The McLaren Vale Vintage and Classic will return making Mclaren Vale come alive with motoring history, vintage fashion, local wines, local food, and music, on April 18 April.
This will be the event’s 16th year and there will be more than 500 vintage and classic motor vehicles parading along the streets of McLaren Vale with the region’s breathtaking views in the background.
For entrants, the day will kick off on the lawns of Serafino wines where they will fuel up for the day with a big breakfast and get the chance to mingle with fellow car enthusiasts.
The grand parade officially begins at 11 am with the masses of cars rolling out from Serafino and embarking on the 2km drive down the main street where 100s of spectators will be watching them.
At the end of the main route, the sea of vehicles will part ways and head towards one of ten wineries, including Paxton Wines, Hugo Wines, and Shingleback Wine Cellar Door, where visitors will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the motor masterpieces.
Shingleback will be hosting at least 8 McLaren’s which motoring enthusiasts will know is a site to see so that will no doubt be high on the places to visit that day.
Like many events, vintage and classic did not happen last year due to Covid 19 and Chairman Trevor Sharp, is thrilled to get back to the event for 2021.
“It’s a perfect day for the whole family to enjoy and for motor enthusiasts and the general public alike. As well as the wonderful parade of vehicles on show, visitors will also be able to enjoy the exquisite tastes of McLaren Vale’s world-class wineries, enjoying premium local wines, delicious gourmet foods and musical entertainment throughout the day, all in the picturesque surroundings of the region,” Trevor said.
Organisers are encouraging participants and spectators to wear clothes from the era of their car of their favourite car to go in the running to win prizes for the best dressed.
