This place is unique and takes all the mystique out of wine. It is vey interactive with push buttons for giving aromas of various grapes. Also an extensive cabinet display of all the grape varieties and their various characteristics. Wine tasting is avaiable by an automated display which allows you to select a wine to sample and the cost is... More

The stand-out here for me was the wine-tasting set-up in the café. In one section of the room the walls were lined with bottles of wine. Usually about six per varietal. These were connected to a device behind the scenes, which would deliver a taste, a half glass or a full glass of the wine you selected. You could have... More

At the Bistro Style Restaurant you can sample wines... More

Was here 2 weeks ago and really enjoy the centre. Truly a great learning venue for wine lover, has interactive learning aids which clearly are educational on every local grape varieties which also shown the typical favours to expect i.e. sauvignon, chardonnay, cabernet and shiraz. Has a cafe that has numerous wine by glass using Enomatic machine.

We had some time one morning before heading out to the wine tasting areas around Adelaide. The building itself, which has some elements of a wine barrel with big curved columns holding the roof, is purpose-built as a wine centre. The staff were friendly and helpful. Also the huge collection of wines on display below the walkway was impressive. For... More

The venue is modern and appealing and offers many options for large and small functions as well as casual eating, drinking and wine tasting. The choice and quality of cocktail food from the nearby...

Just had lunch at the centre and couldn't have asked for better food or wine. Was very impressed by the service provided by the young staff. In an age when service, politeness and courtesy can be non-existant from the younger generation, it was good to be treated in such a courteous manner.

Located at the edge of the Botanical Gardens it's a brisk 25min walk from the centre of town. The building itself is impressive both inside and out - with its unique architecture of rammed earth, wood floorboards and steel. As I was there for a conference I probably didn't get to explore the entire centre but what I did see:... More
