I love slow travel, slow food and discovering new adventures and delicious regional food in new locations. I'm on an indulgent quest and I'd love you to follow at www.walkeatshare.wordpress.com

An hour or so south of Adelaide, on the Victor Harbor Road, in an area known as the Southern Fleurieu Wine Region you'll come across Mt Jagged Winery. Turn left from the main road and enjoy sweeping views across patchwork paddocks and vineyards stretching towards Currency Creek and the Southern Ocean.

Tod and Suzanne Warmer have created a rustic haven on the crest of a hill where they offer a range of startlingly good wines made from grapes sourced on site and from nearby vineyards.

The winery is 320 metres above sea level, enjoying a cool climate, some humidity and moderate temperate fluctuations. These climatic conditions and a good annual rainfall provide a longer ripening period for the grapes, resulting in wines of deep complexity and diverse varietal characteristics.

The cellar door was formerly a milking shed and the former character of the space is reflected in the current incantation (in a good way).

Tod and Suzanne are happy to offer information-accompanied tastings of their wines for visiting aficionados and are equally as happy to welcome those of us who just want a nice little lunch, or afternoon snack, accompanied by good wine.

You can choose to sit inside, at a rustic table, and admire the artwork and quirky decor while enjoying a glass or two, maybe even a bottle of wine.

If weather permits, you can choose a table outside with the happy chooks and friendly turkeys.

Lunch comprises produce from local artisan producers of cheese, olives, olive oil, douka, crackers, bread, pate and various seasonal fruits and condiments. Think Alexandrina Cheese, Matchett's chutneys and pÔtÚs and Nangkita olives. Add local alpaca chorizo for a burst of local flavour and you have an authentic 'Slow Food' platter. Everything you'll eat and drink here comes from a 50km radius.

The food is fresh and flavoursome, the ambience is welcoming and it goes without saying that the wine is divine. The added magic is the sense of space you'll enjoy in this special part of the world.
