The presentation was informative and interesting and a great place to start if you know very little about the wine industry in Australia.

Great late morning/lunchtime activity. The tour was OK, and I learnt a couple of new things about Aussie wines. The tasting was very good; 4 wines presented by someone who knew what she was talking about. Then we acquired an enomatic card. Access to taste 120 different wines. I chose larger portions to accompany lunch which was excellent. Highly recommended.

We have always loved visiting this place, and we met friends for lunch for the first time. It was two weeks before Christmas & the place was very busy with lots of groups & a conference. We were disappointed in the menu, which seemed unnecessarily complex and didn't offer much for non-meat eaters. I chose a salad that was mostly fried bread cubes, which was rather oily and not what I expected. Service was lovely, and our wine was excellent. We won't visit at such a busy time again and probably won't come back for a meal either.

We expected to be delighted by a range of local wines, but found the range on offer to be both underwhelming and expensive to taste.

The food from the Café however, was the best meal we had in two weeks in South Australia, with the Wattleseed bread entrée being a highlight.

We returned to the Wine Centre this Xmas after enjoying a truely awesome time in 2021. Unfortunately the experience this year was ordinary. Service was wanting and either garbage or another pungent smell wafting across the outside dining area made this lunch memorable for the wrong reasons. I am firm believer in rewarding businesses with repeat business when they deserve it. Unfortunately based today's experience we won't be back.

I was in total awe of the structure and the architecture, what a feat. The tasting experience was amazing and great value for those wanting to try a large selection. The staff were very helpful as we navigated the room of wines!!

The architecture is interesting, modeled along the idea of a wine barrel.
Do step out the back doors and take in the botanical garden!

Had a great one on one with Robert the sommelier who talked me through the history of wine in Australia, and then a couple of tastings. I got my self an enomatic card from the wine tasting area and tried a few more. Then had a charcuterie lunch with another flight of Red wine. All in all a very pleasant experience and a great way to spend Saturday afternoon. I will certainly return again when I next visit.
