Ancient red soils on the banks of the mighty Murray River;
the Riverland is one of our most significant and innovative wine regions.

Home to Flourishing Vines and Innovative Winemakers

With ancient red soils, sandy loams, long sunshine hours and low humidity, the Riverland is abundant with flourishing vines and innovative winemaking. Through the region runs South Australia’s mighty Murray River, the lifeblood of the community of grape growers and winemakers. The conditions are prime for traditional varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Chardonnay, but opens the door to explore other exciting alternative varieties such as those found in the Southern Mediterranean. Taking full advantage of the warm and dry climate, the Riverland leads the way in sustainable viticulture, winemaking, research and technology.
