Testimonials

My Partner and I booked the Hickinbotham Room for our wedding scheduled for the 21st March 2020. Danielle was our main point of contact during the whole planning process. She was fantastic to deal with and always made the time to respond to all enquiries in a professional, helpful and understanding manner. 

A few days before the wedding, the government enforced new restrictions around the number of guests able to be inside due to the spread of Covid-19. As expected, this was devastating news to us as we had a large amount of guests due to attend our reception. We thought all hope was lost and that we would have to postpone the wedding. However, Danielle and the team came together to discuss what options they had to ensure our wedding could proceed with minimal disruption. They came up with the beautiful idea of moving our reception outdoors to the terrace area. They managed to reconfigure the whole reception layout, floor plan and table arrangements within a few days to ensure our wedding was able to go ahead. All the staff we dealt with during this time were so sweet and caring and understanding and it meant the world to us as it was a difficult thing to process so close to the day. They worked together with our Vendors and contacted them directly to provide updates and also made sure if something didn't work due to the new location/restrictions that they had a new plan in place already. 

My partner and I could not believe the effort and care that went into the event. We honestly thought the wedding wasn't going to be able to go ahead. We had lost all hope but thanks to the dedication and hard work of the team at the Wine Centre we were able to celebrate our wedding and had the best night ever! We will always be forever grateful to Danielle and the whole team and the Wine Centre for saving our wedding and also providing an exceptional alternative which we ended up loving more than the original concept!

A fantastic experience. So easy and flexible with planning and organising events. Staff were amazing throughout the night and very efficient. The food was absolutely delicious (as always, I had multiple tastings in the lead up)! Such a beautiful setting, so easy and convenient.

We recently had our wedding at the national wine centre. Right from the beginning contact right through to the end of the night the service was unbelievable! Danielle was so helpful and fantastic with all of our questions. She ensured that our event went off without a hitch. The menu tasting we had was professional and amazing and we knew we were in the right place so thanks to the chefs as well! Vinh the supervisor on the night was amazing and so helpful as were all of the service staff! Thankyou so much to everyone for making our wedding so lovely.

My family and I had a wonderful experience working with Danielle and the NWC. Danielle was prompt, accommodating and patient when it came to organising my wedding. She was always willing to help, and worked very hard to meet all our requirements. The day was exactly how we wanted it, and all credit to Danielle and the NWC for this. I would highly recommend the NWC as a wedding venue in Adelaide!

I just want to send the BIGGEST thank you to you and all your staff at the Wine Centre! Our wedding was the most amazing day and the success and fun of the night was partly thanks to your staff! Our waitress was fantastic and provided fantastic service. Every single guest I have spoken to since (most have called up just to say) have said how fantastic the food and service was. I could not fault a single thing and can’t recommend the Wine Centre enough! 

Thank you for making the lead up so seamless and stress-free. You were so accommodating and nothing was ever too hard!

We’re so glad that we picked the wine centre to hold our special day. Nothing was too hard for you and for this we are so thankful. The staff on the night were incredible and their service was outstanding. In all we couldn’t be happier with the day/night and feedback from our guests has been nothing but praise of the venue and staff.

Highly recommend the wine centre as a wedding venue. The service throughout the wedding process has been excellent, the staff went above & beyond to cater to my every need. There was never a no to any of my requests & on the day their support especially the wedding coordinator Dannielle was what got me through the day. There was not one single complaint from me or my guests about the venue, service & or the food for my wedding day & for that Thank you so much!! If I could get married all over again I wouldn’t choose any other venue to do it at :) It was that perfect!

Our special “Family Merge” was a massive success because of the effort you all put into it as we struggled through the planning from Sydney. The whole NWC Team stepped up and took on more than we thought to make it all happen for us.

We had such an amazing and special day only made more seamless by the attention to detail that your team deployed throughout the day. All of our guests could not speak highly enough of the banquet team who were extremely attentive to all our needs and requirements. They also absolutely raved about the fantastic food. We can’t recommend the National Wine Centre highly enough.

We would like to thank you and the staff for such a wonderful wedding reception, everything fell into place flawlessly. Many of our guests complimented the impeccable service of the wait staff and the quality and taste of the food was absolutely divine. Could not be happier with the wine centre.

Your assistance in the lead up to the wedding was incredible and because of this, everything looked amazing and ran so smoothly. Even on the day, we arrived earlier than expected and you and your staff were so accommodating and attentive. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, the staff, in particular Sharon, were outstanding.

Nothing was too much trouble for Sharon and it was so nice to have her as our point of contact on the night. What a star!

I think the majority of our guests have contacted us to comment on how phenomenal the food and service was on the night. The service was next level and I have had guests say the steak was the best steak they have ever eaten so please pass this positive feedback on to your talented chefs.

I could seriously go on and on about how amazing everything was. It honestly exceeded our expectations in every way and we wish we could relive the night over again. I have already highly recommended the National Wine Centre to a number of my friends and will continue to do so for many years to come.

From the bottom of our hearts we wanted to say thank you. The lead up and the night ran so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night. 

You were so easy to get along with and no question was too silly.  Especially given we’ve never organised a wedding before it was a ridiculously easy process doing it with the National Wine Centre. 

Your staff on the night were just perfect. They were helpful and attentive. All the guests were immensely happy with the night.

Just wanted to say a very big thank you to yourself and entire team at the Wine Centre. We were thrilled with how beautiful the room was, how seamless the execution of everything was of everything, it really was perfect and we could not fault anything. The team on the night was very attentive and helpful which made everything stress free. We have had so much feedback about how much everyone loved the space and the food, commenting how they loved the fact they could be outside but still see and enjoy everything going on inside. Many have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to which is HUGE when you have a family that attends multiple weddings a year.
