The home of Australian wine is South Australia, where unique combinations of soil, rainfall and temperature have created some of the world's best reds and stunning Rieslings. South Australian wine is fruity, rich and interesting - making it a joy to drink.
Scattered across a map of South Australia, are a number of wine growing regions from the best known Coonawarra Region through to the Riverlands, Limestone Coast, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Barossa Valley. Each region has unique regional variations in taste and quality, which makes wine holidays in South Australia a journey of discovery.
Adelaide, South Australia is less than an hour's drive from two wine regions - the Barossa Valley and the Fleurieu Peninsula, with the Barossa Valley the most visited tourism destination in South Australia - and justifiably so.
The Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia is half an hour's drive from Adelaide. The McLaren Vale wineries are the largest vineyards producing inky Shiraz and deep Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Barossa Valley Wine Region is the birthplace of Australian wine. Its Rieslings and Cabernet Sauvignons are world class. A wine tour of the Barossa Valley combines exquisite flavours with stunning architecture, making it truly memorable.
The Riverland is South Australia's fruit bowl. This region produces a large majority of South Australia's wine suitable for general consumption. The Murray River forms the heart of the Riverland.
The best red wines in the world - that perfectly describes the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignons from the Coonawarra wineries on the Limestone Coast in South Australia.
