Taking in Australia's Wine Country

By Josh Cheak

The Enchantment of Australia's Wine Country

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about

Australia is usually not the wine. However, Australia has

some beautiful wine country with five distinct regions in

the state of South Australia. The wine is delicious, and

the scenery spectacular. And, in typical Australian

fashion, there is no reason to hurry through any of it.

In Adelaide Hills, you can enjoy the comforts and pace of

the country, yet be close enough to one of Australia's major

cities, Adelaide, with all of its attractions. The

attractions of Adelaide Hills include plenty of vineyards to

tour and wine to taste. It is close to the state of Victoria

and you can even see some beautiful Victorian countryside.

Barossa. One of Australia's best wine producing regions,

this valley is an absolute treat. Known throughout the world

as a premier wine producer, Barossa's beauty and wine

producing capabilities have attracted many European

influences. Many of Barossa's villages resemble those found

in Germany or England in terms of their architecture, tone

and tradition. You can relax and enjoy an afternoon sipping

local wine along with European specialties.

Clare Valley. Clare Valley boasts Australia's Reisling

Trail. The trail is 27 kilometers long, and is considered a

very fine bike ride. Most of the areas 40 cellars are on

the route, and so you can stop and sample the local fare.

There are also plenty of restaurants and hostels along the

way, allowing you to complete the trail as quickly or as

slowly as you would like.

Fleurieu Peninsula. Stretching from just south of Adelaide

this peninsula continues down to Cape Jarvis. As you can

make out from its name, this peninsula has some French

influences, fine wines included. The highlight of the

peninsula is a beautiful wine-producing district called the

McLaren Vale with close to 60 cellars. The proprietors of

these cellars are known for encouraging tasting and treating

guests to their exemplary hospitality.

Limestone Coast bears the name because of the limestone that

forms this part of the Australian coast. The wine produced

in this region is of superior quality because of the rich

limestone foundation. Limestone causes the soil to decay and

it in turn breaks down into nutrients. The decaying process

also creates natural aeration, which is ideal for growing

vineyards. Limestone Coast is listed as a World Heritage

Site because of some of the world's most acclaimed wines,

and its system of unique underground caves.

There are many ways to enjoy any or all of Australia's

beautiful wine country. You can choose to travel by bike,

car, or even hot air balloon. Hot air balloons allow you to

get a bird's eye view of the countryside. Many cellars allow

you to land in their vineyards and welcome you with a glass

of wine.

It is also enjoyable to bike ride through wine country.

Clare Valley is not the only bicycle friendly place. You

will find bike trails wherever you go. There is no doubt

that wine country in Australia has as much style as it has
