McLaren Vale is located 45 minutes south of Adelaide - the capital of South Australia, Australia.
The official McLaren Vale Geographical Indication (GI) declaration was made in 1997. It captures an area from Hallett Cove, across to Clarendon, and then roughly south then south-west along the ridge of the foothills until it meets the coast at Sellicks Beach.
The official textual description of the McLaren Vale GI can be found on the Wine Australia website.
The McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association acknowledges the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where the McLaren Vale Region is situated today, and pays its respect to Elders past and present.
