Private Winery tours in McLaren Vale Wine Region
McLaren Vale is one of the premier shiraz growing regions of the world. Shiraz makes up the majority of the vine plantings in the region, with cabernet sauvignon, grenache, and chardonnay also abundant. ‘Alternative’ varieties are also planted in the region. These include; Marsanne, Roussanne, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Viognier, and Zinfandel.
A tour through McLaren Vale is reminiscent of Tuscany, not only the grape varieties (with some fantastic Sangiovese, and Barbera’s being produced) but also fresh and pungent olive oils, crusty bread, and the essential stinky cheese — a gourmand would be in heaven.
