Bring your camera.

This is the coolest, most Instagrammable yet most fun and laid back wine tasting in South Australia.

Picture you and your crew standing amongst the vines of McLaren Vale, high on a hill with views like a painting.

Add in a line up of exceptional wines from Aphelion Wine Co. artfully arranged on the back of a real work pickup ute.

A stunningly elegant glass in your hand and a Spring breeze in your hair.

With wines this good, it will be hard to spit but if you need to, the grass is your spittoon!

Aphelion'ss highly awarded winemaker Rob Mack is your host for this leisurely and unpretentious tasting where you can ask all the questions you have ever wanted to ask a winemaker.

No sharing either it is exclusively for one group at a time. You will have Rob'ss full attention for the duration of your tasting, usually about an hour.

Feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy after. We can sell wine by the glass for you to enjoy as you take in the view and your orders will be conveniently shipped to your door.

If there is difficult weather, such as rain or extreme heat, this tasting will be rescheduled. For groups smaller than 10 in difficult weather this tasting will be relocated to be a seated tasting at Aphelion HQ, in Willunga.

All of our tasting experiences include filtered water and the provision of spittoons (in this case, it'ss the grass!).

The tasting fee for our Back Of The Ute 'Vineyard Cellar Door' Tasting experience is $40pp, fully redeemable on the purchase of a Sun Lovers Wine Club Membership.

Groups of up to 12 most welcome by appointment.

We recommend you allow 1 hour for your tasting.

We encourage you to drink well - not to excess

There are no toilet facilities up at the vineyard so please plan accordingly to use the bathroom before or after your visit.


Please - no party busses. We're a (very) tiny business run just by Rob & Lou Mack. We love our wine and want to share it with people who love and appreciate wine too, but not to excess.
