Adelaide Hills Wine

This is a region of rapidly growing importance for the production of super-premium table and sparkling wine. The only limitation on its potential growth is that imposed by water conservation and alternative land use requirements. It is a very beautiful area, particularly in autumn, and is still a largely undiscovered treasure. Twisting and turning, rising and falling, the roads throughout the Adelaide Hills offer cameo vistas with bewildering frequency. But no one should venture into this region without a detailed road map, for it is impossible to navigate by simply using one's sense of direction. Altitude is the key to the climate. Mount Lofty and the Piccadilly Valley are a bare 25 minutes drive from the centre of Adelaide, but the contrast in climate throughout much of summer has to be experienced to be believed. The veritable maze of valleys and sub-valleys, with slopes offering every conceivable aspect, means there is as much mesoclimatic variation as one can find anywhere in Australia Read more »
