The wine regions of New South Wales stretch from Hastings River in the north to Tumbarumba in the south. Australia’s first state is also home to its oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley, where grapes were first planted in the mid-1800s. This is where you’ll find some of the country’s most famous winemaking names including Tyrrell’s, McWilliam’s and Drayton’s. While the Hunter Valley might be the state’s most famous region, you can’t say you’ve had a true taste of New South Wales wine until you’ve tried a Mudgee Shiraz, Southern Highlands Riesling or New England Chardonnay. It’s in this state you’ll also find the massive Riverina region where De Bortoli’s world famous Noble One is just one of the many exceptional dessert wines produced.
