We were going to bang on about the Hills’ proximity to the city, wonderful food and extremely photogenic good looks, but local (and panellist) Max Anderson summed it up for us: “This cool climate wine region is just 20 minutes from the city but a world away and a thousand metres up. Escape into the vales, valleys and villages for some 50 cellar doors plus a slew of farm gates. Or make it easy and base yourself in historic Hahndorf, now something of a gourmet artisan hub. Nearby wineries like The Lane, Shaw+Smith and Hahndorf Hill serve up views to match the vintages.”  More info: South Australia
