A visit to the newest McLaren Vale cellar door

With over 90 cellar doors in McLaren Vale it can be hard to stand out of the crowd. The newest cellar door in McLaren Vale doesn’t have that problem. McCarthy’s Orchard has been around a while producing many types of fruit, growing grapes and making their own wine. They had been planning on opening their own cellar door and a few months ago finally cut the ribbons.

Located in a beautifully rustic shed, Lisa and Mark have made this a homely and welcoming place to taste wine, enjoy a platter and just enjoy. With a play area of kids, a large deck, a swing in a tree and safe grounds to play around it’s a wonderful spot for anyone looking for good fruit, wine and for families to enjoy.

They focus on growing the best quality products they can and using other locally sourced products on their platters. Combine this with their down to earth personalities and every customer will be in for a treat. With winter here they have a roaring fire going every day to keep themselves and customers warm and comfy.
