The Adelaide region of South Australia is known as the wine capital of the Australia, and worldwide for its great wines and beautiful views. As such, it is perfect for a winery or country-style wedding, and for those looking for a touch of the rustic. It has great weather year-round, with the lowest temperatures in the winter months (but no lower than 8oC). Avoid the months of June to September as they have more rainy days on average than the other months of the year. Here are our favourite wineries in Adelaide that offer their services as wedding venues!
