explore our regions

With adventurous winemaking aspirations to explore new viticultural landscapes, Eddie McDougall has guided The Flying Winemaker oenologists into international regions, including; Barolo, Languedoc-Roussillon, Ningxia, Wairarapa, Hawkes Bay and Stellenbosch.

King Valley

Located in the North Eastern alpine districts of Victoria, Australia. The King Valley is a cool climate region that has become highly regarded for producing some of the country’s best expression of Italian varietals. Rich in winemaking history and a unique migrant culture the
King Valley is one of Australia’s most forward-thinking and fastest growing wine regions.

Margaret River

Set along the famous West Australian coastline, Margaret River is Australia’s fine wine capital. With a consistent breeze from the Indian Ocean and its Mediterranean growing conditions the grapes grown in this part of the world are usually destined for great wines. Undoubtedly one of the world’s best regions for producing Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Rosé.


Producing only 7% of New Zealand’s entire annual production, the Wairarapa is located on south east corner of the North Island. The region’s first plantings date back to the 1800s and is now considered as the country’s most revered region for premium Pinot Noir. The great vineyards of the region are planted on the ancient alluvial river terraces allowing the vines to produce age-worthy and concentrated wines.

Hawkes Bay

New Zealand’s second-largest wine region, Hawkes Bay has been an abundant source of fine wine since 1851 when vines were first planted and since has gained a significant international reputation for producing some of the country’s best wines. Capable of producing a wide range of varieties to a very high standard, Hawke’s Bay is best known for its Red Blends and Chardonnay but aromatic whites are consistently good and Syrah is also incredibly impressive


Stellenbosch is the most famous wine-producing region in South Africa. The town, in Western Cape's Coastal Region, is steeped in wine-producing history and is home to the country’s best-known wine estates. Vineyards cover the gently rolling hills of Stellenbosch, from Helderberg in the south to the lower slopes of Simonsberg Mountain in the north. This terrain allows for a lot of variation in wine styles, and microclimates suitable for the cultivation of all sorts of grape varieties can be found among the exposed hills and sheltered valleys.
