Adelaide's vines meet the sea
South Australia is synonymous with good vino so why not sample the local drops at a hospitable wine region like McLaren Vale, 37 km from Adelaide, and the gateway to the easy-on-the-eye Fleurieu Peninsula. With 76 cellar-doors, wine tastings are within easy reach and cycling between them has become increasingly popular. Blessed Cheese provide bike hire and cheese boxes to the winos taking the walking and cycling track from McLaren Vale to Willunga, 6 km south. Pick up a free map from the McLaren Vale & Fleurieu visitor centre to plot your gourmet trail. There is something timeless about South Australia and this is one of the state's best regional areas for indulgence and natural wonder.
