Adelaide Hills, SA

Adelaide Hills, SA

For most Adelaide residents, a drive through the hills is a popular pastime, particularly due to the slightly (2–3 degrees) cooler temperatures in summer and lush green and sometimes frosty winters. The area receives a light snowfall approximately once every three to four years, occasionally enough to stay on the ground for half a day.

The hills region is a premier wine region and also one of Australia's oldest. The veritable maze of valleys and sub-valleys, with slopes offering every conceivable aspect, means there is as much mesoclimatic variation as one can find anywhere in Australia, making generalisations of wine type very hazardous.

The first vines were planted in the Hills in 1839, three years after South Australia was declared a province, a case of that wine was delivered to Queen
Victoria in 1844.
