This places showcases the best of SA Wine with interactive displays and the tour finshes with the oppertunity to do some winetasting . WE sat in the garden which is actually almost part of the botanical gardens and enjoyed some fine wine . Well worth a visit and not the cellar door but the place is done well

Attended for a wedding...just superb. Set in a stunning area - wines and the history of same in SA is worth the visit alone. [The actual visit date was 2010 but drop down menu ends at May 2014.]

This facility is an amazing place to visit if you would enjoy tasting wines from Australia. Firstly, the ambience is excellent as you have the choice of sitting in a well appointed tasting room or sitting outside in the garden patio. Secondly, the variety of wines is huge. Each of the wines are available in a sampling size, one half... More

I've been here to a couple of conference events and it's a nice venue for that, especially if you can get outside during breaks. But while the exhibit areas are interesting, and kids find the "smell" area good fun, unless you are only in Adelaide for a day and want an overview of all our wines and areas, then you'll... More

I was pretty excited about going to the National Wine Centre as I'd heard they had excellent displays and heaps of wines to taste. The displays were definitely a bit of a let down, what was there was interesting but the 'interactive' parts were pretty minimal. We probably went through it in about 10 minutes. The wine tasting was great... More

We had high expectations that the National Wine Centre of Australia would be a memorable place to visit. It is located in the popular North Terrace precinct and adjoins the Botanical Gardens. The building is impressive and when you enter your expectations increase. However, we found the exhibits generally average except for the interactive exhibit where you can make a... More

Was here for a conference - excellent venue. They have loads of wines to taste, with variable amounts per glass. The staff will help you do this, or you may be able to do it on your own with a credit card. Something like 120 wines to choose from.

Went with my tennis buddies. We had tasting plates for our meal so that we could utilise the excellent wine tasting facility. We each had a prepaid card and could try any of the wines on tasting which are under a sealed system so that they do not get oxidised. A great way to try quality wines from across Australia.

National Wine Centre of Australia is a very good museum in Adelaide located close the Botanic Gardens. If you enjoy tasting wine and you are in the south-center of Australia, definitely you have to come here. The museum is good and you can learn some things in relation to the wine and phylloxera and you can know what kind of... More
