What sounds better than sipping a premium red wine from one of the best wineries in the McLaren Vale while you breathe in that salty sea air among the balmy breeze? You might say nothing. How about doing that at a five-star luxury hotel surrounded by green, rolling vineyards?
One of our McLaren Vale faves, Wirra Wirra, have announced a hotel development partnership with Greaton. The plan is to build the first five-star accommodation in the McLaren Vale wine region and the first winery resort in South Australia!
“Our wine regions are a tourism hot-spot and Wirra Wirra is one of South Australia’s exceptional tourism assets—naturally we predict interest in the hotel will be strong,” said Minister for Tourism, Trade and Investment, David Ridgeway.
(And we totally agree—we can’t wait to book a room!)
“McLaren Vale has been crying out for five-star accommodation of this scale for for years. The development will provide a base for visitors to not only enjoy the world class wine the region has to offer, but also the magnificent beaches, food and diverse nature experiences that can be found right across the greater Fleurieu Peninsula,” said Wirra Wirra Managing Director, Andrew Kay.
The designs for this $30M+ project are expected to be finalised around the New Year. The vision hopes to capture the spirit of history and authenticity that surrounds the Wirra Wirra winery, while also incorporating a theme of health and wellness.
Look out for construction work early next year and an early 2022 opening—while we know it’s a long wait, there’s plenty to keep you busy until then. For instance, you could make a trip down to the winery for one of their Flagship Wines Tours to taste just why this gorgeous McLaren Vale winery has captured the hearts (and tastebuds) of tourists and locals alike!
