Found this place while wondering the botanical gardens and its a place not to be missed; food and wine was excellent and so too was the interactive wine making in the museum and was just a lovely place to relax on a sunny afternoon. The architecture was also added to the atmosphere. A must on the to do list while in Adelaide

Invited here to attend an event. A great looking venue with fantastically helpful and friendly staff. The food that was provided was plentiful and enjoyable. Obviously all prepared with great care and attention. The wine selection was excellent and served promptly.

Adelaide is associated with wine, so the presence of such a center is logical, as in Bordeaux, Chianti or Rioja. It is interesting to get acquainted with the history of the formation of winemaking from scratch. An interesting device for determining the grape variety, because people can easily describe what they see, what they hear, but it is impossible to describe the touch to the end without referring to analogues. The only but crucial drawback is the price of tasting. To put it mildly, overstated. If we consider that in the Barossa valley tasting is usually free, then it is unreasonable to pay here.

This was a great place to see learn more about wine in Australia.
A couple of the halls were closed due to a function but that didn’t matter.
Then sitting down at the wine bar having an afternoon of sampling wines (paid for) was just a nice finish.
The sampling was great in that you choose your sample size, from small amount, slightly more to half a glass. By sampling just the small tasting amount got to try a fair fee of the wines.
The cheese and meat platter purchased was a great accompaniment.
