Enjoy a light meal and a glass of fine wine at Hahndorf Hill Winery, a boutique producer located just outside the historic Hahndorf village, the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia. This winery specializes in the production of alternative wines, including Grüner Veltliner, considered "the next big thing" in Australian wine. Located in the lush Adelaide Hills, in 2008 the winery planted some of the very first Grüner Veltliner grapevines in the country. The estate also produces several classic varieties for which this region is already well known, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and Shiraz. Stop by the cellar door for the popular ChocoVino experience, which matches the winery’s finest wines to the world’s most acclaimed chocolates.

  • The ChocoVino experience at Hahndorf Hill Winery is a unique experience. Choose from a number of different options, the idea is to match chocolate with wines from the winery. My wife and I learned lot...  read more »
  • I've been visiting Hahndorf Hill for many years now and it is my all time favourite winery. I have NEVER had a bad glass of wine there. Every one of their wines is an absolute classic interpretation of its style. I've been to other wineries and tried the pinot gris, or the sav blanc, or the riesling and been hard pressed to pick the intended style between the samples, as too often they were too much alike. Not so at Hahndorf Hill Wines where the wines are exquisitely crafted and true to type. The Gruner Veltliner is exceptional in that it is classified as the most food friendly wine in the world and HH does a cracking job of presenting their Gruner Veltliner. Their Shiraz Vault is a stunning gift for the wine connoisseur who has everything. I especially like their approach to the growing of their vines, with biodynamic practices. Larry is an outstanding host and if he is not there, you will still receive an outstanding experience in wine tasting from Dee or the other highly knowledgeable staff of HH wines. A jewel in the crown of the Adelaide Hills Wine Region and thoroughly recommended.
  • Unique wine, unique flavours of chocolate and purest water available :)
  • My friends & I have a lovely visit to the Hahndorf Hill Winery. The view are gorgeous; the staff were knowledgeable and attentive, but did not hover. Between us, we enjoyed the Chocovino experience with both red & white wines, and a cheese platter. Would highly recommend a visit to HHW.
  • They charge $5 for wine tasting. I only drink red and would be happy to pay this if they had a big selection of reds but all they had was two. They didn't offer to lower the tasting price because I wouldn't be tasting the four whites they had available nor give me more tasting for my money even though I made it very clear I will only be tasting the reds. I didn't buy a bottle out of pure dislike after driving out especially to their winery and being charged $5 for two of the tiniest sips of wine, I would have been better tasting their wine at a pub where I would get more value for money. This is the first time I've ever paid for a wine tasting at a winery. Whilst I'm not completely opposed to paying I don't wineries should be profiteering from people making the effort to come see what they have to offer. The whole experience has completely put me off this wine.
  • Fantastic wines, friendly staff and lovely surroundings. The winemakers too are lovely people. Have no issue with being charged $5 for a tasting either these days, the winemakers put so much of effort into making the wines and then to take the time out to discuss them with you and explain the differences between them. Why not. Highly recommended!
