Public Tour Programme
Due to the uncertainty caused by Victoria’s Covid-19 situation, we have suspended our winter puclic tour schedule. We can’t wait to show you all the beautiful sights and sounds of this wonderful state when the weather warms up and normality returns!
THE YARRA VALLEY
One of Victoria’s premier tipples regions is located an hour’s drive to the east of Melbourne. The Yarra Valley was established almost 200 years ago, with the first vines planted in 1838, where viticulture spread rapidly through the region.
Since it’s first plantings, there are now over 85 cellar doors open to the public, plus other vineyards that make wine that do not have a cellar door.
Many cellar doors have extended their range to include gin, beer and cider – the winemakers don’t always want to drink wine!
The Yarra Valley is split into three main highways – the Melba Highway, Maroondah Highway, and the Warburton Highway. There is a huge difference in the beverages produced from one sub-region to another.
The Mornington Peninsula is a maritime cool-climate wine region in Victoria, located just over an hour south east of Melbourne.
The Peninsula is much younger than the Yarra Valley, and was only established in the 1970s. With 45 years under their belts, they are producing some delicious Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Pinot Grigio and Syrah in a much smaller presence.
Mornington Peninsula is certainly making a splash in the wine world; vineyards winning awards, plus interesting and different wine making techniques are being used more and more frequently. As well as award-winning distilleries and breweries.
Although the cellar doors are smaller, there’s almost a more secretive air to The Peninsula – the cellar doors tend to be hidden away, for us to find, like hidden gems.
The Bellarine is also known as the Geelong wine region – it is similar to The Mornington Peninsula as it’s also a maritime cool-climate wine region in Victoria.
Almost as old as the Yarra Valley, Bellarine Peninsula wines are showcasing amazing depth of colour, bouquet and flavour in their wines. Their maritime air also influences their distilleries and breweries, with some big brands coming up in the region.
Similar to the Yarra Valley and Mornington, The Bellarine is also known for Chardonnay and Syrah (cool climate Shiraz). The Bellarine also makes delectable Rieslngs, Pinot Gris’ and Sauvignon Blancs.
The bay breezes and stunning scenery over the Southern Ocean make The Bellarine Peninsula a fabulous region to immerse yourself in great live music, with a great glass of wine.
