Reinstate the winery signs at the entrance to McLaren Vale. Give the wine region the status it deserves.

What happened to the winery signs that used to be at the entrance of McLaren Vale? Does beauty and aesthetics have a part of play in promoting regional tourism?

In 2013 construction of the McLaren Vale overpass meant the removal of some of the McLaren Vale entrance signs. In the interest of fairness McLaren Vale Grape Wine and Tourism removed all of the signs.

Negotiations between private landholders, the City of Onkaparinga and McLaren Vale Grape Wine and Tourism were unable to find a suitable location to reinstate these signs. It was thought too hard.

These signs had been a feature of McLaren Vale for a generation... Signs have signalled the entrance to the town for as long as I can remember (1980's). These signs were paid for by local businesses - rate and levy payers.

Surely a solution can be found?

Lets work together to reinstate the winery signs at the entrance to McLaren Vale. Give the wine region the status it deserves.

Sign this petition for negotiations to begin for a fitting entry statement that recognises our local businesses.
