Overview

Geelong wine region

Explore the Geelong wine region's diverse sub-regions, from surf coast to volcanic plains, making its food, wine and landscape resist any 'cool climate' label. Taste varieties with a subtle European style such as chardonnay and shiraz.

Vine revival

In the 1800s this was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria. It has undergone a renaissance in the last couple of decades as winemakers rediscover rich soils and a climate that is halfway between France's Bordeaux and Burgundy.

Geelong and the Bellarine region punches well above its weight, producing a raft of award-winning wines that are regularly listed in James Halliday's 'best of the best' list.

Meet the makers and celebrate the best of the Geelong wine region at the annual Toast to the Coast, held over October/November at wineries from the Bellarine and Moorabool Valley out to the Surf Coast.

Winery visits

Stop in at one of the 40 cellar doors open for tasting in the region and sample from a diverse range of wines.

Many wineries also have cafes and restaurants attached, allowing you to unwind, take in the scenery and enjoy a sumptuously cooked meal with a perfectly matched wine.
