McLaren Vale Grape Wine and Tourism CEO Marc Allgrove said Sea and Vines is a great showcase of what McLaren Vale has to offer.

“McLaren Vale is not just a wine region; it is home to a community that is thoroughly committed to its environment, its sustainability and its premium produce and experiences,” Marc said.

“We have an extraordinary culture of passionate people who understand the varied soils, unique climate and coastal influence of this region, and so create incredible food, wine and craft beers that are truly representative of McLaren Vale.

“Combine this with a scenic coastal drive, live music, art, markets and a many more great surprises along the way, and it’s not hard to see why we are the most visited wine region in South Australia.”

Chester Osborn from d’Arenberg said Sea and Vines is not your average wine festival.

“There’s an enormous amount of things on and obviously McLaren Vale has the best views and the best wines of any region!” Chester said.

“Our ‘Delight’ event has a Bohemian Oasis theme with a three course Persian-style dinner, music from the Jay Hoad band and lots of dancing. “We’ll also have the state’s top belly dancer and a serpent dancer with an albino python – I don’t think you’d see that at any other wine festival!”
