Well known for its great drops of wine, Adelaide Hills is also bursting at the seams with beautiful sights to see.
While Adelaide may be formally known as the city of churches, the southern state of Australia also boasts brilliant wine regions and spectacular vistas. Located less than an hour away from Adelaide's CBD, the Adelaide Hills region is blessed with rolling green hills and an abundance of delicious grapes.
The perfect backdrop for a wedding or your next holiday snap, Longview Vineyard is set on undulating slopes perfect for those long walks after a wine tasting.
A major tourist attraction of the Adelaide Hills and set amongst the breweries and wineries in the Hahndorf region, visitors can pick their own strawberries from endless rows of patches. Don't forget to check out the making of jam in the farm’s kitchen, too.
Pike & Joyce
Located at the heart of the Adelaide Hills, Pike & Joyce ‘On Top of the Hill’ Cellar door overlooks the estate vineyard. Boasting a five-star James Halliday Cellar Door and resturant, enjoy a crisp, cool climate wine at a wine tasting or a three-course tasting menu filled with seasonal produce reflecting the provenance of the Adelaide Hills and surrounds.
Explore the historic town of Hahndorf, which is Australia’s oldest suriving German settlement, still offering autherntic German treats from bakeries, pubs, resturants and cafes along the main street.
Barristers Block Wines
One not to be missed is the small petting zoo at Barristers Block Wines. Perfect for a family-friendly winery experience, the animal sanctuary and (very) large sandpit area boast the spot for your cute pic with furry friends. The cheese boards aren’t bad either.
