The best wineries in the Adelaide Hills.

It’s really no surprise that Adelaide Hills does wine well. The region’s cool altitude, it’s distinct seasons and articulate winemakers encourages great wine. And of course, there’s the sweeping views and award-winning cuisine, that are only made better with a glass in hand.

Wine Australia has coined our region ‘the centre for the country’s wine’s cool climate’. Oh, and ‘distinctively cool’ and ‘cutting edge.’ What’s cooler? This is your home.

Wineries & cellar doors, big & small.

This little slice of grape-growing heaven is rumoured to be occupied by ‘the most eccentric, boundary-pushing winemakers in Australia.’ Take a Sunday drive to Ochota Barrels, BK Wines, and Gentle Folk to see for yourself. Even the New York Times have reported on our local wine counterculture, making mention of the Basket Range.

There’s ArtWine in Woodside, the famous Shaw + Smith in Balhannah, Verdun’s Sidewood Estate, and the modern Lane Vineyard in Hahndorf. Howard Vineyard is a favourite in Nairne, CRFT Wines in worth a visit in Carey Gully, as is Longview Vineyard in Macclesfield.

Tie your winery visit with an upcoming event.

Do you love paella? On the October long weekend, head to Longview Vineyard for Paella Public Spring Edition. Every Friday night at Cobb’s Hill Estate, there’s a ‘Wine and Chill’ event. Revel in the ambience, premium wines and craft beers, and local food. 

Wine in the Adelaide Hills: Young, spirited & incentive.

While still a young region in comparison to its historic neighbours (the Barossa), the experimental Adelaide Hills is producing emerging varieties that are turning heads… locally and globally. If you enjoy Pinot Noir, Savvy B, local produce and creative spirits, packaged in a warm, community-loving experience, spend your weekend at one of these Adelaide Hills wineries.

We can’t forget the classics. Bird In Hand (and it’s big extension announcement), Penfolds Magill Estate, and Golding Wines.

Property experts who live & breathe the Hills (and drink the wine).

You might just see the First National Nitschke family there, too. And as always, for all-things property related, call us on 8391 5004.
