The Almond Train has been McLaren Vale's one stop shop for the last 30 years showcasing the best gourmet foods the region has to offer.....and yes, it is based in an old 1920s railway carriage.
Most South Australians would recognise the name FruChocs as being one of the icons of the state, a chocolate coated apricot and peach ball which Robern Menz started producing in 1948 due to a glut of Riverland fruit at the time. The ever popular confectionery is just one of their large range of products you can find in their FruChocs shop today.

The beautifully situated K1 cellar door overlooks the lake and vineyard, and has been recognised as one of Australia's Top 10 Cellar Door Experiences by leading wine industry publication, Wine Business Magazine.
Lets just say that Geoff Hardy found the perfect location for producing cool climate grapes in the Adelaide Hills when in 1987 he established a vineyard in the Kuitpo region. Being the first commercial planting of vines in the region, he decided upon the name of K1.
Enjoy a taste in the lake side cellar door today.
Beerenberg Farm Shop
Travelling further north into the Adelaide Hills we arrive at the Beerenberg Family Farm, owned by Paech Family whose ancestors first started farming the land in 1839. They arrived as part of the group of German settlers who started the township of Hahndorf, which makes sense when you discovery the meaning of the word Beerenberg is German for 'Berry Hill', the name that has been adopted since 1971.
Enjoy exploring the Farm Shop which is full of locally grown jams, chutneys, gourmet relishes and sauces and we can't not include, strawberries!
Travel through the village of Hahndorf and escape into the rolling hills of the Onkaparinga Valley. The next winery of Nepenthe gives guests panoramic views of the Hills, looking over their estate grown vineyards towards the summit of Mount Lofty.
Established in 1994, Nepenthe was driven by the vision to become one of the region's benchmark wineries, known for producing premium wines that showcase the unique nature of their home. Enjoy a tasting of their diverse range of wines that utilise fruit grown at different sites within the region.
