The centre was a great location for a conference, with friendly staff and the beautiful gardens on the doorstep for a quick turn at lunch break.

As others have said, the wine museum part of the equation is mostly gone but I think its well worth a visit for the ground floor/terrace cafe and wine bar. The location is lovely, by the adjacent Adelaide Botanic Gardens. The food was good with a selection of sharing plates or full main courses. The Australian wine list was very good and can be had in flights, tasting glasses, larger glasses, or by the bottle! We visited twice and tasted some lovely wines. In particular a Jacob's Creek St Hugo red blend and an aged Tyrell's Hunter Valley Semillon were excellent value for money. So if you are around that area of Adelaide perhaps you might do worse than have a bite to eat and a good glass of wine, but note that they do not open in the evening.

if you want an overview over wine production, don't go there. the exhibition part is under renovation without any date given for reopening! the cafe is just like any wine in the city. you walk away without knowing anything about the sites of wine production in Australia, the major vineyards, the different kind of wine produced, let alone having tasted any!

The reality of the place goes nowhere near meeting the tourism advertising hype for anyone interested in an experience to better understand the Australian wine industry and it's products. It's just a weddings and functions venue. Most of the displays have either been removed or allowed to fall into disrepair. Such a shame because the building itself is very attractive.
