Twilight Tour in McLaren Vale

Updated: Mar 26

Partner N Wine has set out to fill a gap in the market for small group wine tours by introducing Twilight Tours in McLaren Vale.

We are bucking trends, and challenging traditions. 

Traditionally, wine tours have always started early and ended at 5pm. After-all It was country music legend Alan Jackson that sang “it’s 5-o’clock somewhere.”

Yet not everyone feels like a Shiraz at 10am. 

This is why we’re introducing Twilight Tours on Friday nights. Starting at the first winery at 3pm and ending after your dinner ends at 9pm, we believe this is the best way to explore McLaren Vale and the Fleurieu Coast, while watching the sunset in summer. 

Those from the east-coast are often envious that the sun sets over the ocean in South Australia and we take for granted how pretty our sunsets are here. 

This is an example itinerary which would be perfect for a clear warm summer’s night along the Fleurieu Coast.

1st stop Pannell Enoteca at 3pm

We love Pannell Enoteca on a summer’s day. They have a huge deck, which is a funny phrase when said in a New Zealand accent. Jokes aside, the fact that they have three brands operating at the same cellar door, means that there is something for everyone. There’s some great white wines from Protero, including their Pinot Gris and their Aromatico.

SC Pannell’s range are some of our favourite red wines. Tempranillo, Touriga, and Montepulciano are sure to impress. Finally Koomilya's Rosé from a single Mataro block is also a standout wine. 

2nd stop Berg Herring at 4:30pm 

We then venture down south to Sellicks Beach to visit Berg Herring’s beautiful cellar door church to repent for our sins. Holy Communion would have had more visitors if the wine tasted as good as the wine at Berg Herring. Sip some lovely Italian white wines like Fiano and Vermentino. For full-bodied red wine lovers, Berg Herring does a wonderful blend of Saperavi and Barbera.

Dinner at Star of Greece at 6:30pm

One of the jewels of the south, Star of Greece is our go-to seaside dining restaurant to take full advantage of a South Australian sunset. 

It doesn’t get any better than enjoying Star of Greece’s consistently outstanding food, while watching the sun radiate off the terracotta cliffs.

We then leave by 9pm to drop you home as the sun sets on your twilight tour.
