Adelaide is known all over the world for its wine-making regions. McLaren Vale and the Barossa are only a short drive away, and even the Clare Valley is only around a two-hour drive. So with all of these fine wine regions on Adelaide's doorstep, where is Adelaide's best winery?

It really depends on what makes a good winery. You might feel that a great winery combines a scenic location with brilliant wines, and tasty local food. It could also all come down to the quality of wine that comes out of their cellars. So whatever criteria you're judging by, we want your opinion on where we'll find Adelaide's best winery.

McLaren Vale is the closest region to Adelaide, a mere 40 minute drive down the Southern Expressway. Not only is this region home to so much other fresh produce, but you'll also find some great wineries. Try Penny's Hill Winery, where you'll get a delicious meal at their Kitchen Door to enjoy with their wines. Wirra Wirra are another winery, where you can taste their wines while listening to some live music by the cosy fire. Others to try include Chapel Hill, Kay Brothers Amery Vineyards, or Paxton Vineyards, but it is really is too hard to confine them all to one list.

The Barossa Valley is quite possibly one of the most well know wine regions in Australia, and it is known throughout the world. Here you'll find the Jacob's Creek Visitor Centre, one of Australia's biggest wineries, and it is also home to Penfolds and Wolf Blass Cellar Doors. There are so many wineries in the Barossa to visit, that you are best heading here on a long weekend, and even then you won't be able to experience them all.

The Clare Valley is home to a number of wineries like Phoenix Estate, Jim Barry Wines, or Seven Hills Cellars. You could also head to the Adelaide Hills and find Leabrook Estate, Bird in Hand, and Somerled Wines.

Which of these regions houses the winery you like the most? You can swirl and sip for hours when touring through the wine regions, but surely one winery has taken your fancy over all the others. Give us your opinion, and let us know where we can find Adelaide's best winery.

I'm a big fan of Tenefeate Creek winery just outside Gawler.

They make some superlative reds and are consistent winners of trophies and awards.

Enjoy a delicious proper Italian pizza while you taste the wines, the children love it too!
