About the venue

National Wine Centre Of Australia (NWC) is Adelaide’s premier medium-sized conference and event facility offering 5-star services with in-house catering, audio-visual facilities and event management services. The Centre hosts a broad cross-section of meetings and events, including corporate functions, product launches, private parties, weddings and fundraisers. The Centre’s unique architecture, designed to represent a wine barrel, has seen it win numerous awards for its use of natural light, earthy metal and wood textures, including the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Award. Situated alongside the stunning Adelaide Botanic Gardens, the NWC is also an Adelaide tourism icon offering Australia’s largest wine-tasting experience, dining, interactive wine education, group tours and wine courses. Built in 2000 and officially opened in October 2001, the NWC’s point of difference is its spectacular geographical position, clever design, pillar-less event spaces offering a flow of natural light, and exceptional multi-award-winning catering service and flexibility. Six rooms of varying sizes enable the NWC to offer a function venue for 10 to 1000 guests. In-house event management and conference facilities, including state-of-the-art technical and audio-visual equipment provide full flexibility for any type of function. The outdoor terrace areas have views overlooking the Botanic Gardens, providing a beautiful backdrop to complement the unique event rooms. Their extensive cellar compliments their award-winning event menu featuring premium, locally sourced produce. Their knowledgeable staff match food to wine – either on consumption or in a package resulting in an event that leaves guests with a highly memorable experience. Visitors to the Centre can experience the winemaking process from the vine to the bottle through their interactive Wine Discovery Journey and complete the experience by tasting fine Australian wines or enjoying a meal from the seasonal a la carte menu at the ground floor bar. The NWC experience is perfect for everyone from the complete novice through to the wine connoisseur.

View @ National Wine Centre Of Australia. . Despite being more of an event and conference space, the small exhibit space and gallery here is informative and well curated. . Was also chuffed to find a wine tasting area with 120 labels to try.

Interesting and very well arranged, especially the wine tasting bar. However, I would appreciate rather bigger and more detailed museum-style exhibition than two rooms that are currently there.

Another fantastic place in Adelaide to visit. We did the ‘eat me’ degustation menu which was superb. Teamed with some of the most amazing wines. Our sommelier Maria was fantastic, she loves her job and it showed. We thoroughly enjoyed the 3.5 hour long lunch and service. Make sure you’re hungry because the food doesn’t stop 😊.

The self guided wine tasting is hidden gem of an experience in Adelaide, there is a huge selection and the self service system works really well. We really enjoyed the food as well and the service was lovely, personally I’d recommend skipping the tour and going straight to this.
