Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Tasmania

Apart from being the most southerly wine region in Australia, Tasmania has among the coolest growing subregions with the potential to make distinctly different wines than in the rest of the country.

Most well known for cool-climate varietals like Pinot noir and Chardonnay (thus sparkling too), Sauvignon Blanc smaller plantings of Riesling, Cabernet and Pinot Gris (more commonly Pinot labelled Pinot Grigio)

Historically, Tasmania can lay claim to being the founder of both the Victorian and South Australian wine industries as William Henty sailed from Launceston to Portland (in Victoria) in 1834 and planted grape cuttings there. Though not conclusively proven, it's believed that John Hack planted vines in South Australia in 1837, closely followed in 1838 by John Reynell.

Warmer vintages (possibly attributable to global warming) has had positive effects on region's industry, allowing grapes in recent vintages to achieve full phenolic ripeness, making for vibrant wines that have been widely accepted as world class.

Pipers River

Pipers River is the northernmost wine-producing region on the island state of Tasmania in Australia. The region enjoys a maritime climate, with plenty of hours of sunshine, moderate temperatures from the breezes off the Bass Strait and from the Pipers River itself, and valley slopes that help protect the grapes from threatening frosts. Soils here are deep, crumbly, and free-draining. This combination of elements provides favourable conditions for late-ripening grape varieties and cool-climate wine production. The primary red-wine variety in Pipers River is Pinot Noir, and the key white varieties are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio. Varietal Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines are fresh and elegant, and the region also has a burgeoning reputation for high-quality sparkling wines.

About the brand Kreglinger

Since its foundation in 1797, Kreglinger Wine Estates has been delicately crafting fine wine, spreading its vines from Antwerp to Southern Australia. While the suave and sophisticated European influences of our heritage remain, their Australian portfolio of wines proudly captures the unique qualities of the land they now call home. From the vineyards in the pristine island state of Northern Tasmania, to the isolated coastal plains of Mt Benson in South Australia, Kreglinger has dedicated itself to being at the forefront of the Australian wine industry.

The legacy of George and Christian Kreglinger began in Belgium, two brothers who dared to dream and began a family company which still holds trade registration number one in Antwerp to this day. In 1893, the family's group of companies extended to Australia, establishing Kreglinger Australia.

In 2000, Kreglinger Australia diversified into wine production with the acquisition of the majority ownership of Pipers Brook and Norfolk Rise Vineyards.

Nestled in the heart of Tasmanian wine country, Pipers Brook Vineyard in the Tamar region is home to some of Australia’s most sought after cool climate wines. Their Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Sparkling wines have become a hallmark of Tasmanian wine that every Australian wine connoisseur must try.
