uberVINO – your designated driver to the Adelaide Hills

With over 50 cellar doors to choose from, dozens of artisan purveyors and rolling hills with an abundance of native fauna and flora, Adelaide Hills is a favourite among locals and visitors alike.

Although just 20 minutes from the CBD, getting to, from and around the region historically meant a quick rock, paper, scissors to pick the designated driver or paying for a private chauffeur.

Until uberVINO arrived that is…

Starting today, local residents and visitors will have a new convenient, reliable and affordable way to explore the Adelaide Hills wine region, with the launch of uberVINO in Adelaide.

Whether you’re travelling interstate, visiting from overseas or simply fancy visiting your favourite winery, uberVINO means you can request your own safe, affordable and reliable driver at the push of a button.

“With the Festival Season underway, we are extremely excited to welcome uberVINO riders into our wine region. With 50+ wineries throughout the Adelaide Hills and only 20 minutes up the freeway, the service will offer a flexible, safe and reliable way to experience our diverse wine offerings,” – Nicole Roberts, Executive Officer, Adelaide Hills Wine Region.

New to uberVINO? Enter the code ‘UBERVINOADL’ in the app to receive $20 off your first uberVINO ride! Expires 31/3/2017.

Your designated driver app

With uberVINO you can make Uber your designated driver app – so you can sit back, enjoy the food and wine, without worrying about who’s going to drive home.

“Plan your winery tour to ensure you can have a great day out and get home safely. Remember to DrinkWise and uberVino this weekend,” – John Scott, CEO, DrinkWise.

More clarity and control over your tour

uberVINO means you have clarity and control over the cost of your ride. With a simple hourly fare of $39/h (calculated 65c per minute), you can create a wine tour to suit your wallet and your schedule.

You can stop the tour whenever and wherever you like, and there’s no limit to the time or distance on uberVINO trips. Please note there is a minimum fare of $50.
