With its varied microclimates and soil types, the western region of Victoria produces an assortment of wines and covers a vast geographical area. Winemakers in the Pyrenees offer excellent, dry, red wine varieties such as cabernet sauvignon, while the Grampians region is renowned for its shiraz. Enjoy the delectable wine and take in the spectacular scenery of the region, including the natural beauty of landmarks such as the Great Dividing Range, scenic lookouts in Halls Gap and the Avoca Chinese Gardens.

PYRENEES

With more than 150 under vine, the wineries of the Pyrenees region thrive on the brown loamy sand soils and mid-lying valleys. The terroir offers pockets of red sandstone that provide flavoursome white varietals that showcase a rich, mid-palate wine. Greatly affected by the varying seasons, the Pyrenees is best known for its shiraz that highlights sweet and rich fruit flavours. This bright palate changes in irregularly cool years, which produces a more peppery finish that’s most commonly associated with the northern and eastern regions of Victoria. As one of the most important producers of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz varietal wines and their mixes, the Pyrenees region of Victoria is a pinnacle of Australia’s winemaking industry.
