Great wines from Australia’s south. The Adelaide Plains region has a dry but maritime climate with a very low incidence of disease. The region is hot and dry, with an annual rainfall that is among the lowest of all Australian wine regions. Most of the production is processed in the Barossa Valley, with the exception of a few small producers who have shown what can be achieved with the region’s grape material. The soils in this area are excellent and allow high yields. The Australian wines mainly produced there are from the Chardonnay, Colombard, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grape varieties.

The wines from the Adelaide Hills are characterised by the cool altitude of the region, the changing seasons and the skill and passion of the winemakers. Vines were planted in the Adelaide Hills as early as the 1870s, but due to the challenges of the cool climate in viticulture in those early days, most vines were removed in the 1930s.

The rebirth of the Adelaide Hills region began in the 1970s and gained momentum with the increasing popularity of cool climate wines in the 1980s and 1990s. The cooler climate defines the Adelaide Hills and gives it a distinctive difference from other South Australian wine regions. Today, the region is seen as a driving force in the production of Australian wines, particularly Australian whites. And as an incubator of creativity and the home of bold, boundary-pushing winemakers.
