The locals have known for years how good McLaren Vale Grenache wines are and James Halliday agrees. The Wine if the Year for 2020 is Yangarra’s High Sands Grenache and was awarded an incredible 99 points. Congratulations to the team at Yangarra! https://www.winecompanion.com.au/resources/awards/2020-winners/wine-of-the-year
If you stay at Peppermint Farm Cottage, make sure you visit the Pertaringa and K1 cellar doors. They are both part of Wines by Geoff Hardy, the Winestate Magazine Winery of the Year. Pertaringa is just around the corner and K1 is only a 15 minute drive and you will be blown away by the beauty of this location.

The 2013 Harvest Festival is on Sat, 12 Jan 2013 from 10:00 AM – 07:00 PM in the relaxed atmosphere of the McLaren Vale Oval. An avenue of brilliantly coloured flags will lead to a boulevard of stalls offering outstanding regional fare. The combination of food, wine, music and a good crowd vibe in an outdoor setting will come together to make this a memorable day.
This is a family event with a fantastic range of activities to keep the kids happy including face painting, crafts, pizza making and pony rides. The adults can see cooking demonstrations, one featuring Simon Bryant of Cook and The Chef fame, and join in cheese, olive oil, beer and of course wine masterclasses.
The day extends into the evening with a great line-up of bands performing in an open air concert. Admission is free!
Just a reminder to our guests. You qualify for a 10% discount off the room rate if you book a return visit that includes any weekend nights.
