The Ekhidna Winery is one of my favourite wineries in the Mclaren vale region to cover a wedding at. It’s competitive pricing and wonderful surrounds make for a delightful mix for prospective bridal couples. The cellar door is surrounded by rolling hills of vineyards and beautiful Australian trees that glow wonderfully in the right sunlight.
Right next door is a winery-operated bed and breakfast which is very convenient for the bridal party preparation before the ceremony, while guests are entertained on site with large grassy areas suitable for outdoor games and decorations like love signs and the like.
For photo opportunities, there’s the obvious choice of using the vineyards that slope wonderfully int he direction of the setting sun, but there is also the wonderful gum trees surrounding the bend and breakfast house. Then there’s also the Mclaren Vale town center nearby, and the beach and Kuitpo forest a short drive away.
