Grampians got its name because the town founders wanted something that would rhyme with ‘champions’. OK, so that might not be strictly true (or at all true) but it is fitting because this region is filled with champion winemakers.

Vineyards were first planted as far back as 1862 and since then, the local wineries have become renown for producing highly distinguished shiraz, riesling and chardonnay that age well.

The district actually was once called the Great Western Wine Region as it is located in Western Victoria and is bounded by the Grampians National Park on the west and by the Mount Langi Ghiran Range on the east.
