Learn more about the Ruffled Feather Wine Region

Ruffled Feather was created from boutique vineyards throughout the South-east Australian wine region. It is renowned as one of the world’s most extensive wine areas geographically, it cuts predominantly across three Australian states – New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. It can also include parts of South Australia and the bottom half of Queensland.

South Eastern Australia is extremely vast and legally became an official labelling term because the wines are crafted from grapes harvested within a number of different wine regions in this area. The wines produced here don’t often exhibit particularly strong characteristics of one particular wine region. The wines are often a blend carefully crafted from the harvests of numerous vineyards.
