There are few better places on earth to enjoy wine tasting than in Australia; a country that’s awash with highly acclaimed wine estates generating award-winning vintages amid some amazingly beautiful settings.
After the country’s signature Shiraz burst on the scene in the 1980s, wineries in Australia first came to the attention of foreign audiences.While their diverse existence has also given rise to acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Noir, Shiraz (known elsewhere as Syrah) still reigns supreme in many Australian wine regions.

Australian wineries are distributed across all six states, including the Island of Tasmania, but South Australia, where the most recognizable names are based on vineyards in the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley and McLaren Vale, is undeniably the epicentre of the country’s wine industry.Some of Australia’s best wineries can also be found in Western Australia’s Margaret River region, which is renowned for its Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Hunter Valley of New South Wales, where arguably the finest Shiraz is grown in the world.
