“For a tour of SA wines without leaving the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This modern designed building houses a place to taste and learn about SA wines as well as a very fine small restaurant that overlooks the Botanic Gardens. If you don't have time to tour any of the SA wine regions this is a great alternative.

“DIY tours for free, then excellent tasting at a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Really liked the fact you just go in (free) and make what you can of the place. Much better than the hassle of getting ferried around. I then enjoyed doing the fine wine and intro wine tasters with my wife, and will probably sign up for a wine appreciation course at some point. Great spot, especially if you want to get to know wine and intend to live in Australia
