Visit the wine capital of Australia
Wherever you go in South Australia, you will rarely be far away from a wine region. Many wineries have cellar doors open for tastings. There are more than 200 cellars doors, right on Adelaide’s doorstep, from Shiraz in the Barossa, to Riesling in the Clare Valley and big reds in the Coonawarra.
A host of self-drive wine and food trails will help you plan or book one of the many tour operators offering day or extended tours around South Australia’s wine regions.

Historic cellar doors
There is something special about walking through old wooden doorframes into dimly lit cellar doors. See relics of the early winemaking days. Breathe in the beautifully musty smells of wine barrels stained with decades of dark red wine. See how many flavours you can guess while you taste.
Meet the winemaker
Boutique wineries are often family owned. It’s not uncommon to meet the winemaker and get the history of the wines you are enjoying. Each winery, like the wine, has its own character.
We’ll pour more than wine into your glass. Pull up a stool or lean against a worn wooden bar. Hear old tales and new stories, amongst the charm of boutique cellar doors.

More than great wines
Many cellar doors offer food. It doesn’t get much better. Taste dishes that are matched to your wine selection by the winemaker.
