Ever wondered what happens behind-the-scenes at a working winery? Love trying fresh, locally sourced food and spending time meeting new people while out discovering new places?
If this sounds like the perfect day out, let us take you on a journey to help you discover some of McLaren Vale's best kept secrets, and open the door to our beautiful region.
EXPLORE, WINE & DINE
Our unique ‘Explore, Wine & Dine’ experience is like no other. Be taken on a guided tour of discovery where you will learn about our winery’s history whilst being introduced to the future of our region and the importance of what we are doing to ensure it.
This educational tour of our Estate property in McLaren Flat showcases how the decisions made by our founders almost 40 years ago have had a positive and sustainable impact on the way we produce our wines today, whilst also providing a true insight into the modern and innovative steps we have taken to protect, support and strengthen our, and our region’s, future.
After exploring our vineyards and winery, you will be hosted to a private, personalised tasting, featuring many of the wines that were discussed throughout the tour, where you can take the opportunity to find out more intricate details about our winemaking process and philosophy.
Once complete, you will take a short, guided walk through our native woodlot and vineyards to our award-winning, hatted restaurant, The Currant Shed. Here, you will indulge in a regionally inspired 3-course lunch, complete with Shottesbrooke wines and an incredible view of our vineyards and gardens. Between courses, feel free to treat yourself to a self-guided tour of the Currant Shed’s own vegetable patch and delightful Tahitian lime grove, or simply sit back, relax and take in the charming ambiance that only McLaren Vale can offer.
