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.

Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria in the 1800s, and 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.
