Riverina

The Riverina wine region is situated around the New South Wales town of Griffith and encompasses the surrounding villages of Yenda, Hanwood, Bilbul and Tharbogang as well as the small township of Leeton.

With its flat plains (bordered by the Cocoparra ranges), rich soil, irrigation scheme and Mediterranean climate, the Riverina held all the key factors needed for developing this wine region back in 1913. Although it wasn’t officially established as a growing region until 1998, many of Australia's well known family wineries still headquarter their operations in the Riverina, making award winning wines and producing wines from more alternative grape varieties.

Sometimes referred to as the Engine Room of Australian wine production, the Riverina region has a long history as the backbone of Australian winemaking and is home to some of the country’s largest producers and exporters. Unmatched within Australia for volume of wine production, the region is famous for their dessert wines, particularly Botrytis Semillon. The Riverina is known for producing bulk wines, which comes as no surprise given it’s bigger than all the other regions of New South Wales combined and is the second largest wine producing region in Australia. All up the Riverina region produces 60% of the grapes in New South Wales from over 20,000 hectares of vines; a whopping 25% of Australia's entire grape production.
