NSW Wine Regions

The 16 wine regions of New South Wales represent a diversity of climate and terroir unequalled in any other Australian state.

From Australia’s oldest continuous wine region – the famous Hunter Valley – to exciting new cool climate regions such as Orange, the Southern Highlands and Tumbarumba, the regions of New South Wales produce wines to appeal to every palate.

As well as meeting passionate winemakers at their stunning cellar doors to learn about and taste the great variety of wines from our state, you can also discover delicious fresh produce and gourmet creations from talented local producers at one of the numerous acclaimed restaurants throughout regional NSW.

You’ll find plenty of things to do and see in the wine regions. Journey high above the vines to view the beautiful landscape from a hot air balloon, play golf among the vineyards or take a Murray River paddle-steamer to a riverside winery. You can even enjoy wine tasting after a morning on the ski slopes at Snowy Vineyard Estate.

There are numerous food, music and wine festivals celebrated throughout the year, so any time is a good time to visit the wine regions of NSW.
