Forget beer gardens, we’re looking for a wine garden.
Off the bustling streets of Hahndorf lies the Adelaide Hills Wine Bar, complete with an alfresco sitting area with bocce and a host of other outdoor games.
“It’s an oasis in what is otherwise a busy street,” says James Butcher, the Adelaide Hills Wine Bar’s manager. “It’s a unique space with the beautiful wine garden out the back, which is right next to the Hahndorf Creek.”
In addition to its relaxed atmosphere, the space is also unique because the wine bar is attached to the Wolf Glass Gallery and Museum, so guests can get educated in the wine museum before they sip local offerings.
“We’ve got lots of different SA wines, and we’re always looking to keep expanding out our Adelaide Hills offering in particular,” Butcher says.
Alongside a variety of SA wines, beers and ciders, the Adelaide Hills Wine Bar also serves food in the form of tapas, platters, and stone-baked pizzas.
There are 13 pizza options, a cheese board, seafood platter, charcuterie platter, and the Hahndorf Platter, which has a hearty selection of cheeses, Hungarian salami, prosciutto, smoked duck sausage, lavash, rye bread, grissini, olives and caramelised onion relish. In terms of tapas, there’s duck and truffle paté, roasted asparagus, smoked mackerel, garlic prawn skewers and more.
The wine bar is open Monday, Thursday and Sunday 11am – 5pm, Friday until 9pm, and Saturday until 7pm. Sunday is great night to go, as there is live music in the afternoons; Adelaide-based Hawkins Band is performing on March 7th.
The wine bar is a great place for groups and can fit functions of up to 40 people.
