You’ll find rolling hills, dairy pastures, orchards, farms and vineyards, all bounded by picturesque beaches and rugged coastline as you head towards McLaren Vale. Sip world-class wines in one of the 90 cellar doors. McLaren Vale, famous for its Shiraz, is a world-class wine region found in the Fleurieu Peninsula, joined by Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and the Southern Fleurieu.
The first McLaren Vale vines were planted by John Reynell in 1838, two years after the proclamation of the colony of South Australia.
A food and wine trail that heads out from Mount Compass through some of the best food spots on the Fleurieu Peninsula is a great culinary experience for the senses. Catch a rainbow trout, try some tasty cheese from the cheese maker’s own outlet and taste olive oil direct from the groves.
Upmarket restaurants and cafés have trendy chefs who love the lifestyle and wide range of fresh, local food. The pubs, some with extensive wine lists and sommelier service, all have character and exciting food experiences inspired by the locally grown produce.
