Aussie Wine Adventure

  • Publish Date: Feb 18, 2010

With Australia’s winemakers generating buzz for their inventive wines, now is the time to go to Australia and learn their secrets.

Sure you can sip Australian wines at home, but they will never taste as satisfying as they do after you walk the grounds. For the active sippers, try South Australia’s Clare Valley’s Cycling Riesling Trail or the Barossa Valley’s Butcher, Baker and Winemaker Trail where you’ll wine and dine as you take it all in.

Luckily, the action isn’t confined to the vineyards and wineries. Australia is teeming with festivals where you’ll be surrounded by Aussies having a good time. The Melbourne Food & Wine Festival‘s World’s Longest Lunch in March is as epic as it sounds and will take you to one of Australia’s most beautiful cities. With incredible deals including free nights on Food & Wine vacations, now is the time to discover some of the world’s most beautiful vineyards and enjoy the best of Australia – its wildlife, cities and people.
