McLaren Vale & Fleurieu Tours
Only 45 minutes south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is one of the world’s most picturesque wine regions, with over 80 cellar doors to explore. Located on the Fleurieu Peninsular between pristine white sandy beaches, and the Mt Lofty ranges the region has a Mediterranean climate, which allows the area to excel in sustainable wine growing practices.
McLaren Vale is best known for Shiraz; however, the region also transcends with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Spanish and Italian varieties such as Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo, Mouvedre, Nero d’Avola & Sangiovese – to name but a few.
Langhorne Creek “Langhorne Creek has a wine history dating back to 1850. Traditionally a red wine growing district well known for production of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. These two red wine grape varieties constitute approximately 70% of the total vineyard plantings in the region. Over recent years, considerable experimentation has occurred, and a wide range of grape varieties are now grown.
The vineyards harvest from early March to late April. The town is on the banks of the Bremer River which flows into Lake Alexandrina. In winter, the river frequently floods across the vineyards, contributing to the terroir of the region.”
Langhorne Creek is a world of wine to discover. The area was originally called Langhorne Crossing.
Two hours south of Adelaide is the coastal town of Victor Harbor. Named after Captain Crozier’s ship the Victor – in 1837. Ride on the horse drawn tram as it slowly crosses the causeway to Granite Island, see the steam Cockle train travel along the coast to Goolwa, These two events – on their own, will take you back to a time when the world was much less convoluted.
Afterwards, visit the Mouth of the Murray River. The fifth longest in the world and the longest river in Australia. Southern Right whales can be seen from the beaches in the Winter months.
