Adelaide Hills Wine Region

by admin on August 8, 2011

Back in 1845 Australia’s very first wine to be exported was a claret produced in Echunga that was sent to Queen Victoria. To this day, the time honored traditions started nearly two centuries ago can be still found in South Australia’s oldest wine region among the 50 wineries in the Adelaide Hills.

This region now produced many of Australia’s most sought after cool climate still and sparkling wines from a variety of grapes such as, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay used for table and sparkling wines in the coolest locations.  In lower altitudes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz and in somewhat warmer locations there are Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.
