Charming landscapes, exquisite food, and world-class wines. It all comes together at wineries across Australia.
Australian wine ranks among the world’s best. Whether you like to sit and sip among the vines or dive deep into the winemaking world, there’s a cellar door in Australia to suit. Unwind with a glass of red in the Barossa Valley or wander through the vines in the Adelaide Hills.
Western Australia is known for producing some of the most elegant wines in the country. Margaret River, a three-hour drive south of Perth, is the state’s most famous wine region.
South Australia is home to some of the oldest continuously producing vineyards in the world, so it’s no surprise that its regions are regarded as some of the country’s best. In the Barossa Valley, you’ll find the region’s claim to fame - big, bold shiraz that’s exceptionally smooth.
In Victoria, east of Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is the state’s oldest growing region, with the first grapes planted in 1838. Although the industry dates back over 170 years, the Yarra Valley is still known for its revolutionary winemakers that craft boundary-pushing bottles while respecting the traditions of the region.
In New South Wales the Hunter Valley is the oldest wine region in Australia. Just under 3.5 hours from Sydney by car, the Hunter is home to some of Australia’s most famous winemaking families, like Tulloch and Tyrrell, as well as new names in the game.
Tasmania’s climate and soil make for some of the best chardonnay, pinot noir and sparkling wines in the country. The Tamar Valley, located less than an hour from Launceston, is home to several wineries that show off the best of the region.
