Food and Wine
Some things are destined to be together
Romeo and Juliet, Antony and Cleopatra, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
In South Australia, it’s simple, we love our food and wine.
Adelaide is Australia’s wine capital but wherever you go in South Australia, there’s a fine drop to savour.
There are household names like Penfolds, Yalumba, Wolf Blass and Jacob’s Creek plus countless boutique estates. We’ve got the Barossa to the north, the Adelaide Hills to the east and Coonawarra down south.
The wine capital of Australia
The spectacular National Wine Centre of Australia in Adelaide showcases the Australian wine industry. Take an interactive wine discovery tour, taste wine and enjoy á la carte food.
South Australia has 160 years of wine history. We’re putting the same time and enthusiasm into our food industry. Whatever you want to eat, innovative chefs can make it for you.
Maggie Beer is a Barossa Valley food celebrity. Visit Maggie’s Farm Shop for pâtés, sauces and preserves, plus books and DVDs.
Gouger Street is Adelaide’s premier restaurant and cafe strip. It’s also the gateway to our treasured Adelaide Central Market and Chinatown.
There’s nothing quite like the 140 year old Adelaide Central Market. It has more than 80 stalls, shops and cafés selling only the freshest produce. Go once and you’ll be hooked!
Just moments from the city centre, the producers sell directly to you at the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market at Wayville. It’s the perfect Sunday morning outing.
Adelaide is an affordable place to eat with hundreds of family-friendly cafés, restaurants and historic pubs. Quality restaurant precincts include Rundle Street, The Parade, Hutt Street, and O’Connell Street to name a few.
The finer things in life
Magill Estate is a winery just 15 minutes from the city. Try their world-famous Penfold’s Grange in their stunning gourmet restaurant, which matches seasonal food with wine.
In Adelaide, chocolate means just one thing – “Haigh’s”, Australia’s oldest family-owned chocolate manufacturer. Buy a bag of their famous chocolate frogs or exotic native flavours like lemon myrtle and quandong.
Adelaide, where food and wine meet.
