Here's what’s open in McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast today. A great way to support local. 

Ortus Wines

Ortus Wines, meaning new beginnings, is the dream come to fruition over the span of 15 years for mother daughter duo, Julie and Paige Cooper.

Once a simple besser block machinery store, the building has been cleverly transformed into a warehouse style space with black-steel framed windows, bespoke crafted entry doors, polished concrete floors and Art Deco inspired light pendants – all oozing cool NY loft vibes.

Outside, there are large open grass areas, and shady spots under the 100 year old gums to roll out a rug and savour our handcrafted range. Our McLaren Vale range comes from our own family vineyard, including Limited Editions where as little as two barrels are made, and other regional gems selected from the best vineyards each vintage.

We look forward to welcoming you for a wine tasting at our cellar door, where you can relax inside or enjoy the views outdoors with a glass of wine and a local cheese platter designed by you.
