Australia is ranked as the world’s 6th largest wine producer, and the finest Australian wines are among the best in the world - a judgment that is consistently reinforced at international wine shows.
Australia has some of the oldest grape vines in the world. Many of Europe’s established vineyards were destroyed by disease (phylloxera) in the 1800s. The only survivors were the vines brought to Australia.
In just 200 years, Australia’s wine industry has grown from a few small plantings to an industry renowned throughout the world for quality, innovation and depth that produces every one of the major wine styles.
