UP IN THE HILLS

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Special Feature -

It’s al­most in­com­pre­hen­si­ble to a city­d­weller like me that barely half an hour’s drive from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city’s CBD are rolling hills and bu­colic vine­yards, but that’s ex­actly what Ade­laide Hills of­fers: an idyl­lic coun­try­side just 40-kilo­me­tre east of Ade­laide city. On the way in, be pre­pared for windy roads, but the gor­geous scenery along the way will make your drive well worth it. to pro­duce wine made from the Ger­man/ Aus­trian red grapes Blaufraukisch and Trollinger. Be sure to try the Cho­covino Ex­pe­ri­ence, which pairs its sin­gle-es­tate wines with sin­gle-es­tate cho­co­lates. We were rec­om­mended by one of the staff to start off with the Dis­cover Choco­late tast­ing, which be­gins with a roasted cacao bean – the taste might not go well with all taste buds, but it def­i­nitely gave us a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what makes a good choco­late. To help din­ers bet­ter un­der­stand about cho­co­lates, the es­tab­lish­ment also of­fers ex­cel­lent tast­ing notes for each course, and the staff on duty is al­ways on standby to an­swer ques­tions. Among the cho­co­lates we tried
