Adelaide Botanic Garden Wines launch
The wine is available for purchase at the National Wine Centre ($25 per bottle) and by the glass at Adelaide Botanic Garden’s Café Fibonacci ($7.50).
In an awesome move, the Adelaide Botanic Gardens has partnered with the National Wine Centre of Australia and Jacobs’s Creek Winemakers to make a wine from grapes grown in the city.
Released yesterday, the Rosé and Dry White were made from the vineyard that straddles the land of the Botanic Gardens and Wine Centre near the corner of Botanic Road and Dequetteville Terrace.
A limited run of just 500 bottles of each varietal has been produced. Botanic Gardens of South Australia Director Janice Goodwins says the project is important in both historic and contemporary ways.
“Today marks a special day in what may be a world first collaboration – a wine produced solely from grapes grown at a botanic garden, which were tenderly maintained by a state-of-the-art wine centre, and produced with the support of some of the finest winemakers on the planet,” she says.
