Regional Victoria is renowned for its beautiful, lush country side and its superior wineries, and Western Victoria is at the heart of this. Western Victoria includes the wine regions of the Grampians and Ballarat. The closest to central Melbourne is Ballarat, a truly beautiful town in itself. If you venture a little further north-west into regional Victoria, you will end up in the Pyrenees Mountains and wine region.
The Pyrenees wine region is all that you imagine and more. The region’s landscape, food and wine reflect its French roots. This region is the best place to visit if you’re looking to do some taste testing. With 44 vineyards, you will be sure to find a white or red wine to call your favourite! Mount Avoca make some quality Victorian wine and Redbank Winery makes the famous Sally’s Paddock wine.
Wineries in the Grampians wine region date way back to the 1860s and to this day still produce some of the most premium, well-known wines varieties. If you have access to a car you will be at an advantage as there are plenty of historic routes within the area. Jump from one winery to the next and admire the beautiful landscapes along the way.
