Australia’s best wineries

With over 2000 wineries dotted around Australia’s wine regions there are plenty of choices to visit and sample some of the finest whites and reds on offer. Andrea has uncovered some of the best, which not only present the opportunity to sample and purchase first-rate wine, but also include fine dining, scenic tours, special events and art displays in some of the most spectacular locations in Australia.

South Australia

Best known for red wines which can be drunk immediately, the wineries of South Australia are plentiful, so make sure that you have a designated driver.

Adelaide Hills

  • Penfolds Magill Estate, this 100 year old winery is home to Australia’s best known wine – the legendary Grange

Barossa Valley

  • Grant Burge, well known for its full-bodied reds
  • Seppeltsfield, one of Australia’s oldest wineries, you can sample its signature wine, the 100 year old Para Tawny

Clare Valley

  • Annie’s Lane, treat yourself to their beautiful full-flavoured Shiraz


  • D’Arenberg, offering a wide range of red, white, fortified and port wines

New South Wales

The mixed climate of NSW means that it produces a full range of wines; white, red and sparkling. Confined to a small area, a weekend in the wineries is definitely doable.

    This would have to be a joke right? It's disappointing that only the predictable wineries that tourists frequent are mentioned. Coonawarra seriously has the best reds in Australia and not only that, but their value for money far exceeds the overpriced and ordinary couple you mentioned from WA. Puleeez! It appears that very little research was instigated to provide this lazy list.

    I'm with you Robbo! What about Victorian North East, the Bellarine - that other peninsula - just for starters. Victorian choices seem to be 'metropolitan' centric.
