One of the best reasons to visit Adelaide is the easy access to top wines in the State as well as Australia. The National Wine Centre of Australia showcases a selection of wines from top vineyards in the Barossa, McLaren Vale, Kangaroo Island, Great Western, Padthaway, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley on selected Friday evenings. Best of all, entry is FREE.

Entitled 'Uncorked', this series of informal and interactive wine appreciation evenings features a different winery in South Australia each Friday fortnight. You can learn more about wines and sample wines from various price points including the newest releases and cellar door only. It might be a vintage you're already familiar with or something new. There is no reservations required so just simply turn up at 4.30pm.

Your Comment
I've been to the 'uncorked' event twice. I'm not aware that there is free sampling. You have to pay for each drink like in any bar although they do have a tasting flight of 3 wines for $15.

I think the writer means the event is free..and the music etc..its usually accepted you have to pay for your own drinks when you go somewhere.
