Adelaide Hills Wine Region

Discover the Adelaide Hills. There are more than 40 cellar doors, hidden amongst vineyards and fruit orchards. The cool climate and good rainfall makes it perfect for producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Relax by the open fireplace or outside on the deck at Petaluma’s Bridgewater Mill. Try a pre luncheon tasting or wine while you dine in the restaurant.
