In 1838 the first vines were planted in Victoria’s oldest wine region, the Yarra Valley. During the mid to late 1800s plantings continued however due to the growing popularity of fortified wines the Yarra Valley ceased to produce wine by the end of 1921.
 
It wasn’t until 1963 that winemaking activity relaunched with the planting of vines at Wantirna Estate and was subsequently followed over the next decade with the emergence of other now iconic wineries such as Mount Mary, Yarra Yering, Warramate, Seville Estate, Chateau Yarrinya (now De Bortoli), Yarra Burn, Morgan Vineyards and the re-establishment of two of the valleys’original founding wineries St Huberts and Yeringberg.
 
Since the mid 80s the Yarra Valley has experienced solid growth and is now recognised as one of the worlds premium cool climate wine regions. Due to our regions varied microclimates the Yarra Valley has the ability to produce outstanding examples of Sparkling Wines, Riesling, Chardonnay, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The regions varieties are not limited to the styles that have just been outlined.
 
Located an easy one hour drive from the Melbourne CBD the Yarra Valley is perfectly situated for a short day trip and with a plethora of outstanding restaurants, cafes and world-class Wine the Yarra valley will have you coming back for more.
