Pyrenees wine region

Throw a boule on a piste outside a vineyard in ruggedly beautiful surrounds deep in the Pyrenees wine region – Victoria, that is, not that other famous wine area between France and Spain.

Victoria's French connection
It's no surprise that these two regions share a name, with sweeping vistas, a passion for petanque and diverse wine growing areas with distinct microclimates producing world-beating wines. The French connection in Victoria's Pyrenees goes back to the 1960s when French brandy producer Remy Martin established his eponymous chateau near Avoca.

Spicy reds and smart sparklings
Victoria's Pyrenees comprise the southern extension of the Great Dividing Range, and its foothills and ranges create a remarkable diversity of microclimates that provide a wealth of variety for winemakers.

Visit the cellar doors of the 44 vineyards in the region and taste the savoury spicy reds that the area is known for, especially the premium cabernet sauvignon. Chardonnay and sauvignon blanc also respond beautifully to the soils and climate here, with some standout sparkling wines produced.

Avoca and Moonambel
Make a winery weekend of it and spend time in historic townships Avoca and Moonambel. Time your visit to coincide with the Avoca River and Wine Festival in March, and be sure to visit the celebrated Blue Pyrenees Estate winery on your travels. In neighbouring Moonambel (just a fifteen minute drive away), explore traditional country pubs, stay in serene winery accommodation and discover plenty of cellar doors.
