climate The Chalk Hill Wine District in the McLaren Vale Wine Region includes wineries to the North of the township McLaren Vale along Chalk Hill, Olivers, and Warners Roads. McLaren Vale is only a half hours drive South of Adelaide and is the heart of the Australia's oldest and renowned wine regions. The charming township of McLaren Vale is at the heart of this region, with Clarendon and Reynella to the North, Kangarilla to the East, Aldinga to the West on the coast, and in the South, Sellicks Hill and Mount Compass. The flat land surrounding McLaren Vale has a Mediterranean climate with warm sunny days and mild winters. There are significant maritime influences with frequent sea breezes from the nearby Gulf of St Vincent moderating the peak summer temperatures. The nearby Mount Lofty Ranges produce cool gully winds that descend down from the hills in the late evening and early morning. There are adequate winter rainfalls (580-700mm) and relatively low humidity in summer, and few frosts. The mean January temperature is 21.7 degrees C and 1920 heat degree days. Fabulous food is the major focus of the region with the area producing a variety of fresh food crops such as almonds, organic vegetables, olives, venison, cheeses, various berries, beef, lamb, rainbow trout and marron crayfish, and olives. The Sea and Vines Festival held in June showcases the local produce with more than 50 wineries and a host of food producers offering their products for tasting in a friendly atmosphere with entertainment and displays. Some of the local wineries include: Berlingieri Wines, Brewery Hill Winery, D'Arenberg, III Associates, Kimber Wines, Maxwell Wines, Merrivale Wines, Mr Riggs Wine Company, Oliver's Taranga Vineyards, Oliverhill Winery, Stumphill Vineyard, Tapestry Wines.
