Ballarat wine region

The gold-rush city of Ballarat is at the heart of this exciting and flourishing food and wine region. The historic streetscapes serve as a spectacular backdrop for a fascinating local epicurean experience.

Spice up your life
The mist-shrouded vineyards around Ballarat are famous for subtly-fragrant pinot noir, chardonnay and elegant sparkling wines. Winemakers are also having success with riesling, and even shiraz. Low temperatures and yields, combined with small boutique wineries, are giving Ballarat wines a premium reputation.

By the glass
Make sure you visit the region during the annual Ballarat by the Glass wine weekend, starting on the Melbourne Cup Weekend and running for the month of November. The festival offers the chance to sample hard-to-find labels.
