Wines of Aus­tralia

Yachts International - - Sternlines -

Ul­ti­mate Win­ery Ex­pe­ri­ences Aus­tralia of­fers VIP ex­pe­ri­ences at 19 elite winer­ies (out of about 3,000 to­tal) across the con­ti­nent. At the Moo­rilla vine­yard on Tasmania, for in­stance, tast­ings can pair with a pri­vate tour of Aus­tralia’s largest pri­vate art col­lec­tion. Sep­pelts­field in the Barossa Val­ley lets you taste your birth-year wine from the bar­rel, and St. Hugo in the Barossa Val­ley will name a row of vines in your honor, let you craft a red blend and de­liver it bot­tled (cost: $150,000). If you’d rather stay on the yacht near Syd­ney, then the wine can come to you. Our six-bot­tle tast­ing in­cluded a 2012 shi­raz that’s only avail­able at the Pen­folds Mag­ill Es­tate Cel­lar Door on Aus­tralia’s south-cen­tral coast. It tasted per­fectly spice-for­ward as we sipped it near the iconic Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge. ul­ti­matewin­ery­ex­pe­ri­ences.com.au
