The Geelong wine region refuses to be pigeon-holed. Is it dominated by a maritime port? A valley? A surf coast? The answer is it is all these things and more.
The Bellarine is a shelter of Port Phillip Bay and an ideal incubator of cool climate wines.
The Moorabool Valley has a terroir dominated by limestone that tends to produce more unusual wine varieties.
The Surf Coast is part of Victoria’s Great Ocean Road and its wines are hardy survivors of vineyards that constantly take a beating from the Bass Strait weather.
As you may have guessed, the wine varieties you will find at the many cellar doors are a real mixed case: shiraz, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, riesling, rosé, gewürztraminer, merlot, primitivo, gamay, carmenere … you get the picture.
