“Great Experience”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have just visited the wine centre and recommend a visit on day when you have time to enjoy all it offers, we had lunch and we were very happy with our meals and the friendly staff.

“A fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We visited last Sunday.

The venue is great - I have actually attended a formal function there last year.

We did the educational self guided walk around and found it interesting.

I loved "creating" my own Silver Medal Shiraz!

We later did the premium wine flight offered by the Concourse Cafe and really enjoyed it.

Great venue - good concept and a nice way to learn about wines and wine making in general.

“This place could be good but overall give it a miss”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We sent our English friends there to see if they liked it as they were insistant about visiting. a few years ago we went ther and were greatly disappointed with the whole set up and guesswhat it hasn't changed. I must admit that the food and wine that is served there is of good quality but there are always too many meeting there each time we go. The parking is non existant which is probably undergoing some change. Overall this place isn't quite what it says it should be. Give it a miss

“Interesting conference venue”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Architecturally arresting but did not contain noise coming from concurrent workshop sessions effectively. Good catering, accessibility and nice facilities.

“Don't Bother or....”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

At least check out whether the exhibits are all open on the day you wish to visit. We walked over there expecting a lovely hour or so only to find a huge conference (or more than one perhaps) in full swing. We could access only the first exhibit room and the entrance of the second. All other areas were closed due to a 'private function' for the entire day. Annoying to say the least and a disappointment for sure. Lovely place but I am as confused as JAD9999. All in all, don't waste any valuable time you may have for Adelaide.
