Mix up your go-to varieties with the suggestions here, including a style for every palate. Whether you like light-bodied and fresh, full-bodied and red, or something in between, we’ve got an array of alternatives to suit your drinking preferences.

We all have our favourite producers, wine grapes and styles. To evolve our palates and understanding of wine, however, it’s essential to drink widely. In Australia alone, there are thousands of wineries working with hundreds of varieties. To highlight the incredible diversity on our shores, here, we pinpoint some less-common wine grapes and group them according to style, so you can dip into the rich and reds or go straight for the bright and whites.
