Fresh off the plane from the old country, we enjoyed the tour and exhibition at the National Wine Centre. Planning to visit some of the wineries around Adelaide and Melbourne, so this was good homework. We failed miserably in the interactive design-your-own vintage challenge, but...More

Fantastic builidng, and wonderful conference and function facility. If wine is your focus and passion then perhaps save yourself the trip and head straight to the regions SA is famous for.

Met a few friends here and we had an absolute ball. Loved the atmosphere and the food was great. Bittles of champers were not too expensive and we loved doing a few tastings too. The staff were great and really fun to interact with.

If on your visit to Adelaide you are visiting the wine regions put this on your must do list and preferably before you visit the regions. Deciding which wineries to visit is hard but if you go here first and find wines you like then...More

In a modern building with impressive architecture we found one of the highlights of our visit to Adelaide: A very instructive and informative interactive exhibition about wine, wine history and wine making, where you can really learn about the process and what drives quality in...More

Its not the most obvious of places to situate a National Wine centre and I expect that visitor numbers weren’t quite up to original expectations which is why this is now primarily a function hall. However, the original exhibition about wine is still interesting and...More

Well! Considering it is called the ‘National’ Wine Centre of Australia, I expected a lot more. The coffee shop served great coffee but the self directed tour was a disappointment. Many of the interactive exhibits were broken. I have found out more about wine by...More

Toilets that smell worse than a Paris pissoire; lukewarm coffee; exhibits that don’t work or are broken and big party hogging the wine tasting- this is a big disappointment. For a national wine centre it doesn’t put Australia in a good light.

The National Wine Centre has been on my list for ages it was just that every time I visited Adelaide other things seemed to jump the queue and so it had languished mid-level until my sister and I decided to visit the Botanic Gardens. As...More

The centre is near the end corner of the botanical gardens. The building is huge and there are several big rooms which disappointingly seems like conference halls only filled with empty tables. There is really only one room at the top that has educational materials...More
