Riverland Wine Region: Let’s paint the picture: over 300km of winding wine countryside, following the mighty Murray River. All to a backdrop of limestone cliffs as it makes its way to the ocean. Pretty isn’t it? Here you will find a vast array of wineries – large and small – across five main towns producing almost a third of Australia’s grapes.
The warm climate is ripe for daring interpretations of zinfandel, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and merlot as well as experimentation with Mediterranean varieties (montepulciano, vermentino and nero d’avola).
As the name suggests, Riverland life revolves around the river – look to the waterfront for activities, accommodation and dining and you can’t go wrong.
