The Southern Fleurieu region is set amongst rolling hills, pastures, national parks and rugged coastlines.

Cosy cellar doors

Small coastal towns like Victor Harbor, Normanville and Port Elliot lead you to cosy cellar doors.

The Southern Fleurieu includes Yankalilla, Mount Jagged, Hindmarsh Valley and Victor Harbor. You’ll find excellent Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and more. Cellar doors are open on weekends and many have restaurants.

Great food to match

The real Fleurieu standouts are medium bodied and spicy Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz Viognier. These are the kind of wines that you want to linger over.

Try Victor Harbor Winery. Its veranda is a lovely spot to have a tipple and a cheese platter. The Mont Rosa restaurant at the winery will satisfy a larger appetite!

The Square Waterhole has a great pizza menu. It’s open weekends and public holidays, though it’s a good idea to phone ahead. Parri Estate will welcome you to their cellar door. They’ve also got one in McLaren Vale.

Take a sip of Mount Jagged's distinctive wine. You might also be tempted by local food available at the cellar door. They’re open every day, so there’s no excuse not to stop in.

Historic cottages and sea views

Minko Wines cellar door is a beautiful cottage. It’s a perfect setting for the wholesome meals they’ll serve you. 

On weekends, step out onto the veranda at Carrickalinga Creek Vineyard and Cellar Door. Enjoy the stunning views of Gulf St Vincent.

You will see plenty of vineyards throughout this region. Some don’t offer cellar door tastings but you might be the lucky one who finds a secret cellar door or a chance, exclusive tasting. If you’re unsure, call ahead.
