Australians don't need to compromise when it comes to finding the perfect destinations for wine holidays in their own country because Down Under is packed with some of the greatest wine-producing areas in the world.
One excellent place to try some top-notch wine is the Clare Valley, which is about 80 miles north of Adelaide. The area's cool climate makes it a near-ideal location to produce dry Rieslings, according to Telegraph.co.uk. The secret to the region's excellent wines may be its elevation, which rises to 1,300 feet. In addition to excellent Rieslings the area, once known for copper and silver, produces some very nice red wines.
Western Australia also has a number of great places for those heading out on wine holidays. About a three-hour drive south of Perth is the Margaret Valley that is well known for its Bordeaux-style white and red wines, according to the news source.
The most popular winery in the region is the Leeuwin, which features its own restaurant and has hosted performances from such entertainers as Tom Jones and Kiri Te Kanawa.
