Check out the free self-guided, interactive Wine Discovery Journey exhibition at this very sexy wine centre (actually a research facility for the University of Adelaide, rather than a visitor centre per se). You will gain an insight into the issues winemakers contend with, and can even have your own virtual vintage rated. ‘Uncorked’ drinks every second Friday night happen at 4.30pm, or you can explore the Cellar Door and get stuck into some cleverly automated tastings (from $2.50).
