Just over one hour’s leisurely drive from Melbourne is in one of Australia’s premier wine districts and indeed top cool climate regions of the world.
Known as ‘The Place of Mists and Shadow’s to the indigenous Wurundjeri people, there is no more apt description that captures the valleys’ unique positioning and climate with a wine history dating back near 180 years.

With over 70 cellar doors, your choice of experience is limited only by your desire. An exploration can focus on a particular style of your liking with careful selections revealing the winemakers’ varying personalities and interpretations.
