South Aussies are fiercely proud of their food and wine – and rightly so. Here are seven of our favourite SA foodie experiences.
1. It’s hip to be square in McLaren Vale
The d’Arenberg Cube has caused a stir among both wine and architecture enthusiasts. Explore all manner of out-there food, wine and art experiences, or keep it simple by sipping your favourite tipple overlooking the vines.

2. La Boca is a carnivore’s delight
La Boca Bar and Grill is famous for all things meat thanks to their Argentinian head chef, Nicolas Arriola, who’s brought his Michelin-star skills to Adelaide.

3. Get a taste of luxury in the Adelaide Hills
You may have seen in a previous samotor article that the Adelaide Hills was bursting with exciting new wine, beer, cheese and chocolate experiences – as well as plenty of old favourites. It’s also one of the closest foodie regions to the city, making it the perfect day-trip destination.
Now, how does a private, chauffeured tour of the best food and wine in the Hills sound? Pick your own itinerary or let Hills Luxury Day Tours decide.

If you’re a bit of an outback adventurer, this one’s for you. Parachilna’s Prairie Hotel has a whole host of feral animal options on their menu, from camel to emu.
Why not swap your surf and turf for a feral mixed grill with crispy roast potatoes and a red wine jus?
There are plenty of walking tours departing from Rawnsley Station or Wilpena Pound Resort if you feel like you might need to walk off that feast.
