sand on some of South Australia’s most picturesque beaches – welcome to McLaren Vale. Often referred to as The Vale, it’s a region known for some big names in the wine world, but is also home to an impressive list of boutique producers bringing balance and freshness. McLaren Vale shiraz and grenache are no doubt the stars here, but the region’s Mediterranean climate also sees it home to an array of alternative varieties such as nero d’Avola, montepulciano, fiano and barbera. You’ll find relaxed tasting flights, exclusive masterclasses, winery tours, food and wine matching sessions all here and waiting. As well as the cellar doors, you’ll also come across some premium distilleries and breweries, making The Vale a destination for all.

Gourmet Traveller WINE have released their much anticipated Best Cellar Doors list and we are thrilled to see the following McLaren Vale wineries recognised:
