Located just a short drive from Australia’s foodie capital of Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is one of Australia's foremost cool climate regions. The regional emphasis on the quality and flavour of the wines has spread to the local produce grown and tended in the same fertile soil, making the region a little slice of food and wine paradise. The Yarra Valley is now also home to a bold and exciting new breed of revolutionary winemakers who are pushing the boundaries of grape growing and winemaking. Tradition, innovation, natural beauty and exceptional produce combine to make Yarra Valley one of Australia’s, and the world’s, most exciting, dynamic and vibrant wine regions.
Australia’s first wine region is all about peeling back layers of discovery.

Dairies producing exceptional Australian cheese, chocolatiers making delectable sweet treats, artisanal smokehouses producing artisanal delights and wineries crafting some of Australia’s best wines. Heaven!
