A guide to Australia’s top 5 wine regions to travel to by private jet

Throughout the year, Australia produces over one billion litres of wine. With that said, the month of May welcomes the return of the wonderful annual celebration of Aussie Wine Month, hosted Down Under. The four week long festivity celebrates the quality discoveries and diversity of fine local wines across Australia.

Famously renowned for its hearty reds, tasty whites and variety of rich flavours, the Australian wine scene has, in more recent years, become one of the country’s most tempting attractions. So, as well as the Sydney Opera House and the Great Barrier Reef, make time for the home-grown grapes that are stealing the show and enticing visitors to join in with the celebrations.

As a result of the country’s upsurge to international wine superstardom, an abundance of luxury properties throughout Australia have begun populating the vineyards and wine regions. With this range of grand locations in which to stay, wine devotees can swirl, sip and savour in the utmost comfort. To start their trip, wine-loving enthusiasts are choosing to reach these unforgettable experiences through the appeal of travelling by private jet. The best way to go about finding a professional charter service that will only enhance your experience is by finding a reputable company, such as Chapman Freeborn where you will be assured a quality, A-list service that will get you there in style.

When visiting the abundant wine regions, one of the highlights is the offering of an unforgettable variety of the finest foods, as well as the wines. The cream of the crop when it comes to wineries serve nothing below perfection, with outstanding culinary standards, the freshest of produce, and top quality ingredients to be appreciated by all lovers of the finer things in life. Below is a guide to the top 5 Australian vineyards.

Queensland 

The Sunshine State was once branded too hot to be able to grow quality produce. As it is located within close proximity of the tropics, many believed it was unable to provide the grapes for outstanding wines. However, Queensland is in fact able to deliver high standards of grape, grown in picturesque areas, which are a delight to visit. Sip some of the most stunning flavours here, in the form of Chardonnay, Shiraz and Viognier throughout the year.

Victoria

Despite it being the second smallest state Down Under, Victoria is home to the most number of individual wineries in the country. Back in the 1880’s it was the largest wine producing state in Australia, and now in 2015, due to the diversity of its regional climate, Victoria allows for production of the highest variety of wine types imaginable. This ranges from the flavours of Pinot Noir, to the highest quality sparkling wines and savoury tastes of Shiraz.

New South Wales

This wine region close to Sydney marks the original development of vines in Australia; New South Wales has the longest history of grape growing out of all the wine regions. The late James Busby, better known as the “father” of the Australian wine industry, demonstrated his collection of 362 vineyards originally planted across the Botanical Gardens, which has now increased and moved in geographic location, making their way to other large wine regions of Australia such as Victoria and in the south of the country.

South Australia

Responsible for nearly half of the yearly wine production of the country, South Australia is arguably the most important wine region, as well as being home to some of the oldest vineyards in Australia. Although it is the driest of the country’s states, the nearby river Murray supplies the region with its water so that the vineyard is able to produce only the best quality wines for its visitors.

Tasmania

The last of the top 5 Australian vineyards, but by no means least, is Tasmania. This pristine state located off the southern coast is famous for producing premium, hand-made Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. If you are a fan of the finest sparkling wines, then this region is perfect for you. Many of the best sparkling wines are prepared and sourced in Tasmania, providing delicate flavours that only the experts will appreciate.

  1. Wouldn’t a private jet tour of wineries be fun?? I’ve visited South Australian and Victorian wineries but we’ve never visited a Queensland vineyard. I must fix that.

  2. I’ve visited wineries in Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT and South Australia. It’s my goal to get to Tasmania and visit the Pinot Noir wineries xx

  3. We’re so lucky with all of the amazing wines we have here, aren’t we!!! Love it!

  4. It’ll be great to go to all the wineries in Australia with a private jet and all paid by a sponsor…. that’s a great business trip!!! 😀 I would be happy if I could visit even one place in this list. I keep my hopes up! 🙂

  5. This is the tour my husband will love make ! It’s absolutely amazing !

  6. Sounds like a must do trip. Jet setting it from vineyard to vineyard sounds blissful and much better than my idea of a bicycle ride through the vineyards in Italy. It all started out okay at the first two vineyards but thats when it started to go down hill or at least I was going down hill very fast and well… you might know how the rest all went. Take care

  7. Tasmania is such a special place, but then all of these look rather special!

  8. Oh my. Wineries by private jet…now that’s something I’d LOVE to do!

  9. Wine tours by private jet! Just wow! Another thing to add to my Bucket List.

  10. Super cool way to wine tour…. Although, I do gotta ask, why no ACT wines on the list?
