Celebrating Australia’s National Day with the Best Australian Wines

G'day mate! On the 26th of January we go to the land down under to celebrate Australia Day, which marks the arrival of Britain’s first fleet to Australia in 1788. Celebrations reflect the nation’s diverse society and landscape, and are denoted by community and family events, reflections on history, community awards, and ceremonies welcoming new members of the community. It is also meant for you to sleep in, go for a swim, kick a footie around, have a BBQ, and enjoy a meal over quality wine.

In conjunction with Australia’s National Day, Wine Connection presents to you the best of Australian wines. These wines were specially hand-picked from the Barossa Valley region northeast of Adelaide, to the fertile banks of Western Australia. You’re in for a treat, as these uniquely delicious wines will leave you thirsting for more.
