Grape vines in the Upper Yarra region of the renowned Yarra Valley.
Typically a cool climate, the Yarra Valley is best known for producing premium Pinot Noir & Chardonay, though due to the vast area the Yara Valley encompasses, a number of “micro climates” are present, which means the valley can produce many different wine varietals, including (to name but two) Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz, which is usually associated more with warmer growing regions.
The vines pictured here are Chardonnay, covered prior to harvest to protect the precious fruit from hungry birds. Less fruit = less wine!
The majority of wineries in the Yarra Valley have cafes & restaurants or serve platters, which creates a complete “wine & dine” experience for visitors, and an opportunity to relax & fully take in the stunning surroundings & atmosphere.
A mere hours’ drive from Melbourne, isn’t it time you visited the Yarra Valley?
