Australia

Australia has over 60 designated wine regions and is the world’s fourth largest wine exporter. Good quality wine is made throughout the country with South Australia being the most prolific producer. South Australia’s generous climate and free-settler history played a key part in the emergence of its fine wine regions. From as early as the 1830s, vineyards were established close to Adelaide at Reynella, and in the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek districts. German Lutheran immigrants, fleeing European religious persecution in Silesia, moved into the Barossa Valley farm lands around 1840 - planting vineyards as they settled. In the Clare district, Sevenhill’s vineyard was planted by Austrian Jesuits in 1848. Thomas Hardy set up his Bankside Cellars and vineyards in the suburbs of Adelaide around 1850. Coonawarra’s development is more recent, largely due to the efforts of David Wynn, who established the Wynns Coonawarra Estate winery in 1951. Even now over 150 years later, the cultural heritage and history of these wine-making pioneers are still very much evident in the regions’ day-to-day life, and in the character of the wines produced.
