Unlike Europe, Australia is not governed by the strict wine laws imposed on European winegrowers, who are restricted to growing certain grapes in certain areas. The result is that while France has 13 wine growing regions. Australia has in excess of 35. Wines of Australia is a fascinating tour of the major main wine producing areas and provides a detailed region-by-region guide to the country's wineries in Western and Southern Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and Tasmania. Each chapter starts with an overview of the region's history, its pioneers and its development in the future. The text incorporates details of the different wineries, the most widely planted grape varieties, the qualities and tastes of the various wines, together with comprehensive information about soil types, climate aspect, winemaking and wine growing philosophy, grapes used, and where they are most commonly found in Europe. Detailed coloured maps of the regions are included in each section, which highlight both the locations of wineries mentioned and also other recommended ones. Whether you are an established connoisseur. or simply a casual consumer eager to learn more Wines of Australia is the perfect guide.
