The McLaren Vale Wine Region is adding to it’s world class status, recently awarded international accolades from Lonely Planet, Trivago and Great Wine Capitals of the World.

Recently, Adelaide was accepted into the Great Wine Capitals of the World Network, the only Australian city included in the network. Adelaide is the gateway to all 18 of South Australia’s regions and puts McLaren Vale alongside some of the world’s most well-known wine regions including Bordeaux and the Napa Valley.

Lonely Planet listed South Australia as the fifth top region to visit in 2017 (the only Australian region to make the coveted list), with McLaren Vale listed as one of the top reasons for the accolade.

Trivago recently announced McLaren Vale as the ‘best-rated destination for accommodation in South Australia for 2017’ and fifth in Australia.
