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.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Murray Darling

Straddling the Murray River in north-west Victoria and western New South Wales, the Murray Darling region is vast, and is the second largest wine producing areas in Australia.

A virtual desert before irrigation and first grape varieties were planted in 1888, and with a long history of wine production and grape growing, Murray Darling provides award-winning wines with well-priced, easy-to-drink styles.

Recently seeing the emergence of smaller 30 boutique wine producers, offering exciting and innovative wines, Murray Darling faces long, hot sunshine hours and coupled with vital irrigation, a variety of warm climate wines are produced, including Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is the primary variety with fruity softness and generosity.

About the brand Zilzie

The Forbes family landed in the Murray Darling region of Australia nearly 100 years ago. After four generations of farming, Ian and Ros Forbes, along with sons Steven and Andrew converted the fields to vineyards in the early 1980. The winery was built in 1999 and the first Zilzie vintage produced in 2000.With a wide range of labels and varieties, Zilzie offers quality wines for any occasion. Searching far afield in regions such as Coonawarra and the Yarra Valley the family sources high quality grapes for their "Regional Collection". With winemaker Hayden Donohue heading the winemaking team, the range regularly receives acclaim as a 'Best Buy' and 'Top Value' and is a staple in Australian households. But as Ros Forbes puts it: It's not just a farm, it's a home. The boys had mud fights and rode BMX bikes in the same soil they now grow Shiraz and Chardonnay in."
