Aphelion Cellar Door


You are invited to the front room of our heritage Willunga home for a welcoming, COVID Safe and socially distanced tasting directly with the heartbeat of Aphelion.

Straight out of the blocks, Aphelion gained a strong reputation for quality and value. This has continued since Aphelion was established in 2014 by husband and wife Rob & Louise Mack,

McLaren Vale's Best Small Producer 2019

Young Gun of Wine 2018

Pedigreed winemaker Rob Mack concentrates on grape varieties that thrive in the Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale, producing stylish Grenache as well as other regionally emerging varieties, such as Mataro and Sagrantino.

We craft our wines to match the foods we love to eat - Italian, Mediterranean, and Asian.

 It starts with the sun and the earth.

Our aim in the winery is to handcraft using minimal intervention authentic, quality McLaren Vale wines that speak of their provenance while they match perfectly with the food you love, our climate, and your life’s best moments.
