My and my new wife are going to both barossa and mclaren vale in december. I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE any info/recommendations about wineries while we are down there from people who have been there and have some good two cents to give.
Things that I am interested in...higher end reds (sorry to all the white lovers but I dont care for them) that are difficult to find in the US or not available at all. Also, would hope the cellar doors themselves are fun to be at with attractive grounds and good people. I am interested in either boutique OR larger cellar doors but not too commercial (as these are obviously found all over the US).
Will NOT be able to go to all these in Barossa but rough list so far is as follows..
Again, cant go to all but starting list for mclaren is....

I have been doing my own research but what better place to get first hand info than from people who have been to these places. All you out there on these boards....I value your opinions and hope you can help!
I unfortunately only have 4 days total...and havent decided whether to do 2 days in each area or do 3 in barossa and just one in mclaren. Also, through the wineries own websites, I know many of the above have open cellar doors but some dont say, so if you know that as well (open to public, need to have appt, or just plain dont allow us at the winery) that would be great to know.
Again, thank you for your help and recommendations!!
