South Australia’s best winery experiences

Spring is the perfect time to experience South Australia’s best wineries!

When it comes to unique winery experiences, South Australia goes above and beyond. Experience why we are known as the wine capital of Australia!

Below are some recommendations of unique winery experiences. If you are after more assistance in planning your trip or for more information contact our dedicated concierge team today.


Just 15 minutes from our front doors, you will find Penfolds Magill Estate. It is the birthplace of one of the most famous South Australian wines the Penfolds Grange! Penfolds Magill Estate is home to a beautiful, heritage-listed winery and a labyrinth of underground tunnels and bluestone cellars. There is also a fine dining restaurant and kitchen that offer spectacular views of Penfolds first vineyard.

Rather than just undertaking the normal cellar door experience why not enquire about their Penfolds Iconic Experience. Here you will learn all about the estate’s history before enjoying a structured tasting followed by a three course lunch matched with Penfolds wines.


You will find The Lane Vineyard, among the rolling vista of the Adelaide Hills. The Lane is a state-of-the-art winery, restaurant and cellar door, just over half an hour’s drive from Adelaide’s CBD.

If you are a lover of cheese and wine, whilst in the Adelaide Hills you should experience The Lane’s cheese-making masterclass! They have partnered with award-winning Woodside Cheese Wrights to bring you a step by step masterclass! Hosted by one of the WCW cheesemakers where you will be taken on an immersive discovery on what makes a fantastic cheese! As part of the experience you will also indulge in a tutored cheese and wine flight – taking in our seven most revered wines, matched to Woodside’s best including our very own wine washed cheese.


The palm tree lined road leading up to Seppeltsfield is an icon in itself! Dating back to 1851, this Barossa winery is a true Australian icon and famous for its Centennial Collection: an unbroken lineage of Tawny, spanning every vintage from 1878 to today.

When in the Barossa, try your own birth-year Tawny, directly from the barrel, guided by a Seppeltsfield wine educator in the beautiful Centennial Cellar. Spend the afternoon immersed in history, sipping wine as old (or young) as you are!
