Adelaide and South Australia’s Wine Regions
Restrained, dignified, neat-casual -this is the staid self- image Adelaide has traditionally projected, a nod to the days of free colonisation without the ‘penal colony’ taint.
Day trips to the world-class Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wine regions (superb shiraz) plus the utterly photogenic Adelaide Hills – a rolling landscape of cool-climate wineries, cosy pubs and historic stone villages.
Barossa Valley Wine Region
With hot dry summers and cool, moderate winters, the Barossa is one of the world’s great wine regions – an absolute must for anyone keen on a good drop.
Adelaide Hills Wine Region
The hills make a brilliant day trip from Adelaide: hop from town to town, passing stone pubs, old cottages, olive groves and wineries along the way.
