A beautiful day spent at Mclaren Vale recently. We are kind of romantic birds and love to take a flight alone every now and then to absorb nature, sip a cup of coffee together and eat some good food.
Visitor Centre is the first place to go in any area when you are travelling especially around Australia. This is the beautiful McLaren Vale Visitor Centre also emcompassing a beautiful spacious Art Gallery - The Stump Hill Art Gallery.
You can easily spend hours in Visitor centre alone, as it has a wine tasting bar, art gallery, shop showcasing local produce and art and crafts and a cafe that sells yummmm Gelato !
Our next stop was this cute cafe 'Tin Shed' Cafe - a really cute little cafe in the heart of Mclaren Vale.
Based in famous Salopian Inn, I have been meaning to come to the Vale Ale brewery ( Mclaren Vale Beer Co.) for a long time. Beautiful venue for lunch although we had some Pizza, cake and coffee and my camera's battery had died by that time (Will never forget to re-charge before taking it with me next time !).
I believe Vale Ale is SA's 3rd largest brewery now. They offer tasting of 4 different types of beers ranging from clean crisp tasting to American style dark lager. Hmmm....Sniff, swirl, swallow.
We found it to be a perfect spot to watch the day go by...
