Where We Are
Hastwell and Lightfoot winery is situated in the pristine coastal region of McLaren Vale, less than an hour’s drive from Adelaide’s city center. The eastern side of the production facility is adjacent to the Mount Lofty Ranges and the western side faces the Indian Ocean. It is a picturesque region with undulating hills and beautiful ocean panoramas and scenery. However, it is the cool coastal climate that lends to the uniqueness of the region's wines. The most notable is McLaren Vale Shiraz with light teasing aromas and flavours of mocha, dark chocolate, black plum and blackberries a true sensory delight.
Hastwell and Lightfoot Winery is situated in the easternmost part of McLaren Vale, therefore, lending itself to the most ideal climate. It is close to the hills and as a result is privy to the deep moist soils of the region. Such soils are mostly composed of sandy, calcareous red clay which contributes to the distinctive rich full wine grapes grown here, this is why McLaren Vale wines stand out.
