Our business lunch for 5 people at the Wine Centre cafe was lovely. The service was prompt and friendly. Most meals were close to AUD$20. I think it would be a great place for lunch after a visit to the Botanical Gardens, but I am not certain how child friendly the environment is. I chose the 3 meat sliders during... More

We went for a quick look and stayed for hours. You get a card to insert above wine for a taste and end up tasting heaps. It's a great place to visit not far from Rundle mall by foot easy walk. They do tapas and pizza but didn't try. Awesome showcase for SA wines.

The National Wine Centre is a short walk from the CBD. Along with history and information, it has a tasting centre. There is a large range of wines to try with options available in size up to a half glass with prices in line with each wine's age and type. To taste you are given a card to insert above... More

We discovered the Wine Center while on a walk from our hotel. It is not commercialized. There are a huge number of wines available for tasting and the pizza is pretty good too. The entrance is a little hard to find.

Fresh off the plane from the old country, we enjoyed the tour and exhibition at the National Wine Centre. Planning to visit some of the wineries around Adelaide and Melbourne, so this was good homework. We failed miserably in the interactive design-your-own vintage challenge, but really enjoyed the real stuff downstairs in the cafe where you can taste from a... More

This was a great place to visit. The kids loved the interactive displays upstairs. Then they were able to sit at the tables with other activities, while we were able to try some wine, that we would otherwise not have the opportunity to try. Highly recommend a visit to this place!

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

Adelaide's National Wine Centre of Australia is not just a place to learn about Ozzie Wines! Its location at the edge of Adelaide's beautiful Botanic Gardens is a perfect location to have a rest after sightseeing or just to meet with friends for a drink, a snack or a delicious lunch! At the Bistro Style Restaurant you can sample wines... More
