Murray River Food and Wine
Wines and spirits
Almost a third of Australia’s wine grape production happens here in the Riverland. Believe it or not, the Riverland is home to the Southern Hemisphere's biggest winery and distillery, Berri Estates. Visit the cellar door to taste a wide variety of award-winning wines.
Kingston Estate, Mallee Estate, Burk Salter and 919 Wines all make great wines. Close to Murray Bridge, try Willow Point wines. Try a nip of brandy at the historic Angove Family Winemakers in Renmark, next door to the award-winning Nine Vines Rose.
History and heritage
In a nod to the region's history, Torambre Nissen Hut winery has built a domed cellar door in the shape of a refurbished 1940s Nissen Hut (half-cylinder building).
Combine great, local wine with a great, local view at the Banrock Wines and Wetland Centre. Overlooking the rejuvenated wetlands, take in scenic walking trails, story centres and bird hides plus delicious food.
Fine foods and produce
The Murray River region is bursting with great places to eat. Choose from friendly local pubs, small riverbank cafés, tasty restaurants and even houseboats. Inland, there are historic houses, juice bars or fun, rustic venues to satisfy your appetite.
Many local eateries pride themselves on highlighting local produce. Why wouldn’t they? Towns near the Murray River are responsible for 95 per cent of South Australia's citrus, stone fruit and almonds. Just drive along and you'll see roadside stalls offering tempting delicacies and fresh fruit.
Things get a bit nutty on the Sturt Highway near Renmark. The Almondco Almond Hut features Australia’s biggest range of almond-based products.
