2019 
This year the All French Car Day is moving to new pastures and we will be heading to the beautiful surrounds of McLaren Vale.  The day will be held at the McLaren Vale visitor centre on Main Road McLaren Vale.

This site offers displays of French Culture, Live Music & French Style Food. There could even be French Wines available and as this is not a dry zone, we will be able to have a truly French Experience. BYO lunch is always an option too.

The Cafe will look after us by providing:

  • Coffee & French themed cakes etc. for morning tea as cars arrive
  • French themed lunch & cheese platters for those who’d prefer not to have a picnic

Vale Cru will have their normal cellar door operations in progress – 5 small batch wineries. Free tastings of the wine and then available by the glass or bottle and can be consumed anywhere on the premises. Beer and soft drink available at the café.

This year we are going to give a prize to the Best Dressed Couple in French attire. So, clean out the cobwebs and impress the judges with your sartorial elegance.

We are also introducing two new categories, by dividing the modern group into two and adding the Concours d’Elegance.

On behalf of the organising committee we hope to see you and your clubs members and friends there on the day!

Run to McLaren Vale this Sunday

All fellow Citroen enthusiasts here is the run sheet for our day on Sunday.

For those of us who live in the suburbs we are going to form our convey from the Domayne Car Park at 919-929 Marion Rd, Marion around 9.30 for a get away at 9.45. From here we will travel via the Southern Express way to the McLaren Vale Visitor centre. After an hour wandering around the Vale Crue area getting to know where the All French Car Day will be held we will motor off to Steve & Sadie’s winery just down the road.

Here we will have a tour of the winery and settle down to a BYO lunch picnic style or we can fire up the BBQ. Also bring a chair. The winery known as WISTMOSA and well known supporter of the AFCD is owned by Steve & Sadie Gomer (the proud owners of the beautiful Green Peugeot 504) The venue is just a winery and there is no cellar door sales.
