Adelaide’s Best Degustations for the Ultimate Fine Dining Experience

For those who want a taste for the finer things in life, and to savour it over many, many courses.

Magill Estate

A degustation (French for tasting) is an experience everyone must try at least once. Multiple courses of fine food served in just the right proportion ensure you sample a little bit of everything, leave satisfied and potentially try your favourite new dish. A la carte menus no longer reign supreme. Put your trust in the chef's carefully curated theatre of flavours complimented by their expert Sommelier’s pairings to taste, because after all – they are the ones who know best.

Here’s our multi-course menagerie of South Australia and Adelaide's best degustations.
