The Yarra Valley, one of the world’s prime grape-growing regions, is home to an amazing panorama of vineyards and fertile farmland. The Yarra Valley wine region is recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate wine regions, producing a wide range of classic wines.
Undoubtedly the best known wine country in Victoria, the Yarra Valley wine region features more than 55 cellar doors of some of the world’s finest wineries and vineyards. The Yarra Valley district also features a number of award winning family-owned and boutique wineries that await your discovery in our memorable wine tours to Yarra Valley.
Wineries in the Yarra Valley produce fine Chardonnay, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, complex Pinot Noir, robust Shiraz, and some of Australia’s foremost sparkling wines, including a handful made in partnership with French Champagne houses.
While the cool climate of Yarra Valley is particularly well suited for the famed Burgundy varietals Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this wine region also has extensive plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. In terms of white varietals, you will find Sauvignon Blanc, Pinto Gris/Grigio, Marsanne & Riesling.
With a history stretching back almost 175 years, the Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first wine growing district. Vines were first planted in 1838, and viticulture spread rapidly through the 1860s and 1870s. However, increased demand for fortified wine resulted in still wine production ceasing in the Yarra Valley in 1921. Replanting began in the late 1960s and by the early 1990s, the area under vine surpassed the previous peak high point of the 19th century. Today there is nearly 4000 hectares of vineyards in the Yarra Valley, accounting for roughly 2% of Australia’s wine growing area. Due to its abundant yield, the Yarra Valley produces an estimated 4% of Australia’s total annual crush.
