Event Details

Wine and winemaking is an integral part of the South Australian story. Our reputation as the wine state is reflected in the State Library’s impressive collections of wine related material. This slideshow and talk will appeal to wine aficionados and social consumers keen to find out more about South Australia’s pioneering winemaking achievements. It will also lead into the summer festive season when sparkling wine comes into its own.

Enjoy historical insights into viticulture and winemaking in South Australia through photographs, letters and diaries. Records documenting company winemaking operations, and oral histories deliver personal insights into viticulture. Our collections of wine labels, menus and wine lists add to our social history, while objects such as a grape treading boot and rare books add a special quality to the collection.

This program includes a 30 minute guided walk through the heritage Mortlock Wing, contemporary Spence Wing and Treasures Wall exhibition area. 

 

After the tour you may like to view one of our current exhibitions: From Outback to Outer Space: Woomera 1955-1980 or The Photography of Stavros Pippos. You can also relax with refreshments or a light meal in our friendly cafe.
