McLaren Vale Cellar Door
Nestled in the family’s historic and trophy-winning Warboys Vineyard, the Angove McLaren Vale Cellar Door on Chalk Hill Road is set amongst a sea of vines. The western end of the building is traditional old Adelaide bluestone and is a replica of the original ‘Brightlands’ cellar where Dr Angove made his first wines. The remainder of the building includes floor to ceiling glass ensuring panoramic vineyard views and abundant natural light.
Outside, the Waboys Vineyard is a fully certified organic and biodynamic vineyard, and produces many of the best parcels of grapes for our winery each vintage. The vineyard has undergone a recent rejuvenation, with new plantings of Carignan, Grenache, Shiraz and Fiano complimenting existing 50+ year old Shiraz and Grenache vines. Then there are the priceless circa 80-100 year old Shiraz vines that bear fruit worthy of inclusion in The Medhyk Old Vine Shiraz, Angove's Icon wine.
Inside the Angove McLaren Vale Cellar Door is a state-of-the-art wine tasting facility. Iconic, rare, single vineyard, organic and alternative variety wines are served from world-best Enomatic wine cabinets; each wine preserved and poured in perfect condition and at perfect temperature. Equally at home in such a modern setting, the tasting bench has been carefully hand crafted with Jarrah recycled from the Angove Winery’s 100 year old storage vats, bringing some unique history to the beautiful tasting area.
The cellar door wine list is complemented by plates of cheese and local goodness available daily from 12 - 3pm. For an immersion in what makes McLaren Vale such a special wine region, choose our Icon Wine tasting experience to delve deeper into the fascinating nuances of individual vineyard sites and the rare wines created from them.
Small private and boutique corporate events can also be held here at Angove McLaren Vale. Corporate guests will find a special environment for small conferences and boutique executive retreats in the exceptionally appointed boardroom. This room overlooks the Warboys Vineyard and provides a certain ambience conducive to productive discussions and time well spent. As expected, hire of this space can be combined with food packages from local providores as well as Angove McLaren Vale wine tastings. Small private events of up to 40 guests can also be accommodated in our enclosed courtyard area. Featuring floor-to-ceiling glass and bi-fold doors, this space offers an unparallelled feeling of being within our vineyard, with direct access to our lawned area to relax on sunny days. (Please note: self catering is not permitted.) For further information visit our McLaren Vale Corporate and Private Events page.
