Alpine Valleys

No need to head to France to ski the alps and drink wine before noon. Exhibit A: the Alpine Valleys in northeast Victoria.

Behold, wine tourists. Soaring mountains, dramatic valleys, pristine air and streams for the win (and the wine)! A getaway of gourmet indulgence awaits.

Rich, earthy reds like cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot are indicative of the elegant, fruit-intense wines on offer. However, local cellar doors have many offerings to show off and you will find a gratifying assortment of varieties including chardonnay, sauvignon vert, sauvignon blanc, riesling and nebbiolo.
