Too many wineries, so little time!
McLaren Vale is famous for its wineries (and specifically its Shiraz), and it would be unfair to single out just one at this late stage of the race. If you notice the teams slowing down as they cycle past, it’s because they’ve probably been to a few of the cellar doors along the way and brought home a few reds for the finish line. Whether it’s the oldest family-owned and operated wineries in Angove McLaren Vale Winery, or Hugo Wines for its wines and panoramic views of the surrounding area, you’re bound to pick a winner when it comes to a bottle of red.
A wealth of information on the large number of wineries available for you to visit can be found here.
Art inside, outside, by the trees and along the garden path… these are sculptures that you cannot afford to miss.
If you’re a fan of lush greenery and the great outdoors, this is the place to lose oneself amongst the acres of pine forest. Mosey around with a glass of wine or cup of coffee from the Bar as you appreciate the works of some of Australia’s best artists. The large number of sculptures made for the outdoors will leave you and your family awed and amazed. Marvel at all the amazing and intriguing sights, such as the large cello nestled in the forest or the metal horn situated along the path. If any cyclist passes by and looks like they’re about to slow down for a peek, do give them a gentle reminder that there’s a race going on and it’s best leave the art appreciation to you…!
Bella Cosa Sculpture Park, Gallery and Guest Cottage is located on Kangarilla Road, McLaren Flat, just 5km east of the McLaren Vale Township and in the heart of the wine region
