Experience Australia's famous wine regions with a vineyard tour
Once a nation of beer and tea guzzlers, many Australians have taken a turn towards wine and coffee as their preferred beverages of choice. With a reputation for good climate, rich soil and clear, fresh air, Australia produces some of the world’s top quality wines, with the wine industry expanding rapidly in the last 30 years. Wine is produced in every state in Australia, with more than 60 wine regions around the country totalling approximately 160,000 hectares. As a result of different environmental factors, each state produces different wine varieties and styles, so why not jump aboard and go on a tour to explore the flavours Australia has on offer?
Where are some of the best wine regions in Australia?
Producing more than half of Australia’s wines, South Australia is famously renowned as the wine region of the country, home to the regions of the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale. Western Australia is home to the Margaret River region, as well as the Swan Valley, closely located to Perth. In Australia’s south, the Victoria wine region includes that of the Pyrenees, Yarra Valley and Goulburn Valley.
