Milawa & King Valley
Live la dolce vita with fine food, wine and accommodation in Milawa and King Valley, one of Australia's oldest gourmet regions and Victoria's breadbasket.
You'll be left with mouth-watering memories and new friends when you leave Milawa and King Valley. Meet the winemakers and their families as you tour intimate, authentic wineries that continue the region's history of entrepreneurial and exciting winemaking. And for the inside scoop on some traditional recipes, take a class at Pizzini Wines Cooking School.
Taste uncommon Italian varietals like prosecco, nebbiolo, sangiovese and barbera at family-run wineries including Pizzini, Dal Zotto Estate, Sam Miranda and Ciavarella Wines.
Pedal to produce
You'll need some gourmet eats to accompany all those fine wines. Hop on your bike, grab a map from the local Visitor Information Centre and pedal between small producers in welcoming villages, filling your basket with cheeses, nuts, trout, honey, wine and olives.
Make your way beyond stunning alpine vistas, acres of vineyards, plains of wildflowers and historic locations, stopping at the Milawa Cheese Factory Café for homemade cheeses. Sample local mustards, herb vinegars and preserves at Milawa Mustards, and join an olive tasting at the Olive Shop. Save time and space for a visit to the Epicurean Centre Restaurant at the well-established Brown Brothers.
