History of Australian Wine
New South Wales was the original start of the Australian wine industry, as the Immigrants landed in Sydney Harbour they brought with them vines from Europe that they planted in what is now known as the Hunter Valley.
One hundred years later at the latter part of the 1890’s wine was being produced not only in the Hunter Valley but also the Barossa and Yarra valleys.
The Early Wines
In the early days the fledgling Australian wine industry primarily focused on fortified wines, the reason for this is that the extra alcohol in the fortified wine protected it from micro-organisms and from turning sour.
