Food & Dining

  • Written by Adam Bennett


Love travel? Enjoy wine? Welcome to Lonely Planet’s Wine Trails: Australia & New Zealand, published this month.

 

This comprehensive companion to 40 weekends of wine-tasting across Australia and New Zealand is the follow-up to Lonely Planet’s best-selling 2015 book, Wine Trails. Meet the regions’ best winemakers, and discover each place, its people and their traditions through the wine that’s made there.

 

A team of wine professionals and enthusiasts, including well-renowned wine critic Huon Hooke and VinoMofo’s Michael Ellis, have written the Australian itineraries, reviewing the most rewarding wineries to visit and the most memorable wines to taste. The featured Australian wine trails are:  

  • ACT: Canberra
  • NSW: Hunter Valley, Mudgee, Orange, Riverina
  • QLD: Granite Belt
  • SA: Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Coonawarra, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale
  • TAS: Coal River Valley, Hobart, Piper’s River, Tamar Valley
  • VIC: Beechworth, Bellarine Peninsula, Heathcote, King Valley, Macedon Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Pyrenees, Rutherglen, Yarra Valley
  • WA: Great Southern, Margaret River, Swan Valley  

Wine Trails: Australia & New Zealand also contains maps, practical details and weekend-long itineraries for each region, where to stay and eat, and - of course - what to drink.

 

Lonely Planet spokesperson and Wine Trails: Australia & New Zealand contributor Chris Zeiher says: “We’ve all experienced it on our travels - when a local wine could not be more perfectly suited to the moment. Tasting wine in the place it was made can be a revelation. It is this personal introduction to wine, in its home, that is at the heart of wine-touring’s appeal.”
