The 26 Academy Chairs, known as The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, will experience the best of the region’s vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley, meet with local producers and South Australian chefs, and dine in some of the state’s best restaurants as part of their two-day annual general meeting.

The official Academy Dinner will be held at Hentley Farm, while other highlights of the program include the Wild Adelaide Welcome Feast in the Adelaide Hills with Orana chef Jock Zonfrillo and Duncan Welgemoed from Africola cooking wild South Australian produce over fire; a bush breakfast with kangaroos; and a helicopter tour over the Barossa, landing at the Steingarten Vineyard for a St Hugo Riesling tasting experience.

“South Australia is providing an exceptional itinerary that will further highlight Australia’s incredible restaurant, food and wine scene to some of the world’s most influential identities,” said Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan.

“Following the Academy Chairs’ visit to South Australia, they will also have the opportunity to visit another Australian region, with the aim of them leaving Australia as long-term ambassadors of our food and wine.”

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will be held in Melbourne in April 2017, with more than 200 of the most influential people in the global restaurant industry visiting Australia for the program of events.
