Enjoy the best of McLaren Vale !
In the 1850’s, at the Eastern End of Mc Murtrie Road the hamlet of Bethany was established. The community would gather weekly for an afternoon meal at Bethany Chapel to celebrate their neighbourhood. Picking up this sentiment the collaboration and storytelling continues with Red Poles hosting a 4 course lunch with wines from 4 progressive boutique wine brands .

Start off at Red Poles in McLaren Vale and ride through world renowned vineyards as you head towards the Willunga ranges. Power up the Tour Down Under course in reverse on Penny’s Hill into The Range and enjoy some twists and turns and on through pristine bush lands along the top of the hill before heading back down towards the coast. Every kilometre is as picturesque as the next and the descent from the hills provides you with some of the most stunning views on offer in the Fleurieu Peninsula. Within minutes you will be travelling along the esplanade of the coastline you just viewed from the top of the hills with nothing between you and the ocean except beautiful silver sands.
Time for a ‘Harley highball’! Relax with cocktail in hand and begin your 3 course lunch at Red Poles. Fantastic local produce with wines to match!
