Lonesome desert landscapes, some big cities at the coastline and the most beautiful beaches of the world in combination with a unique underwater world – this is what most people have in mind when thinking about Australia.
Some years ago, one could hardly imagine that top level wines would be crafted here. Nevertheless, there are some regions that feature unique geographic and climate realities offering best conditions for the cultivation of wine. The leading grape varieties are Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
For some years, the Australian wine has increasingly aroused international interest. Due to the cultivation of new grape varieties and the use of modern cultivation methods, the Australian wine makers have reached a remarkable position in the international wine industry. Today, Australia is the 7th biggest wine producer in the world.
