Wineries in Sydney

Are there any wineries in Sydney? I will be staying downtown at the end of August and would love to try some australian wine. I know about Hunter Valley, but I was wondering if there was anything closer?

The Hunter Valley is as close to Sydney as you will find Wineries - ir's worth a trip. There are however many very good Australian wines found in all bottle / liquor stores as well as good restaurants..

Hi Katie88f,

If you really don't have time to visit the Hunter (or any of the other New South Wales wine regions, for that matter), there's a business called the Australian Wine Centre at Circular Quay that offers organised tastings and claims to provide an experience of a wide range of Australia's many wine regions. Have a look at their website for details.

Enjoy your stay in Sydney!

There are wineries on the outskirts of Sydney; obviously as the city rapidly expands they get pushed further and further away from the centre. However, it's not really a recognised wine area as such, and I'd imagine most of the wineries provide grapes for generic blends although 1 or 2 may have cellar doors. The previous poster is correct that the Hunter Region is probably the closest recognised wine area. If you're still determined to track down nearby wineries, have a look at:

On the other hand, there are plenty of wine bars in Sydney where you can sample a great variety of Australian wines:

At the moment I'm liking dry Rieslings from Clare Valley & Orange, and some Pinot Noirs from the colder Victorian regions and Tasmania.

Thanks much for the link to the wine bar article. These look interesting and I'll be sure to check out a few during my Sept. visit.

Wine Odyssey is a great place in The Rocks for an introduction to Australian wines & opportunity to taste a wide variety.

It's become a "must" on my Sydney tour with visitors. The owners are enthusiastic & professional ambassadors for our wine industry and just do a very, very good job. The information side includes a video about the industry, self-serve tastings, a 'nose' room, and is complemented by interesting menus for snacks, lunch & dinner; set in a beautiful heritage building.

I'd certainly second Wine Odyssey. They sell & provide tastes of only Australian wines, and it's a great way to get stuck in to some of the best that Australia has to offer.

The Southern Highlands wines are quite impressive and about 1 hour 20 minutes from Eastern Sydney. Here is a link: http://www.highlandsnsw.com.au/wineries/

SHW produce excellent wine: http://www.southernhighlandwines.com/
