When planning a trip to McLaren Vale a visit to the Shingleback Tasting Room should be on every agenda. Located at the entrance to the McLaren Vale township, our Tasting Room is housed in what was the original barn of Aldersey Farm. Built in the late 1800's and lovingly restored in 2003, warm in winter and cool in summer, we are sure that your visit to our Tasting Room will be a welcoming, friendly and memorable part of your McLaren Vale experience. As well as having the opportunity to sample and purchase our collection of award-winning wines, including Tasting Room only special releases, you will be able to view artworks by talented local artists. No matter what style of wine you are looking for, the friendly and knowledgeable team will have it or be able to advise where to find it. We look forward to welcoming you to the Shingleback Tasting Room.

Stopped in at the cellar door for a tasting on a Monday morning and as we were the only people there, we got lots of attention. We were especially impressed by the shiraz and bought a magnum! Highly recommended.

We had a very nice taste of the various wines here, all with a nice story. We didn't even have to pay for the more expensive wine. Also had a good chat with al the staff.
