Southern Fleurieu Wine Region

Great coastal views and lush landscapes await you in the Southern Fleurieu wine region, where the first vines were planted in the late 1800s however official regional status wasn’t granted until 2001.

Covering the southern and central areas of the peninsula, where wineries sprung up in the wake of great success with Viniculture in McLaren Vale. Sea, vines, artists and whales, the region is experiencing extensive vineyard growth to varieties including Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Grenache and Shiraz.

For great wines, we can visit cellar doors at Victor Harbor Winery, Twin Bays at Yankalilla, Trafford Hill Winery at Normanville and Mt Jagged Wines south of Mount Compass.

Granite Island

Granite Island is situated off Victor Harbor in South Australia and connects to the mainland by a causeway. The entire island is controlled by National Parks and Wildlife Service, however the flat northern shore is leased for development. The result is a unique joint management arrangement. A Friends of Granite Island group is being developed to allow community involvement on a volunteer basis.

Granite Island has historical and cultural significance for the Ngarrindjeri people and is included in the Dreaming legend of Ngurunderi. It also has historical and heritage value for European people.

Current facilities include a cafe, kiosk, souvenir shop, penguin centre and public toilets. A horse drawn tram controlled by the District Council of Victor Harbor operates daily.

Granite Island is home to a colony of approximately 150 little penguins (Eudyptula minor) and guided tours operate each evening at dusk.

“From the Meet and Greet where David asked us about the wines we normally drink, to the scenic tour and the divine wines we tried, it was the best day of our entire holiday. David is a wonderful and fun character that went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying both the wines but also the entire experience. Have recommended him to friends and will tour with him again when we come back to Adelaide. Thanks Mate!”

A fantastic private wine tour run by David. I can’t rave enough about David and he’s ‘magic van’ what we called his very well equipped van and the tour. David listened to what we wanted to do and drink and tailored the day around us. Lunch was included in the bill. We couldn’t believe how quickly the day went and were really happy with the vineyards we visited. David was knowledgeable and fun!”
