Wine is believed to contain beneficial medical properties and to consume it in healthy quantities have proven to boost certain facets of one’s health. For instance, wine is rich in antioxidants and is even believed to contain anti-cancer properties as well as boost cardio health. While the oldest evidence of wine consumption can be traced back several millennia, winemaking has been considered an art that has been refined by civilisations for centuries. While the colour of the wine is an indication of the region it was cultivated in, there are ten major wine regions in the world and the most prominent lie in France, Italy and Spain. These regions produce the famed Merlot, Trebbiano and Grenache while wineries in the United States of America are responsible for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Chardonnay is also produced in Australia whose wine market has been increasing in the past few years.

Therefore, when visiting Australia, wine enthusiasts will find the Adelaide Wine Region a true delight. When staying in Adelaide holiday accommodation, one can explore the famed vineyards in the region including the Barossa, which is, for instance, a mere hour’s drive away from hotels such as Oaks Horizons.

While the Barossa Valley is well known for Riesling as well as Shiraz, other regions such as the Adelaide Plains are home to many wineries as well. For instance, when visiting Barossa, tourists can travel further north and visit Clare Valley as well for it is famous for Riesling and wine enthusiasts can follow the Riesling Trail by bicycle. For those who wish to explore a vineyard or winery closer to the city, Adelaide Hills is only a short drive from the centre of Adelaide. Other vineyards in the Adelaide wine region include those in the Fleurieu Peninsula, Limestone Coast, The Riverland and Kangaroo Island.
