Award-winning Australian wineries have been snubbed by a prestigious vineyards award. 

The World’s Best Vineyards award takes into account the best places to ‘taste terrific wines’ across five continents and 18 countries.  

Topping the list for the second year in a row was Zuccardi Valle de Uco in Argentina thanks to its ‘stunning high-altitude wines, brooding behemoth of the Zuccardi winery and the Piedra Infinita Cocina restaurant’. 

But there is no mention of celebrated vineyards in Barossa, the Margaret River or the Hunter Valley.

Lucky third was awarded to Domäne Wachau in Austria, which jumped 19 places from the previous year.  

Australia’s first vineyard made an appearance at 24th place with Penfolds in Adelaide Hills.

‘This is one of South Australia’s finest food and wine experiences – as befits the most famous name in Australian wine,’ the judges said.  

Henschke in the Barossa Valley was right behind it at 25th place dubbed ‘possibly Australia’s most famous vineyard’.   

‘The Henschke Hill of Grace Experience is a must for the wine lover, offering exclusive access to this renowned vineyard,’ it read.
