Wirra Wirra Vineyards is situated 3.7km from the township of McLaren Vale in the state of South Australia. Originally settled in 1838, McLaren Vale has become one of Australia's most highly regarded and accessible wine regions, just 45 minutes by car from Adelaide, the state capital.

The Wirra Wirra Cellar Door experience has much to offer for the seasoned wine connoisseur or complete novice, with all their wines available for tasting, plus a selection of limited releases that can only be found within the Wirra Wirra cellars. A quiet word in the ear of their Cellar Door staff is always worthwhile in case they have some of their more limited museum stock available.

Harry’s Deli, offers inside and outside dining areas that overlook their famous gardens and the Scrubby Rise vineyard. Featuring a simple menu of regional produce, seasonal platters and classic toasties, accompanied by a selection of wines by the glass, the cafe is the ideal pit-stop when you are touring the region. So whether it’s a quick coffee (try their Chuch Block blend), take away snack or a long lazy lunch grazing on the platter of your creation, Harry’s Deli has something to please everyone.

Named in honour of Harry, the carpenter in residence here at Wirra Wirra for so many years. Harry was a much loved McLaren Vale local, originally from Lithuania. After missing his ship to Canada where he and a few mates were set to join the Royal Canadian Mounties (after overdoing their farewell drinks the previous evening) Harry boarded the next ship departing the dock - which was bound for Australia. The intricate wood working and building features found at Wirra Wirra are a credit and lasting memory to Harry - as is the deli that bears his name.

The Wirra Wirra experience is not confined to the cellar door. Their picturesque grounds offer lush lawns, a viewing platform over the vineyards and a covered barbecue area which you are welcome to enjoy. Whether it's lazing in the sun with a regional platter from Harry’s Deli, or cooking up a storm on te barbecue hotplates, they encourage you to linger a little and unwind in the beautiful surrounds.
