The idea to build the d’Arenberg Cube came to Chester Osborn in 2003. 
Inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking, Chester created the idea of a cube-shaped building. 

Each of the five levels have been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses, including features such as a wine sensory room, a virtual fermenter, a 360degree video room, and many other tactile experiences.

The beginnings of McLaren Vale wine.

shiraz - grenache - Mataro - cabernet

John Reynell and Thomas Hardy planted grape vines in 1838 and the Seaview and Hardy wineries were in operation as early as 1850.

At that time, McLaren Vale wineries made heavy, dry table wines in the style required by the bulk wine merchants and exporters of the 19th century. By the turn of the 20th century there was a shift towards making fortified wines.

Between 1920 and 1930, exports trebled and finally, after World War II, local sales increased. In the 1950s, several McLaren Vale wineries began bottling small parcels of selected wines and established cellar door tastings and sales.

In the same period, many Italian migrants settled in McLaren Vale and introduced olive and olive oil production. More recently, the production of almonds, cheese, milk and cream have added to the rich food tapestry of our region.

It was not until the 1970s that table wine grew in popularity and within the same decade, over 25 new wineries were established in our region which specialised in the production of distinctive Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache.

Today, McLaren Vale is host to more than 190 producers, including 80 cellar doors. Our region’s wines and their makers continue to receive awards and major trophies at the world’s most prestigious wine shows. Tour McLaren Vale.
