Luxury Driving Experience McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula
Mesmerising hues and bursts of acceleration provide a colourful distraction from normality, sweeping by vineyards, orchards and olive groves.
Drive to Kangarilla, Meadows and Bull Creek Rd.
South for Myponga, Carrickalinga and the rolling hills of Yankalilla.
An enthralling driving experience across the Fleurieu Peninsula to the Southern Ocean, and the Norfolk pines of HMAS Hobart Memorial Lookout.
Drop into Sellicks Beach and wind along Old Willunga Hill Rd to The Range, across McLaren Flat to the thrilling hairpins of Wickham Hill Rd.
The d'Arenberg Cube Restaurant
Nestled among Mourvédre vines rises a giant, seemingly floating Rubik’s Cube. An extraordinary multi-million dollar puzzle that beckons curious wine lovers to one of the most iconic cellar doors.
Part-gallery, part-cellar door, part-hatted restaurant – spread across five grand storeys of all kinds of wonderful; think Willy Wonka meets MONA on a boutique scale.
No rules apply inside the cube. The huge Rubik’s-inspired tasting/dining structure erected at d’Arenberg vineyard in McLaren Vale is both gorgeous and gregarious, at every bite and swallow. Tribal artefacts combine with winery ephemera, modern art and harlequin leather thrones.
The dégustation offers an even wilder ride, and many dishes don’t appear as they seem – grapes filled with foie gras, a savoury biscuit filled with eel purée. More mystery: what’s in a black Riedel glass? Sake, perfectly cutting through whole-baked shallot matched with a finely chopped mushroom ragoût, and wicked fried chicken pressed between wafers. There’s mischief at each step. You receive a mortar and pestle with herbs and a vial of seasoned oil to make your own salad dressing. Strips of wagyu are grilled on skull-headed skewers.
What delights is the consistent deliciousness, and the floor staff keep proceedings fun. d’Arenberg wants its own wines at the forefront but there are many options in a 10-chapter drinks menu – almost two dozen internationals by the glass and a long list of sake. It’s a luxurious trip, and most definitely not a gimmick. Relax and enjoy the ride.
The afternoon is yours to enjoy as you relax into a luxury food and wine experience that challenges convention, sampling a selection of d’Arenberg’s best drops and a few surprises.
