It's a great building with multiple functions. The wine education display seems not to have been revised or updated for many years and would benefit from some fresh appraoaches

We saw The National Wine Centre on the Adelaide map and wondered what it could be, set right next to the Botanic Garden. The place surprised us! The interior structure reminds one of the ribs of a wine barrel. In the open basement level is a wine cellar with 38,000 bottles. Up a ramp there is a museum about wine... More

Provides a general overview of Australian wine making history and some basic information on the topic as a whole. The really great piece is the self-serve wine tasting area. Wines from various regions are available by the ounce, half-glass, and full glass. A great way to taste the differences of each region in one place.

Found myself with a spare hour whilst visiting Adelaide. Was introduced to a self service system which should be rolled out across the world. A fantastic array of the best wines and staff very helpful and extremely knowledgeable on all the stock. It was a pleasure to visit and a must on the tourist stop on Adelaide.

This dining experience left me wishing I could have visited here again during my stay. The food was fresh, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious! The wine was amazing, as was the waiting staff. A must visit, you won't be disappointed!

We worked up an appetite by walking around the adjacent botanical gardens before walking across to the wine centre. After a short look round the exhibits upstairs we found a nice table in the bar downstairs. The staff explained how the wine tasting system worked. You swap your credit card for an electronic card which is used to record which... More

Worth going for a visit to see the largest wine cellar you will ever see. The whole centre is informative and educational. Quite a novel way of tasting wine too. Exciting , modern design building with access to the Adelaide Botanical Gardens at the back entrance. Wine appreciation courses available. Suitable for large functions too.
