Australian Wine

The history of wine-making in Australia dates back to the late 1700s when the first European settlers arrived, bringing vines to plant around the coast near Sydney. As settlement spread throughout the country, so did wine-making, and exports of mostly dry red wine became popular in the UK by the late 1800s. World War II brought an even larger influx of European immigrants who began to focus on more quality wine-making practices. By the mid 1990s, the international market was taken by storm and Australian wine became a globalized industry, with many labels recognized throughout the world.

Though a small continent, Australia has an astonishing range in climates, with distinct growing regions that adapt to these conditions and many different styles of wine produced from sparkling to dry to off dry, dessert, and even ice wine. Shiraz (Syrah) has become the signature grape of Australia, huge on the international market, with great ranges in style and quality. Most growing regions in the country were spared Read more »

  • To begin with if red wine drinkers stick to wines from the Barossa Valley or Coonawarra they won't go wrong. When you've exhausted those after a few months of continuous drinking go to wines from Clare Valley & Margaret River. The varieties in Oz will take a lifetime to get through.
