McLaren Vale – nestling between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the white, sandy beaches of the Gulf of St Vincent is one
of S Australia’s oldest, most picturesque wine regions and one of the greenest with its ongoing water use efficiency
strategies and commitment to environmental sustainability.
It was here that the Lloyd family established their winery in 1968, on the predominantly terra rossa soils – soils favouring
deep coloured, well structured red wines with great capacity for ageing. They released their first Shiraz in 1970, and
now regularly win awards not just for their Shiraz but for their winery, for their olives and their hand-crafted, artisan
cheeses. A regional platter of Coriole’s olives, cheeses, freshly baked bread and new season’s olive oil in the Courtyard
are not to be missed when visiting the winery!
