Top 5 Wineries to Visit in Australia

Some people say they prefer New Zealand over Australia, but after visiting 3 of the major wine regions, I don’t prefer one over the other. They are both wonderful wine destinations with great vistas and great wines. It’s just that Australia is on a different scale of magnitude.

We visited many of the top wineries of Hunter Valley, Adelaide and its surrounding wine and Yarra Valley and I have culled what I believe are the top 5 we visited. Not all were picked because of their impressive facilities so read on for my picks and why.

The Top 5 Wineries to Visit When In Australia:

  • Tyrrells Hunter Valley- one of the grand Aussie wineries with an aura of the 1800s
  • d’Arenberg McLaren Vale- another grand style Aussie winery with a superb restaurant
  • Torbreck Barossa- brand new cellardoor overlooking the vineyards
  • The Lane Adelaide Hills- nestled amongst the vineyards also with a great restaurant
  • Penfold’s McGill Estate Adelaide Hills- the one winery visit not be missed

And here are 5 others which I recommend visiting while you’re in those areas:

  • Peppertree Hunter Valley- small boutique winery atmosphere
  • Oakridge Yarra Valley- spectacular views and spectacular wines
  • Yarra Yering Yarra Valley- great vineyard view and intimate tasting room
  • McGuigan Wines Hunter Valley- a behemoth of a winery
  • Rockford Barossa- like walking back in time
