Wine Regions of Australia
Wine Regions of Australia are vast and diverse. Boasting some 70 regions across 6 states and 1 Territory, from the power of the Barossa & McLaren Vale, the elegance of the Yarra Valley and Tasmania. the funky Adelaide Hills and the Riverland.
The Prominence of our Wine Regions of Australia to produce world wide acclaim.
Rieslings from Clare Valley and Eden Valley, Cabernet from Margaret River and the Coonawarra, Grenache from Barossa and McLaren Vale, Sauvignon Blanc from Adelaide Hills and Canberra, Semillon from the Hunter .
Much if the history of Australian wine come from our immigrants from Europe, Germans, Italians, French, Greeks have all had enormous influence in how we see Australian Wine now!!
Australia’s land area is larger than all of Europe, so in essence we have a diverse regions like Champagne – Tasmania, Bordeaux – Barossa Valley, Burgundy -Yarra Valley , Madera- McLaren Vale, Alsace – Adelaide Hills, Piemonte – Margaret River, Tuscany – Great Southern, Puglia – Coonawarra.
in fact if you were to drive from Mornington Peninsula wine region to Margaret River, it would take you 39 hours. So it it plain to see that they have nothing in common.
In Fact , one of our great challenges it to make people understand – Australia as a wine region to an Aussie , is like saying this wine is from Europe, or USA.
Where it is from is so important!!
