Australia has so much to offer no matter whether you’d like to focus on big cities, small towns, beaches or the outback. Today, we’ll be focusing on wineries since this is a great reason for visiting Australia regardless of whether you are a wine connoisseur or merely an enthusiast. You’ll be able to try and admire a variety of good quality wines from all over the country. Going around wineries is a fantastic opportunity to experience a harmony of taste and learn about the production of different wines. There’s something for everyone and judging by the amazing winery experiences, it’s practically impossible for you to go back from this trip disappointed.
Australian Wineries in Small Towns
Margaret River, Western Australia
This small place has a lot to offer in terms of food, wine, and beautiful beaches. If you’re into surfing, you have another reason to visit this place in particular. As far as wine is concerned, try visiting Stella Bella Wines or Voyager Estate Winery, where the staff is extremely pleasant, and you can hire a driver to get you back to the hotel so you can really have a go at all sorts of wine-tasting options.
Mornington Peninsula, Victoria
This small region has some of the best wineries in the country. Red Hill Estate is the one I would like to set aside from all others. One of the reasons why it’s best to visit when the weather is nice and warm is so you can sit outside and enjoy both the view and the taste of the delicious white wine which is their specialty. I’m not a fan of white wine, but theirs is truly amazing.
When someone mentions McLaren Vale, my first thought is always Fox Creek Wines. The wine is absolutely amazing as the people who make it are professionals, and wine has been their passion for many years. Everything is wonderful – the wine, the food, the staff and the whole experience in general. If you’d like to take a tour around the place, don’t worry – you can book an adventurous afterpay holiday and design your own payment schedule. This is something every wine lover must experience!
Tamar Valley is a beautiful combination of heavenly nature and wine. It’s a great summer or spring option as you will want to explore nature on foot with pauses for drinking some of the finest red wines at Piper’s Brook or the delicious sparkling wine at Jansz. These places also have cafes where you can have a light meal, so you won’t have to worry about drinking too much on an empty stomach.
Yarra Valley, Victoria
This is Victoria’s famous wine region and very popular due to its proximity to Melbourne. It has more than 80 wineries. There is also a number of great restaurants, national parks and sights to see in this area. You can go around vineyards and wineries as much as you want to. The selection is rich, and I have to mention the option of taking the Wine and Chocolate tour of the Yarra Valley. There’s nothing better than a combination of a great Pinot noir and fine chocolate.
Australia is an excellent country for wine lovers. Not only can you enjoy wineries and wine tastings, but you can do so in stunning sceneries that highlight the incredible uniqueness of every region of this beautiful country. So, if you’ve already read our posts about small towns in Australia (parts one and two), you can have an incredible holiday that combines wine, nature and many other adventures and carefully planned routes!
