Gippsland wine region
Roam East, West or South to savour a diverse range of wines that reflects the fascinating contrasts of the region. Day trip or extended stay, there are over 45 increasingly renowned cool-climate cellar doors ready to impress in Gippsland.
Rolling hills and rich varietals
Say goodbye to the city and in an hour reach the lush, fertile hills of West Gippsland. Tuck into the famed, farm-fresh produce of Warragul and surrounds - the perfect accompaniment to a wonderful array of local wines. A generally cool climate with a warm, dry autumn encourages rich chardonnay and unique sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot noir, shiraz and an emerging production of sparkling wine.
About three hours from Melbourne, East Gippsland has a warmer, Mediterranean climate with low rainfall and tempering sea breezes. Its coastal plains produce chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, fruity pinot noir and floral riesling.
A drop in the Bass Strait
South Gippsland is incredibly beautiful and a true, cool-climate region with maritime influences from the often stormy Bass Strait. Wineries from Phillip Island to the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges produce elegant chardonnay and pinot gris, but have found their true expression with pinot noir of superb flavour and structure.
