Adelaide Hills 

Wine Tasting

You can’t visit a world-renowned wine region without stopping in at an award-winning winery or two. Cruise among the vineyards and enjoy tastings at one of the wonderful wineries in the Adelaide Hills. We love Bird in Hand Winery for its delicious sparkling pinot and collection of artwork dotted around the winery gardens.

Mayfair Hotel 

Celebrate your love in style with one of The Mayfair’s two dining experiences this Valentine’s Day. Visit their latest bistro The Den and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with a gin cocktail on arrival, accompanied by a three course meal that include dishes such as Crispy skinned Mulloway and Kingfish Sashimi. If you really wanted to treat yourself, opt for a sit-down meal at The Mayflower, where guests will enjoy a glass of G.H. Mumm on arrival, a luxe three-course meal and take home chocolates to enjoy later.

Bar Hopping

The small bar scene in Adelaide is one of the citys’ biggest attractions. Take a stroll along Peel St and Leigh St for a cocktail or two at one of the many bars, wander around Rundle St and head to Ebenezer Place or discover the great drinking holes along Waymouth St. We love Maybe Mae on Peel St for its cosy atmosphere.

Rigoni’s Bistro 

You’ll be spoilt for choice with Rigoni’s Valentine’s Day package. With a choice of  a two course meal for $75 or three courses for $90, you and your special someone can indulge in a drink upon arrival, and a rose for the lady, canapes, entree, main, side dishes and a chocolate dessert platter with tea and coffee to finish.
