National Wine Centre of Australia Tours

National Wine Centre of Australia
The National Wine Centre of Australia introduces visitors to Australian wine, with a focus on South Australia. The outer shell of the building resembles wine barrels. Inside, visitors can take a wine discovery journey or an educational class, or indulge in food, a wealth of tastings, and one of the southern hemisphere’s best cellars.

The Basics
There’s no charge to enter the National Wine Centre of Australia, explore its wine discovery exhibit, or join the daily guided tour. With more than 100 wines by the glass in the wine bar (fees apply) for either guided or independent tasting, and many thousands of bottles available for sale, this is the place to discover Australian wines. Admire the architecture on an Adelaide city tour, or explore by the glass on a wine tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Wine lovers, foodies, and architecture fanatics will appreciate the National Wine Centre of Australia.
  • With plenty of outdoor space and interactive exhibits, the National Wine Centre is one of South Australia’s more family-friendly wine experiences.
  • The National Wine Centre of Australia is fully wheelchair accessible, with accessible bathrooms and parking reserved for disabled badge holders.

How to Get There
The National Wine Centre of Australia occupies a prime position in the heart of Adelaide, next to Adelaide Botanic Gardens. There is parking, but if you want to enjoy the wines on offer, consider public transport. The free 98A and 98C city bus services stop at the top of East Terrace, about a half-mile (800-meter) walk to the center.

When to Get There
The National Wine Centre of Australia is open morning to early evening Monday to Sunday, with reduced hours on public holidays; it's closed Dec. 25, 26, Jan. 1, and Good Friday. The wine bar is open for breakfast and stays open late on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Thursday afternoons are a good time to visit as the bar stays open late but isn’t too crowded.

Wine in Australia
Vines arrived in Australia on the First Fleet that brought the nation’s first English colonists and their jailers in 1788. A century later Hunter Valley, Barossa Valley, and Yarra Valley were making wine. Despite, or perhaps because of, pioneering innovations such as boxed wine, Australian wine was not taken seriously internationally until the 1980s, when exports to Europe began to take off. As of 2018, Australia was the world’s 12th-largest wine producer.
