For the oenophiliac (wine buff) Australia offers a rich variety of wine styles to tantalise your palette. Grapes grow extremely well in the moister areas of the country, and there are world-renowned wine growing districts in most states (as well as many lesser-known but almost equally-as-good areas.) To add to your enjoyment, many of these areas are in easy reach of the capital cities. Some can even be visited in a few hours, although you'll want longer to enjoy the many wineries on offer.

There is only one thing to be wary of - Australia has a strict blood alcohol limit of 0.05% for the driver of a motor vehicle (ZERO percent for a p-plater or inexperienced driver.) Limit your tasting or appoint a designated driver... or if you prefer, take one of the many professional Winery Tours on offer and let someone else do the driving for you.
