Devour the best of the South


When it comes to food and drink, South Australia truly is the land of legends. From culture-rich Adelaide to the lush Adelaide Hills; the bountiful Barossa to the Eyre Peninsula; our state has been named a Great Wine Capital of the World and is home to an all-star cast of world-famous chefs, winemakers and producers. Adelaide is a culinary playground with a smorgasbord of cuisines on offer. Steeped in history and drenched in class, wash it all down at booming city bars, regional distilleries, cellar doors and wineries.

Penfolds has since grown into Australia’s most famous wine and its home, Magill Estate, has evolved into a truly unique venue.
