Gin You Wine Tour
Discover McLaren Vale: A Journey of Flavours and Scenery
A Day in the Heart of Australia’s Wine Country
McLaren Vale is home to many world-class wines, sustainable wine growing, local gourmet produce, and, more recently, gin distilleries. This Gin You Wine McLaren Vale Tour takes the classic wine tour to a whole new level.
Start your day with a visit to a boutique winery known for its extremely passionate mother-and-daughter team who makes some of the region’s most interesting wine blends. Whether you like whites or reds a visit to this cellar door will delight your tastebuds and leave you wanting more.
The d’Arenberg Cube
No visit to McLaren Vale would be complete without a visit to the iconic dÁrenberg Cube. Be enticed and excited with features such as the wine sensory room, virtual fermenter, 360-degree video room, and many more tactile experiences. This perfectly designed tour allows you plenty of time to explore the Cube and get a feel for the man (Chester Osborn) who designed it on a napkin back in 2003.
Once you’ve explored the lower levels of the Cube, it’s time to head up to the top level for your wine-tasting journey in the brand dÁrenberg. Whilst up there, you can also enjoy the panoramic views across McLaren Vale to the Fleurieu coast. Perfect for those Instagram shots.
In keeping with all the fun and quirkiness that is the Cube, we head downstairs to the Singapore Circus restaurant and enjoy an Asian-inspired, visually audacious, and flavourful feed-me menu.
Ginny Pig Distillery
Once your bellies are full, we return to the road and head up to one of the first operational distilleries in the McLaren Vale region. This distillery specialises in crafting a wide selection of delicious aromatic gins. Make sure to try their G & Tea Breakfast Gin infused with Earl Grey tea or their Shiraz gin, uniquely crafted to fit the region.
