Australian wine

Wine-making in Australia dates back to the late 1700s when the first European settlers arrived, bringing vines to plant around the coast near Sydney… Most growing regions in the country were spared from Phylloxera, so many descendants of original vinifera vines still exist without the need for hybrid grafting.

Oldest vineyards in the world

45 minutes driving distance from Adelaide are the rolling hills of Barossa Valley. The region is unique because of its isolation from the rest of the world. Phylloxera hasn’t yet infected vineyard soils in Barossa, which means it’s home to some of the oldest living vineyards in the world.
