Since 2019, our Cellar Door has been a joint venture with members of the Vale Cru, a collective of small batch winemakers which was founded in 2009, a collaboration to learn from and aid each other as we navigate the crazy industry we love so much.
Another focus is to promote not only our wines but also the ever-growing number of artisan food producers all working within the beautiful McLaren Vale region, a natural partner, as well of course the region itself.
Our home ideally reflects this, located in the McLaren Vale Visitor Centre at the gateway to the main township of McLaren Vale, the perfect location to start a trip or visit to the region.
You can taste premium wines from 5 permanent members and might be lucky to catch one of the emerging wine brands that we support on a regular basis, as is the ethos of the group.
The wine experience is open 7 days a week and you will always find one of the owners behind the counter, so can be guaranteed of an intimate and structured tasting. More importantly with somebody who is more than happy to share their knowledge of the region with all the material you need to discover your trip at hand.
We host many events throughout the year, including wine masterclasses, cinema nights, dinners and music events, so if you’re keen to hear about the goings on of the Cru, join our mailing list by clicking here.
Don’t forget to pop in and say ‘hi’ next time you’re visiting the Vale.
