Sea & Vines Festival, McLaren Vale
It's the Sea & Vines Festival this weekend in the McLaren Vale. If you've not been before, it's worth going. Check out the participating wineries on www.seaandvines.com for more details.
As a tip, go to the Visitors Centre to get a Designated Drivers pack and a map.
Be warned that there is no wine tasting at the participating wineries and you will have to buy a glass at around $6 and also pay for the glass of wine too. You get to take the glass around the other wineries though. The wineries do get extremely busy and if you arrive late, you might be turned away.
We've just come back form there - it's excellent - and lots for children to do too.. animal petting, boucy castles, rides, face-painting, pony & camel rides etc etc...(you do have to buy tokens for these)
But as already said by Moosh - try and get there as early as possible, around lunch time everywhere was full and people were being turned away...
Good tip about getting the pack too - got some maps in there and lots of vouchers too. ;)
Pity the weather isn't great - but there's lots undercover!
