Tourist Info

Victoria's north east has been producing world-renowned wines since the 19th century.

When you visit the vineyards of Rutherglen and Wahgunyah, Milawa and Oxley you are face to face with some of the great names in wine making anywhere in the world.

You will find wineries almost everywhere here, in fact more than 30 of them, on the plains and tucked into the valleys and hills. Some are large, some small, each with something a little special to offer the explorer.

There is an enormous range of varieties and styles, everything from robust the red variety known as Durif to elegant whites. And there are magnificent fortified wines here too, the Muscats and Tokays for which the district is world famous. Don't forget the sherries and madeiras.

In the upper reaches of the King River valley there are small wineries producing excellent cool climate wines and others as far afield as Bright.

One of the great things about the winemakers here is their willingness to talk with you, to share their experience and delight in making wines.

At some vineyards you can take a tour of the wineries themselves and get first hand knowledge of the process of winemaking. These are usually by appointment.

There are museums dedicated to the grape and to the agricultural wealth of these fertile Murray River pastures and their graceful country homes, some of which have been turned into wonderful places to stay.

Don't forget the food experience of the region. It is a celebration of fine produce, much of which is grown in the region.

A visit to the north-east is a great way to indulge in one of the world's great pastimes - wining and dining in bucolic bliss.
