South Australia’s McLaren Vale has become a bastion of the gastronomic, in no small part thanks to the audacious architecture of The Cube restaurant and tasting room at the d’Arenberg Winery. Our McLaren Vale and Cube Tour with Lunch makes it exceptionally easy for you to experience all there is on offer in and around the town, from morning tea and beer tastings to the multitude of fantastic galleries and shops.

Passing through the southern suburbs from central Adelaide, the first designated stop on your McLaren Vale and Cube Tour and Lunch is at the Stump Hill Café. Start as you mean to go on with a tasty morning tea, or take the additional option of sampling a selection of wines from some of the region’s smaller vineyards while looking out over the gardens.
You may instead want to save yourself for what is one of several tour highlights – your arrival at the d’Arenberg Winery’s Cube. Sat among its neat rows of vines, The Cube mimics the form of a Rubik’s cube. Rising to the height of a five-storey building, its upper floors provide staggering views across the surrounding landscape. However, it’s better known for the delights that depart its kitchens and cellar spaces, as you’ll realise for yourself when you tuck into your included two-course lunch.
If you manage to tear yourself away, the tasting pavilion of the nearby Beresford Wines stands ready to serve you up a range of their estate and limited release wines, local craft beers or regionally distilled gins, depending on your preference.
Your exploration of the region’s fine food and drink ends at the historic Wirra Wirra vineyards, but you’ll also have plenty of free time to take in the pleasant surroundings of McLaren Vale’s main street stores before your return to central Adelaide.
