The cool maritime climate of the Adelaide Hills excels in producing premium Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Appellations of South Australia

The Barossa Valley is the engine of Australian wine. It has a warm, dry climate that is generally consistent year on year, making it the perfect region for commercial grape growing and wine production on scale. It is also the home to some of the world’s oldest vineyards. Often wild and untrained, they can turn out beautifully silky, intense and dramatic Shirazes. Neighbouring the Barossa to the south is the Adelaide Hills, a cooler region famed for bright, crisp Chardonnays. To the east, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale lead the charge with a mix of Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon.
