Wine Lovers Are Going Nuts For Fleurieu Peninsula
Take a bunch of wine zones, dot them throughout a setting of hills, forest and coastal scenes all in one must-visit-now destination, and you get the Fleurieu Peninsula wine scene.
We're talking over 100 cellar doors in some of the most breath-taking and happy-making diverse wine region scenery you can get. So, grab a car, sat-nav, designated driver - or hop-on-hop-off bus - and get exploring.
Here's some of our faves:
1. McLaren Vale
A crazy mix of young guns and old master winemakers are dotted throughout this coastal wine paradise to give you a fun and fanciful wine ride through the many and varied wineries of McLaren Vale.
Alpha Box and Dice
Ground-breaking, rule-changing and a whole lot of delicious fun.
The views, the garden, the food, THE WINE!
2. Langhorne Creek
Old vines and wine-making passion meet in this hidden-gem of a wine region. There’s plenty of wine to be tasted, so it’s worth the effort to get off the well-worn wine trail.
Started in the 1850s. Try the Sparkling Shiraz for an all together different experience.
3. Currency Creek
Wind (not wine) your way around the forest and farmland of Currency Creek to uncover some wines unique to this little region due to the particular climate conditions.
Currency Creek Wines
160 acres of established vines, nestled next to the Tookayerta Creek – sounds good enough to us
4. Mt Compass
This pretty farming town on the road from Adelaide to Port Elliot has some cute little wineries around that are definitely worth exploring.
Mt Jagged Winery
Eat. Drink. Be Merry
5. Kuitpo Forest
Pretty Kuitpo Forest is an Instagram darling, so grab your photos and then reward yourself with some wine time.
Cute, pretty, yum, yum!
6. Port Elliot
Not exactly a wine "region" but definitley worth a mention.
No. 58 Cellar Door
Wine, dogs, bocci - repeat! This little beauty is within walking distance of Port Elliot Beach House YHA - sorted.
