Wine, Beer & Spirits
1 in every 4 glasses of Australian wine are made in the Riverina
No trip to Griffith is complete without a visit to some of the city’s wonderful wineries. The region’s wine industry has a strong heritage of Australian pioneers and Italian immigrants who saw the potential of the Mediterranean climate, Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme and the rich red soil of the Riverina. From large establishments to boutique outfits, the friendly cellar door staff will guide you through the tastings of their regional and award-winning wines and many of the wineries offer picturesque gardens for you to relax in with picnic tables and barbeque facilities.
Southern NSW is also known for producing supreme malting barley for beer making in both Australia and overseas, and Griffith now produces some of Australia’s best easy drinking, fresh and crisp craft beers recognised for flavour and quality.
Experience our locally brewed craft beer at one of our many local eateries or pubs. Taste locally distilled gin and whiskey in Griffith or venture a little further “down the road” to Whitton and experience guided whiskey tastings or craft beer paddles from brewers who use small batch artisanal malts from locally grown and regionally sourced grains in NSW’s Riverina.
