Visit the wine capital of Australia
Your wine adventure starts here, with over 200 cellar doors on Adelaide’s doorstep. From Shiraz in the Barossa, to Riesling in the Clare Valley and big reds in the Coonawarra, you’ll hardly be able to wait.
Whether for a day or a weekend, it’s easy to get your journey underway! Pack up the car and grab your wine map. Pull into the gravel driveway of your favourite winery. Explore a new cellar door. There are so many to choose from.
Take a tour
Feel like taking it easy? There are some great tour companies that can chauffeur you. Enjoy the rolling scenery as it glides by. Round up your friends and take a bus or sit back in style in a limousine. Either way, you’ll be well looked after.
Practice makes perfect! From vines more than 160 years in the making, the grapes are harvested for South Australia’s most famous wines. Poured into your glass, you will taste some of Australia’s most loved and awarded wines.
Build your collection
If you need to hire a car, there are plenty of options. Be sure to get one with a big boot, because once you’re in wine country, you’ll be tempted to stock up!
Historic cellar doors
There is something special about walking through old wooden doorframes into dimly lit cellar doors. See relics of the early winemaking days. Breathe in the beautifully musty smells of wine barrels soaked with dark red wine.
Each winery, like the wine, has its own character. Ernest tones and plenty of laughs are yours for the taking.
We’ll pour more than wine into your glass. Pull up a stool or lean on a worn wooden bar. Hear old tales and new stories, amongst the charm of boutique cellar doors.
