Applewood Distillery / Unico Zelo Wines
Tucked in the northern reaches of the Adelaide Hills lies Gumeracha. From this historic hamlet, some of the best Adelaide Hills produce is at your fingertips. Pull up a seat in the old Gumeracha cold store and sample locally made wine, gin and small-batch spirits at Unico Zelo or head down the road to Mt Bera Vineyards where cool-climate wines, lunch and sweeping valley views await. Of course, no trip to Gumeracha is complete without grabbing a snap at the famed the big rocking horse. Minutes away in Cudlee Creek, Gorge Wildlife Park is one of the best family-friendly things to do in the hills. A picturesque drive north into the hills, more local produce is dished up between trellised hillsides and valley orchards at the Inglewood Inn and is best washed down with a Paracombe perry or wine. Venture further and explore Birdwood, a mecca for car enthusiasts and home to the National Motor Museum and the final destination on the classic and vintage car event, Bay to Birdwood.
