Wineries of the Region

The Adelaide Hills is Australia's most vibrant cool climate wine region. With over 90 wine labels and 48 cellar doors, it is acknowledged internationally for its distinctive premium wines, viticulture and stunning scenery.

The region is located in the Mount Lofty Ranges east of Adelaide. Stretching in a narrow band approximately 70km long, the highest vineyards are sited between 600-650 metres altitude in areas such as Crafers, Summertown, Piccadilly and Carey Gully.

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. The region consists of two registered sub-regions, Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley.

The exquisite wines of the Adelaide Hills are shaped by the coolness of altitude, the changing seasons, and the skill and passion of our winemakers. Nestled amongst apply and cherry orchards and rolling fields, vineyards are scattered throughout the 70km length of this varied landscape.

Experience the purity of our Sauvignon Blanc, the complexity of our Chardonnay, the mystique of our Pinot Noir and the elegance of our Shiraz. Discover grape new varieties, from Arneis to Zinfandel, and explore the infinite possibilities of terroir, seasonality and winemaking skill that the Adelaide Hills has to offer.

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.
