Twelve McLaren Vale wineries have been named in the Top 100 Wineries of Australia 2024!

Revered wine publication The Real Review has revealed its anticipated list of Top Wineries of Australia for 2024.

The Real Review's Australian tasting team consisting of Huon Hooke, Stuart Knox, Aaron Brasher, Gabrielle Poy and Ralph Kyte-Powell, tasted more than 10,000 wines over the assessment period. Each wine was scored out of 100, then the results of each winery's best wines were used to produce the Top Wineries list.

A place on the coveted The Real Review Top Wineries list is earned through wineries consistently producing excellent wine. We're delighted that these McLaren Vale producers have been recognised for their excellence in The Real Review's Top 100 Wineries of Australia for 2024:

#21. Hardys
#27. Dandelion
#28. Hickinbotham
#35. Yangarra Estate Vineyard
#36. d'Arenberg
#49. S.C. Pannell
#51. Bekkers Wine
#81. Coriole Vineyards
#84. Aphelion
#86. Chapel Hill
#93. Thistledown
#94. Bondar

Among the biggest movers this year were McLaren Vale wineries Hickinbotham, S.C. Pannell and Dandelion Vineyards who all moved up impressively in the rankings.
