The Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first wine growing district – with a history stretching back nearly 180 years.
Vines were first planted in 1838, and viticulture spread rapidly through the 1860s and 1870s. However increased demand for fortified wine saw Yarra Valley wine production cease in 1921. Replanting began in the late 1960s and by the early 1990s the area under vine passed the high point of the 19th century.
The Yarra Valley is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate wine producing regions, capable of making classic styles from a wide range of varieties. The Yarra Valley offers fine sparkling wines, exceptional Chardonnay, complex Pinot Noir and world class Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
