TIXSTAR in partnership with Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia allows you to discover & book your ultimate winery experience in the Adelaide Hills from wine tastings to guided estate tours & more all in one place.
The exquisite wines of the Adelaide Hills are shaped by its cool climate and altitude, the changing seasons, and the skill and passion of the winemakers.
The Adelaide Hills wine region is known for its elegant cool climate wines. Located in the Mount Lofty Ranges 20 minutes east of Adelaide, the region is Australia’s largest geographical wine region, and one of the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography.
The region’s coolest areas are suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties and produce renowned sparkling and table wines. In warmer areas Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris are successful.
Of the 90 Adelaide Hills wineries, almost 50 have cellar doors offering everything from wine tasting and sales to winery tours, food and wine matching, master classes, comparative tastings, and more.
Tour this Australian wine region to experience its spectacular combination of winding roads, quaint villages, apple and cherry orchards, and roadside produce. Vineyards extend the length of this 70km-long region of varied landscapes.
Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide and only 15 minutes from the CBD, Penfolds Magill Estate is the original home of Penfolds wines and of Australia’s most prized wine, the famous Grange.
Join the wine education team for a tasting of Penfolds’ famous labels, see the vineyard where the Grange story started, and dine on South Australian produce in the award-winning restaurant.
Explore the heritage-listed winery on a tour and see the underground tunnels, the heritage-listed bluestone cellars and Still House, as well as Grange cottage - the original home of Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold.
The Lane Vineyard personifies rural Australia yet it is a mere stone’s throw from Adelaide in South Australia. Hidden in the Adelaide Hills, just 3kms from the historic village of Hahndorf, and just 20 minutes from Adelaide CBD you can quickly be a world away.
The Lane is a vineyard with a state-of-the-art winery, restaurant and cellar door and is home to the Edwards family who grow every berry and make every drop to bring the beauty of their vineyard into your glass of wine.
This has meant focusing on varieties that thrive on ancient gravelly soils 400 meters above sea level, being patient with the long slow ripening period of the Adelaide Hills and adapting to a regime of minimal intervention in the vineyard and winery.
