What an informative site with an opportunity for wine tasting. Much better than most of the wineries we visited in terms of selection and quality of information. Having something like this in the busy city of Adelaide is a very smart move.

Saturday morning breakfast at the wine centre on a fine day is a refreshing experience. We had a table outside overlooking the botanic gardens. The food was interesting and enjoyable, staff were friendly and helpful and there is good parking.
