Goulburn Valley wine region
Make your way around the sprawling Goulburn Valley, a huge area stretching from Seymour in central Victoria right up to Echuca on the Murray River.
Abundant water, gentle weather and sandy soils have enabled the Goulburn Valley, and the sub-region of Nagambie Lakes in particular, to consistently produce wine since the 1860s. Just across the Murray River, you will find the emerging New South Wales wine region of Perricoota.
Tahbilk Winery & Vineyard, one of the oldest in the country, pioneered the area's affinity with Rhône varietals such as marsanne, shiraz and rousanne. Buttery rich chardonnay is also a regional strength.
As well as vineyards, prolific orchards grow apples, pears, peaches and other stone fruits, so watch out for the farm gate sales.
