Australia

Australia has been very successful at crafting international grape varieties into unique and new styles. Commercial viticulture was established during the early part of the 19th century.

It has a diverse range of climates: a tropical weather pattern affecting the north, while the southern half of the country enjoys a less extreme band of warm to hot weather oscillating between 25 and 35 degrees.
