What should be great venue for a small conference, meeting or workshop, except let down badly by noise, service, and sound system disasters. Food was good, but special diets ordered didn’t show up. Disappointed.

We enjoyed a brief but informative free tour of the stunning centre at 11:30am, then went to investigate the 120 bottles of wine on offer to taste. Wow! You can have a 25ml taste (cheap or expensive depending on your choice), a half glass or...More

Could not have picked a hotter day to go walking through the Botanical Gardens of Adelaide to find this air conditioned oasis in the corner near Hackney Road. The wine was excellent & recommended by the bartender. We enjoyed a Shaw & Smith Savignon Blanc...More

We always visit the Wine Centre via the Botanic Gardens when we are in Adelaide. It is an opportunity to taste wonderful wines in a relaxed, air-conditioned atmosphere inside, or you can enjoy the weather outside. The staff are knowledgeable & accommodating.

Great location at the end of the Botanical Gardens for a step out of the heat. Although the tasting is not free it offers an interesting card system to pay per small glass of whichever wines you choose. Great choices and flavours and different bottles...More

Did the self-guided tour which was well set out and informative. Didn't have time to do a tasting which would probably have been really useful.
