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 100 year old Shiraz vines that bear fruit worthy of inclusion in The Medhyk Old Vine Shiraz, the family's icon wine.
Inside the Angove McLaren Vale Cellar Door is a state-of-the-art tasting facility. Iconic, rare, single vineyard, organic and alternative variety wines are served from world-best Enomatic wine serving cabinets; each wine preserved and poured in perfect condition and at perfect temperature. Equally at home in such a modern setting, the tasting bench and much of the woodwork 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 shared regional food platters and cheese plates which are available daily from 12 - 3pm (CLICK HERE for our MENU). Or after your wine tasting, simply relax with single origin, fair trade, organic coffee and a selection of tempting sweets. Furthermore, an outdoor courtyard area can be privately hired for fantastic food and wine events. The space features a large wood fired oven, and we have a number of catering options to suit your needs. (Please note: self catering is not permitted.)
Corporate guests will also 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. All of this and so close to the city of Adelaide. For further information visit our McLaren Vale Corporate and Private Events page.
Group tastings are also welcome, with a prior confirmed booking being required. The group booking fee is $5 per person, payable at the time of booking to confirm your wine experience here at cellar door. The maximum group size is 15 guests, and please note for our responsible service of guests we do not accept groups travelling on licenced transport.
Angove McLaren Vale Vineyards and Cellar Door is a fantastic place to try and buy some special wines, plus relax, unwind and enjoy the stunning views.
