A GOOD DROP

Winemakers in the Heart of Victoria are passionate about their craft and equally as talented. With century-old varieties, exciting new drops, distinctive regional characteristics and award winning reputations, the Heart of Victoria is truly a wine lover’s paradise!

Enjoy hand-crafted wines, delicious platters of local produce and beautiful views when you visit one of the many cellar doors around the region. From the larger and better known wineries to the historic family owned and operated wineries, each cellar door is utterly unique and has a beautiful story just waiting to be shared. Experience a warm welcome wherever you go and sample some exquisite wines that are grown, harvested and made with love.
Behold some seriously good wine where the finest drops on offer will entice just about any wine lover! The excellent climate, majestic waterways and rich alluvial soil of the region work together to produce some of the best wines not just in Victoria but across the nation. Renowned signature varieties such as marsanne and shiraz are complemented perfectly by lesser known favourites like viognier, roussane and sangiovese. Of course, don’t forget the sparkling!
Immerse yourself fully in the wine tasting experience by talking to the winemaker, where you will hear their stories, experience some of their finest work and maybe even discover a new favourite. Or, take the time to relax a little and explore all that is on offer at your own pace. Dine at one of the many wineries in the Heart of Victoria in which restaurants will tailor the wine list to suit each course, proving how the combination of excellent wine and delicious food is simply irresistible. Be entertained with live music, local art and stunning views, or feel free to soak up the atmosphere with a relaxing walk in an inviting garden. There is an endless list of ever-changing activities just waiting to be enjoyed at cellar doors and wineries across the Heart of Victoria.
If wine isn’t your forte, keep an eye out for a locally brewed artisan beer, cider or distilled spirit at the many wonderful and unique watering holes across the region.
