Primo Estate in McLaren Vale has won the Architecture and Landscape category in South Australia’s inaugural Best of Wine Tourism Awards. The awards were held as part of Adelaide’s membership of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.


Ageing wine in the earth

The Young Gun of Wine is a national competition in Australia and as a Great Wine Capital of the World, it’s no surprise that South Australian young guns regularly dominate the annual awards.

Now in its tenth year, the coveted Young Gun of Wine Awards recognise emerging wine producers, looking for innovation, inspiration and ability to bring new ideas to the table.

The Chapel Hill Winery tourism experience is one that is about so much more than wine - it’s about history, place, community and most importantly, making memories and building relationships.

Chapel Hill Winery Cellar Door is located 10 minutes drive north of the McLaren Vale township, approximately 45 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. Tastings are available 7 days 11am-5pm.

Chapel Hill Winery is the 2018 regional winner of the ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ Award in the Architecture & Landscape category.


Here are South Australia’s top 5 most romantic wine spots to visit.

1 Fleurieu Peninsula

The Fleurieu Peninsula is a paradise for beach lovers. Ever-popular as a weekend escape, you’ll find countless holiday houses and bed and breakfasts right on the water. Take a stroll down to the beach as dawn breaks, or sprawl out on the sand as sun sets. Green hills border jagged cliffs, with ocean swells below. Only minutes away you’ll find quiet coves beckoning swimmers with calm, clear waters.

A vista of gently rolling hills, 5000 acres of shiraz vines and a wide, open sky - there isn’t a more picturesque location than this. It was, in fact, this very view which, for US natives Jim & Helen Carreker, ended a world-wide search and bore the creation of an icon - The Louise Barossa Valley.

Penfolds Magill Estate – synonymous with South Australia and world-class wine – has taken out the international Best of Wine Tourism Award for the category ‘Wine Tourism Services’.

In an industry proud of its environmental credentials, Kalleske Wines is setting the benchmark. The Barossa Valley’s largest certified organic and biodynamic grape growing and winemaking operation – and one of the oldest certified in South Australia – has just won its second major sustainability prize in less than a year.
