The first grape vines were planted in the Adelaide Hills in 1839. Six years later, Australia's first wine export was shipped to England.

From this humble beginning, the Adelaide Hills are today internationally renowned and celebrated for our distinctive premium wines, together with our equally highly acclaimed food and local produce.

As one of Australia's most recognised cool climate wine regions, we have more than 60 wineries with cellar doors and tasting centres that often bring together wines with complementary local produce, creating an immersive regional experience.

Cheeses from award-winning Woodside Cheese Wrights and Udder Delights are now a trademark of the Adelaide Hills' food experience and features at most cellar doors. Learn more about food and the process and stories behind them, be hands-on at one of the Adelaide Hills cooking schools and cheese-making classes.

Driving through the Adelaide Hills also provides the opportunity to stop and handpick freshly ripening strawberries, apples and cherries. You can also indulge yourself with premium chocolates — another fast growing local industry kick started by the success of Melba's Chocolate and Confectionery Factory at Woodside. Stock up at roadside stalls, farm gates and local weekend farmers' markets featuring fresh and seasonal produce or quench your thirst with at boutique micro-breweries with their all-grain European influenced beers.

If your preference is for dining out, the Adelaide Hills has something for everyone. Whether it's fine dining, café style or pub meals, the best of our local produce is featured together with our wonderful local wines.
