Riverland

The Riverland region is responsible for producing large volumes of good quality and good valued wines. The Riverland wine industry was made possible by the irrigation system established in the 1880s by brothers George and William Chaffey that turned near desert into ideal viticulture land. The Riverland is home to large producers capable of supplying bulk wine. Angoves, BRL Hardy, Kingston Estate, Normans Wines, Mildara Blass, Renmano, Southcorp and Yalumba all have a big stake in the region, producing red and white table wine for the cask market as well as the quality bottled market and fortified wines and brandy. The region has a typically continental climate; long, hot, dry days with cool nights. Rainfall is mainly in winter hence the need for irrigation. The main wine styles: White – Chardonnay; Red – Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
