Nestled between the Mount Lofty Ranges and white sandy beaches is one of South Australia's oldest and most picturesque regions, widely recognised for its commitment water use efficiency and environmental sustainability. Shiraz is McLaren Vale’s most important variety with a diversity of styles produced. Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay also show region’s distinction for wines of ripeness, elegance, structure, power and complexity, whilst the region’s Mediterranean climate has welcomed varieties like Viognier, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre, Savagnin, Marsanne, Roussanne, Barbera and Fiano. John Reynell and Thomas Hardy first planted grapevines in the region in 1838 and the fruits of vines that are more than 100-years-old still flourish today.
