Go west, young man (and woman). It might contain the most geographically isolated wine regions in the world, but Western Australia is certainly not lonely for company. Its natural beauty and biodiversity make it a popular drawcard for visitors and is supported by an adept tourist industry.
Characterised by both, laid-back country casual and sophisticated opulence, Western Australia has a multi-faceted identity. Its many wine regions are no different. There is a climate and a wine variety for every day of the year – from cool to hot, from chardonnay to shiraz.
Most of the wine regions are in the south-western tip. Swan Hill is the oldest wine producing haven in the state, but it is complemented beautifully by newer regions getting famous thanks to pioneering approaches to viticulture and a particular leaning towards biodynamic practices.
