It is certainly no secret that Australia is home to beautiful wine regions, from Hunter Valley to the Margaret River — even Tasmania offers wine tasting! But it’s far-flung locale and ample other draws, from its beaches to fantastic city life, have kept the country from becoming a really wine-focused destination.

So, here are a handful of reasons why Australia should be your next wine tasting destination; you’ve done Napa, you’ve tasted Tuscan chianti straight from the source, and you’ve spent a week swirling and spitting in Bordeaux. It’s time for new terrain.

Hunter Valley

Arguably the best-known wine region of Australia is the Hunter Valley, just a few hours’ drive from Sydney. Rolling hills covered in vines are the backdrop for tasting local semillon, sauvignon, and shiraz, and with winter approaching in Australia (technically June through August), it’s the perfect time to start sampling. The valley is divided into the Upper and Lower Hunter Valley, across which there are more than 70 wineries that open their doors for either "cellar door" tastings or full winery tours.

Some of the best wineries in the region to visit include David Hook for sauvignon blanc, the long-standing Hungerford Hill at the start of the valley, and Audrey Wilkinson for their well-loved rosé. The best sustenance in Hunter Valley can be found at Elizabeth’s (located inside the iconic Mount Pleasant Estate winery), Harvest Restaurant (in the Hope Estate winery), or Esca Bimbadgen.

While there, book into the rustic and romantic Spicers Vineyards Estate or the Peppers Convent Hunter Valley, which is a converted and renovated convent from 1909 with rolling vineyards.

Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley definitely gives the Hunter Valley a run for its money. A few hours from Adelaide, the Barossa Valley has the stunning rolling hills and lush greenery of Hunter Valley, but a richer history. It was proclaimed a prime wine-growing region more than 150 years ago and was largely cultivated by English settlers in the region. The region is best known for its cabernets, sauvignons, shiraz, and grenache, as well as reislings and even semillon. And with more than 80 wineries, there are ample opportunities to sip, swirl, and spit.

Some of the best wineries to check out in the region include Bethany Wines for dessert wines,

Peter Lehmann for rosé and their gorgeous surroundings, and Eden Hall for reisling, shiraz, and cabernet sauvignon. Find some of the valley’s best food at the classic 1918 Bistro & Grill, Vintners Bar & Grill, and Lyndoch Bakery.

Margaret River

A few hours from Perth, Margaret River offers endless wine tasting options with its own distinct landscape. This is wine tasting on the coast; it’s akin to California’s more laid-back wine regions, with locals’ penchants for yoga, surfing, healthful cuisine, art galleries, and the salty smell of the ocean in the air. It’s also the newest of these three Australian wine regions, though it now boasts more than 120 wineries to visit. The area specializes in cabernet and chardonnay, as well as viogniers and shiraz.

Stop for tastings at some of the region’s best wineries, like Leeuwin Estate for cabernet blends, the award-winning Vasse Felix for their cabernet sauvignon, and Cullen Wines for sauvignon blanc or semillon. While there, refuel at Flutes Restaurant on the Brookland Valley Winery’s property, at the restaurant at Vasse Felix, or at the casual-chic Bathers Café.

You can do no better than to book a room at either the luxurious and secluded Cape Lodge or at the relaxing, Zen-like Empire Retreat. (Photo courtesy of Flickr/CCFoodTravel.com)


Recipes to go with wine tasting

I'm working with a friend who has booked a wedding shower with me for her sister. We're setting up the registry, etc. The mother of the bride would like to have a wedding shower for her which is more of a wine tasting type of event. Does anyone have any suggestions for recipes that I could demo or make to go with this theme?

You could do a cheese and chocolate fondue (both go great with wine!). Use the simple additions medium bowls in the hospitality stand. (If you need the recipes for the cheddar cheese and chocolate/caramel fondue, let me know.) Place the fondue in the bowls and use the petite squares for tealight candles under each of them to keep the fondue warm.

On either side, use the 3 tier stands. For the cheese fondue, use french bread, ham chunks and fresh broccoli. For the chocolate, use pound cake, apples, bananas and strawberries. You can also use the Large SA bowl in the woven basket in the center of the table filled with preztels (they also go great with cheese and/or chocolate).

Lastly, use the small bowl caddy for forks and toothpicks. You'll have an incredibly elegant, yet simple and inexpensive, display of products and food.

Thanks for the great ideas. I talked with my friend (the matron-of-honor) and she thinks her mom will love any or all of those ideas. I appreciate all of your suggestions and might use them at other wedding shows in the future if I can't use some this time.

I haven't had any trouble with blackened dishes using the Medium Bowls. they sit up high enough up away from the flame. I do not recommend using the Small Bowls unless you have the discontinued Fondue Accessory Kit. I've used the new Simple Addition Stands 3 times for this fondue set up and it's worked beautifully!

As for serving it, you can do it a couple of ways. The simplest and most comfortable way for everyone is to provide a small ladel in each of the fondues. That way, no dippers accidentally get dropped in the sauce. You can use the discontinued fondue forks, but I really try to stay away from using products that people can no longer purchase. Forks and/or toothpicks work fine too.

I've attached a fun document that I usually print out and have at the end of the table for folks to read as they're eating. It has the history of fondue and some fun etiquette and "rules", as well as a few of the recipes.

You could do a cheese and chocolate fondue (both go great with wine!). Use the simple additions medium bowls in the hospitality stand. (If you need the recipes for the cheddar cheese and chocolate/caramel fondue, let me know.) Place the fondue in the bowls and use the petite squares for tealight candles under each of them to keep the fondue warm.

On either side, use the 3 tier stands. For the cheese fondue, use french bread, ham chunks and fresh broccoli. For the chocolate, use pound cake, apples, bananas and strawberries. You can also use the Large SA bowl in the woven basket in the center of the table filled with preztels (they also go great with cheese and/or chocolate).

Lastly, use the small bowl caddy for forks and toothpicks. You'll have an incredibly elegant, yet simple and inexpensive, display of products and food.

Thanks for the great ideas. I talked with my friend (the matron-of-honor) and she thinks her mom will love any or all of those ideas. I appreciate all of your suggestions and might use them at other wedding shows in the future if I can't use some this time.

I haven't had any trouble with blackened dishes using the Medium Bowls. they sit up high enough up away from the flame. I do not recommend using the Small Bowls unless you have the discontinued Fondue Accessory Kit. I've used the new Simple Addition Stands 3 times for this fondue set up and it's worked beautifully!

As for serving it, you can do it a couple of ways. The simplest and most comfortable way for everyone is to provide a small ladel in each of the fondues. That way, no dippers accidentally get dropped in the sauce. You can use the discontinued fondue forks, but I really try to stay away from using products that people can no longer purchase. Forks and/or toothpicks work fine too.

I've attached a fun document that I usually print out and have at the end of the table for folks to read as they're eating. It has the history of fondue and some fun etiquette and "rules", as well as a few of the recipes.

    Do you think of such a unique sentence?

    You are not right. I can defend my position. Email me at PM, we will talk.

    I confirm. And I ran into this.
