Ladies and gents, please be upstanding for Australia’s first wine producing hub The Yarra Valley Wine Region.
The Yarra Valley Wine Region is abundant in many things; wineries, orchards, grazing pastures, fine food, restaurants and cafes. If you could name one thing it is distinctly lacking … that one thing would not be visitors from Melbourne. It’s only an hour’s drive from the Victorian capital to the Yarra Valley in the foot of the luscious Dandenong Ranges.
Winemaking in this region is not only rich with 180 years of experience and bursting with traditional cool climate knowledge, it’s also considered progressive and a bastion of innovative, modern viticultural practices. It has an international reputation as the origin of world class Methode Champenoise sparkling wines, chardonnay, pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon and shiraz.
Eat and drink your way through Victoria, from the renowned wineries of the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley to Melbourne’s pop-up restaurants and the Murray’s scenic riverside eateries. Tantalise the senses at inner city pubs, laneway restaurants, hatted dining rooms and homely country hotels. And wash it all down with a pint from a rustic craft brewery.
Come for the wine, stay for the wine.
