The topography of this region is flat which is suitable for large scale, low cost viticulture. Warm dry summers necessitate irrigation but the risk of fungal diseases is very low. One suspects that much of the production here is vinified elsewhere and sold under the generic tag of South East Australia.
There are however some vineyards and wineries that stand out from this picture, many of those involved have Italian heritage and a leaning towards Italian varieties.
Joe Grillo of Primo Estate started in this region where he made a name for himself with La Biondina Colombard. Nowadays Primo Estate is located in McLaren Vale.
The Adelaide Plains Wine Region is easily visited from Adelaide as the vineyards start in the outer suburbs of the city.
Please add a comment if you know of any wineries or varieites I have missed.
