Vancouver, BC | What’s in a region? For starters, each has different soils, climates, temperatures and altitudes. All of these things affect what grapes grow best there and the overall wine ‘style’ that is produced.

At Regional Crush, Wine Australia and house wine will take you on a tour of the regions of Australia to discover each of these ‘places’. Find the minty-ness in Coonawarra’s Cabernets, discover the lime in Eden and Clare Valley Rieslings, uncover the new style of Chardonnay emerging across the country and see if you can pick the regions in our blind Shiraz Challenge at the South Australia Tourism focus table.
