Top choice in Fleurieu Peninsula

Duck into the Farm Shop at this beautiful stone-cottage cellar door (1860) and assemble a regional tasting platter to share on the lawns, made lovelier by multiple swills of Redstone shiraz or the flagship chenin blanc. Gather at Coriole is the excellent slate-floored restaurant here (mains $30 to $40), taking a hunter-gatherer approach to lunch. Definitively McLaren Vale; book ahead.
