About Riverland Wine

The Riverland in South Australia is a long-established, warm climate wine producing region, located east of the Barossa Valley. It extends for 330 km along the Murray River from Paringa to Blanchetown.


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).

The Riverland is the largest wine producing region in Australia, and is home to 1,000 wine grape growers representing 20,600 hectares of vines.

  • 454,202 tonnes of grapes were crushed with Riverland growers producing 364,326 tonnes (80%) of the region’s crush
  • The Riverland supplied 63.4% of the state’s annual crush 
  • 27.2% of the nation’s crush was produced in the Riverland
