Grape and wine regions of the world

Information on each of Australia’s wine regions is available from the Australian Wine website and Wine Australia’s booklet Discover Australian wine – regions and varieties (pdf download).

The geographical indications (GIs) of Australia boundaries (wine zones, regions and subregions) can be found on the Wine Australia’s geographical indications webpage. Data for use in GIS/mapping applications is available from the Wine Australia’s open data hub. Each state government also provide customisable mapping tools: ACT, NSW, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia.

The Wine Australia National Vineyard Scan report provides total vineyard area by GI, geolocating all wine-grape vineyards using aerial imagery.

A national map detailing all of Australia’s wine regions (pdf download) is available from Wine Australia, along with maps for individual state, wine zones and wine regions.

The Climate Atlas details climate projections for Australia’s wine regions, including information about how the climate may change in the near-, mid- and long-term time horizons (out to 2100).

Wine maps of the world are available from Wine Folly, Vinodiversity, DeLong and benoitfrance.

From 1999 to 2004, Dr Peter Dry published a series of articles in the Wine Industry Journal (now Wine & Viticulture Journal) profiling key grapegrowing regions across the world. While it is some time since these articles were published, the information they contain is still highly relevant today. The full set of articles is reproduced here with permission from the publisher, Winetitles.
