Australia

Australia is a dynamic wine producing country with approximately 60 wine regions and 103 "defined geographic indications" or GI zones. Across Australia, just shy of 400,000 acres are planted to vineyards. Although wine is produced in every state, most activity takes place in the southern, cooler parts of the country - South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. The wine regions in each of these areas produce a wide variety of types and styles that reflect Australia's vast climatic differences, topography and soil types – in short, Terroir.

South Australia

The first vines in South Australia were planted in approximately 1845 in what is now metropolitan Adelaide, South Australia’s largest city. Largely because of climate and soils South Australia is ideally suited to the production of full-bodied wine making it the heart of Australia’s wine production since those first vines took root.
