The Wine Map of Australia by Max Allen

We’ve seriously been looking for a map like this since we started our Road to Vino adventure! Absolutely awesome! —The Qwoff Boys

Max Allen writes in the map’s introduction:

“Ever since European settlers first poked a few fragile young grapevines into Australian soil in the late 1700s, generation after generation of pioneers and prospectors have coaxed flavour from the land. Over the centuries, many deliciously distinctive wines have emerged, from fine and delicate sparkling wine on the windswept coast of Tasmania to dark and treacly fortified wines in the hot inland vineyards of Rutherglen. Our map charts these unique combinations of country, climate and culture.”

The use of a metallic ink beautifully highlights the landforms, helping both to define the topography and differentiate the wine regions. Also included are subtle symbols that show the precise locations of the country’s 4500-plus vineyards, mapped by industry leaders, VineFinders™.
