Winery regions in South Australia are situated in the coastal plain of Bass Strait. It is home to some the most beautiful and exquisite wines in the country. For winery tours or tasting events, November through April is the best time to visit Australia. The climate here is cool and pleasant during the winter months and hot and humid during the summer months. Wineries are able to take advantage of the seasonal changes by taking advantage of both conditions and practicing careful production and aging techniques.
Clare Valley, Newell and Barossa Valley were the first wineries in South Australia that opened. There have been numerous vineyards constructed in south Australia. Some areas have become known as wine capitals of Australia with their abundance of vineyards and their proximity to retirement living regions in Australia’s capital city of Sydney.
South Australia is divided into two provinces. The largest city in Adelaide Hills is located in the Adelaide Hills. Many vineyards are located near the outskirts of the city in the hope that they will one day attract people towards their winery and produce exceptional quality wines to be enjoyed by their patrons. With the abundance of vineyards in the area, it is not surprising to find that there are a number of excellent wines coming from this region. The famous Adelaide Winery Region, located in the Lasemblemoori region of South Australia, is one of South Australia’s most well-known wineries.
Adelaide Winery can be found on Mt Gambier’s Table Mountain. Its slopes are also surrounded by scenic Blackall Range. This region located at the base of Mt Gambier offers a superb backdrop for the world’s top vineyards. Some of the famous vineyards in the Lasemblemoori region located in the district include Mount Gambier Wine Estate, Mt Gambier Vineyard and the New England Vineyard. Another stunning backdrop is provided by the Blackall Mountains for Lasemblemoori vineyard grapes. Another reason South Australian wines are so well-known around the globe is because of this.
Other winery regions in South Australia include Flinders Island, although it is not a dependent colony of Australia, but is rather a province within the State of Victoria. The main cities of Melbourne and Adelaide are located near the coastal area and the wine region is named after the island. The wine production in this area can be traced back to the 1820s, although it was until the Second World War that the island was established as a winery region. The rich history and outstanding quality of the wines produced in this area make it an exciting place for any wine lover to visit.
The next winery region in South Australia to be mentioned is the Clare Valley. The name of this area derives from its proximity to the renowned wine producing area of Clare Valley in Victoria. A number of boutique and small family owned winery operations now flourish in the area which was once the home of the world’s largest production facility for Chardonnay. The vintage wines produced here are now being enjoyed by people all around the world.
The last but certainly not the least of the South Australian wine regions to be mentioned is the Barossa Valley. The name Barossa comes from the aboriginal term which meant “people of the reed”. It was first settled by Aborigines, and has been one the best wine-growing regions of Australia. It is a wonderful place for friends and family to enjoy a relaxing holiday and also have fun with their wine tasting.
Most people think that wine tours are only about touring vineyards and I can agree with them in this regard. However, a wine tour to any of these regions will provide an absolutely unforgettable experience. The best wines from around the globe will be offered in attractive, appealing bottles. So go ahead and plan a wine tour in South Australia and enjoy!
