About Australian Wine

Australia is the world's 5th largest wine-producing country. While most of the country is too hot and dry for wine production, the south-eastern region is well suited.


Australian wines are identified by “Geographic Indication,” the term used to specify the country's wine regions, with South Australia, New South Wales, and Western Australia ranked as the most important.


Shiraz is the most widely planted and most important grape variety, but the country produces numerous varieties. Hunter Valley Semillon, Eden Valley Riesling, and Bordeaux varieties from Western Australia are among the fine wines produced in Australia.
