The land of the Kaurna People, Traditional Owners of the Adelaide Hills region. 

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.


Vines were first planted in the Adelaide Hills in 1839. From the 1840s until the end of the century many high quality wines were grown by a large number of grape growers. For various reasons viticulture and winemaking almost ceased until a revival took place in the 1970s.
