Stopped here before hitting the wineries for info. The ladies behind the counter were very friendly and informative. They have a nice gift shop as well. They have a well run cafe and after we put some lining in our stomachs we hit the wineries.

The Visitor Centre is an excellent first pit stop in McLaren Vale. Informative and with a range of services, art, food and wine tasting also. Many brochures, winery maps, etc.

Great place to stop first on your visit to the Vale to ensure you dont miss out on anything that might be happening. Surprising place as there is a little cafe, often wine tasting, occasional markets, but always great info offered by the local volunteers
