Australia: Adelaide Hills Wineries in McLaren Vale

Hugh Hamilton Winery
Are we still in Adelaide?! YES, YES WE ARE. And it's still magical.

A brief distance outside of Adelaide is the Adelaide Hills wine region. My family and I went to McLaren Vale, specifically:
- Hugh Hamilton: a modern glass encircled shop set in the middle of fields of grapes
- Samuel Gorge: a small cottage winery with picnic blankets on the grass and large vats of drying grapes.
- Fox Creek: another cottage winery set in the middle of a quaint garden
- S.C. Pannell: a modern venue with large patio and sweeping views of the surrounding hillsides

The wine-tastings are free and the bottles are all reasonably priced. It's like Napa Valley before all the hype!! We bought around 6 bottles, but they were all consumed by the time we left a week later!

After all the wine, we headed to Victor Harbor where a veil of fog had descended upon the town. Pretty spooky!
