About Riverland Wine

The Riverland in South Australia is a long-established, warm climate wine-producing region, located east of the Barossa Valley, extending for 330 meandering kilometres along the Murray River. It is the largest Australian wine region by size, number of growers, volume of crush, and wine grape varieties. As such it is incredibly important to the Australian wine industry in terms of scale, economic contribution, diversity, export value, technology and structural change, and innovation.

Riverland Wine is the face of the Riverland wine industry and proudly represents both South Australian Riverland winegrape growers and wineries. It is the union of the Riverland Winegrape Growers Association (RWGA) and the Riverland Wine Industry Development Council (RWIDC) after the two groups combined in 2010.

Riverland Wine designs and advocates strategy that covers a range of key areas, and most importantly pursues and influences outcomes that will benefit the Riverland community, environment and economy.
