With a country as large and diverse as Australia, we are spoilt when it comes to great quality wine. And it’s no wonder given:
Wine is produced in every Australian state, though most wine is produced in the cooler, southern states.
There are 65 wine regions with hugely different climate, topography, and soils.
More than 100 varietals are grown in Australia with the top 5 varietals including Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
30 million glasses of Australian wine are drunk every day around the world.
