National Wine Centre

The National Wine Centre on the corner of North Terrace and Hackney Road is an impressive build and has a fairly swish Concourse Café. The Centre is also an exhibitor for the SALA 2011 where they are showing the work of Kangaroo Island artists with a theme of the Glossy Black Cockatoo. The work of over 20 artists is on display using a range of media. The colourful Cockatoo is an excellent theme for the artwork. Your reviewer's favourites were the vivid glasswork of Llewelyn Ash and the detailed etchings of Janet Ayliffe.
The hot chocolate came in a glass and saucer with two homemade marshmallows. The chocolate was a delicious dark rich flavour. It was creamy and was topped with a froth and dark chocolate powder. The hot chocolate cost three dollars.  This was an excellent place for a hot chocolate and a look at the art, even if you had no interest in wine.
