Not a lot to it. Good if you were having a function. Wine tasting in the cafe is great, but needs to be expanded.
Arrived early. Stood outside for too long. Great food and experience. 1 star removed for keeping us outside for a bit too long
Excellent venue for all community needs. Great first Fri? Celebrations with live music & best food and wine
I’d been at this centre for a conference. The facility is very good for holding events and programs. The centre has so many rooms for setting up multiple information sessions subsequently. There are areas for recreation and wine tasting too.
Attended a wedding function. Attractive outdoor settings. Staff in attendance were attentive, cordial and professional. The foods served were tasty and delicious. Sampled sushi, lamb skewers, arachini balls for nibbles....to die for, then fillet steak in jus, and crispy skin pork belly. They cater for non drinkers as well as drinking customers. Highly recommend.
Omg, loved it. Glad I wasn't driving. The food we had was superb and the wines I tried were fantastic. Walked out with half a dozen. Will be going back again.
If you are already into making wines, this is a must visit. Interesting otherwise too. Good to learn about wines and raw materials. Tasting is good but very pricey. It is better than getting stuck with one big bottle as you may be able to choose from around hundred wines for tasting.
Really enjoyed my trip round the national wine centre. Spectacular open wine cellar. Informative and unique learning experience. Fantastic opportunity to taste a myriad of wines that you might not normally buy a bottle of. Didn't try the food but it looked really tasty.
Would imagine it's great for events as it's a beautiful building but I had not realised there's not much to see here! Signage was quite poor and the staff did not bother to ask when they saw me wandering around. When I did flag down someone though he was very friendly and helpful. There's a small 'exhibit' upstairs that's tucked away and forgotten. The content actually was decent - the wine making journey and explaining the different processes and types of grapes. It would be great if they highlighted this more as an attraction! For now, unless you're here for a specific event, I wouldn't bother.
Bit of fun. VERY expensive. $2.90 per 25mL taste is a bit steep. Fun to try a large variety of wines, if you're willing to burn a bit of money. Could maybe have a bit more info about the wines available for tasting...
A bit of history in an attractive modern building. Chance to sample dozens of Kiwi wines--although we were not overly impressed by any (including the Penfold).
Very friendly group of people. Great selection of food and wine. We've been there a few times and it's always been great!
My family attended a wedding at the National Wine Centre on the 1st October 2017. The experience of the customer service and food was of the highest standard. When we arrived the Security guard noticed my father-in-law was struggling to walk up the ramp. He explained to my husband where to park to make it easier when we left. His name was Graham (I think) and was an absolute gentleman. The waitress who was looking after our table was absolutely wonderful, her name was Gabrielle and she made sure we weren't without drinks all night, had a great sense of humour whilst conducting herself in a very professional manner. The food was absolutely delicious and was served hot. Our compliments go out to the chefs and other staff who added to an already amazing night. I cannot speak highly enough of our experience and would highly recommend having a function there. Thank you National Wine Centre for your excellent service and going over and above the call of duty.

The wine centre has displays where one can smell different types of wine. However, some didn't work. The lighting in some of the exhibition areas was dark and a few interactive displays didn't work. I suggest not spending too much time in the exhibition areas and spend more time sampling wine at the wine bar. Most samplings were $2.5 AUD.
