The Fleurieu Peninsula is now getting on board with 2 recent charging stations opening up in Goolwa, as well as participation from the the McLaren Vale Wine Region.


Traditional, family owned/operated Fox Creek Winery is also on board and have installed 2 chargers at their cellar door, in McLaren Vale. Partnering with Tesla, Fox Creek Winery is supporting the use of sustainable energy.  

In this stunning wine region, McLaren Vale is known for it's best practices in environement sustainaability.  Embracing opportuninty and supporting energy efficiency, Fox Creek Winery is the first in the region to see the potential and appeal of havign charging stations at their cellar door.
