The King Valley wine region in the north-east of Victoria has one of the greatest concentrations of varieties of any wine region in Australia. Whilst there is an Italian bias reflecting the region’s history, King Valley varietals also include premium traditional cool climate wines. There is an abundance of suitable land, with most vineyards established on relatively gentle slopes, typically facing north and north east.
Notably, the King Valley is one of the highest altitude grape growing regions in Australia. A range of microclimates are available from the slightly warmer valley floors to the bracingly cool upper slopes. This
variance in elevation is why the King Valley region can produce such a wide range of wine styles.
