This was a rather serendipitous find. Located on the eastern edge of the Botanical Gardens, this modern building is operated by the U of Adelaide. It combines nice information about grape varieties and wine producing areas of Australia with meeting facilities and a restaurant. I...More

National Wine Centre is a must visit location. I suspect if you are a wine buff this location will already be on your agenda in Adelaide. However I would like to encourage anybody who enjoys even cheapo wine to visit. I was there for a...More

Did the self guided tour. Good in theory but is outdated (a lot the exhibitions are still from 2000). Not all items work in the tour which is disappointing. Beautiful venue and the wine bar down stairs is fantastic (if a little $$$)

Great Wine. Great Food. Great Service. That is pretty much all you need to know. If you want to try a wide ranging selection of Australia’s wines (120 selections) in one location and in small (or large) quantities, this is the place. My wife and...More
