An interesting place

Although the visiting area is quite small, the exhibits are interesting and interactive. The selection of wines is also good.

South Australia is the heartland of wine production in Australia. The wine centre is a showcase of SA and Australian wine. It's very impressive and well worth a visit. Beautifully laid out and with a very significant cellar. Highly recommended.

As interstate visitors we decided to check it out and we weren't disappointed. The building itself is quite amazing and the information provided is interesting. The staff are friendly and we enjoyed a very nice lunch and coffee. Seating is indoor or outdoor. Wine is available to buy either as a taste, by the glass or a bottle. Get a... More

We wandered in here from the Botanic Garden, but didn't think it was worth it. Small museum upstairs and looked like a good venue for wine tasting or for a conference but not really worth it for the casual tourist

This may have been an unlucky evening but I´d never thought this was something I´d experience in an Australian venue. We were greeted with "What are you boys doing here?" Hardly a decent welcome to a woman and a man both over 40. And when we asked for the tasting room the next remark was on the lines that we... More

Went for dinner and wine tasting on a Friday evening. Huge range of interesting wines available to taste without the cellar door feeling of obligation to buy. Food was outstanding and matched by the service. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this place. We went to Adelaide and then to Barossa wine region, so this helped us narrow down which wineries we wanted to try

Strange location in the Botanical Gardens so we "fell upon it" and what a delight! Very good and unusual introduction into Australian Wines and you can buy nibbles to go with it.

We went for a walk in the Botanic Gardens which were close to our hotel and came upon the National Wine Centre. What a bonus! There is a small shop a deli serving tasting platters and a large selection of wines to sample. The system is interesting, you get a card, very like a credit card which then records what... More
