Food and Wine Trails
Pack your appetite
Eat and drink your way around South Australia on a food and wine trail.
It’s a great way to see the state and meet the locals. And it’s easy. Just grab a trail brochure and hit the road. The only hard part is knowing when to stop.
Cheese and wine
If you’re a cheese fiend, pick a Cheese and Wine Trail and go on a progressive picnic. There are trails in McLaren Vale, Barossa, and Adelaide Hills. Visit cellar doors, try some wine and sample matched cheeses. It’s that easy... and tasty.
If you like getting your hands dirty, pick your own cherries in the Adelaide Hills on the Cherry Trail. Local growers have produced a cherry map and invite you to visit one or all of the featured orchards. Many of the orchards grow more than cherries. You may also find figs, raspberries, apples, plums and apricots. Download the Cherry Growers Association of South Australia's cherry map now.
See the sights, admire the views and meet the locals, all while enjoying the best food and wine.
Coonawarra Wineries Walking Trail
Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia's finest wine regions and produces world class red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. There are five wineries along the Coonawarra Wineries Walking Trail, which is less than five kilometres long. If you allow 20 minutes at each winery, the trail should take approximately three hours to complete. You may wish to factor in a lunch stop at Fodder or pre-order a picnic basket from the Coonawarra Store to enjoy on the lawns at one of the wineries.
Eyre Peninsula’s Seafood Trail
For something fishy, try the Eyre Peninsula’s Seafood Trail. The Eyre Peninsula produces more than 60 per cent of South Australia's seafood. Swim with tuna, eat an oyster fresh from the ocean or enjoy Spencer Gulf king prawns while you overlook the water.
Kangaroo Island Farm Gate and Cellar Door Trail
Take the road less travelled and discover food and wine at nature's pure heart on the Kangaroo Island Farm Gate and Cellar Door Trail. This trail introduces you to producers and products at their source. It invites you to enjoy the rich fruits of Kangaroo Island producers' labours in your own time in a natural unspoilt environment.
Para Road Wine Path
If you want to combine wine tasting with walking, the Para Road Wine Path is perfect. The path follows the Para River and passes by Langmeil Winery, Peter Lehmann Wines and Stanley Lambert Wines.
Riesling Trail and Rattler Trail
Hit the Clare Valley’s Riesling Trail and Rattler Trail. Both are perfect for walking and cycling between local towns. Get serious and work up a sweat or take a stroll in the sun. Either way, you’re never far from restaurants, cafés and cellar doors. Download a Riesling Trail and Rattler Trail map now.
