Yarra Valley wine region

From architectural statements to rustic tin sheds hidden among the vines, the Yarra Valley has a wonderful range of cellar doors, all reflecting the diversity of styles and approaches in this beautiful, cool-climate region, a stone's throw from Melbourne.

Stunning scenery with wines to match
Snap up new vintage cool-climate masterpieces from over 70 wineries around Healesville and the picturesque village of Marysville further north, to those tucked into the beautiful hill country around Nillumbik, Hurstbridge and Kangaroo Ground.

Visit the cellar doors of architecturally imposing wineries to rustic tin sheds hidden among the vines, from stalwarts that continue to innovate like DeBortoli, Fergusson and Yering Station to newer favourites like Punt Road and Mandala Wines.

The wine region that started it all
Sample the grapes and marvel at the harmony of diverse soils, temperate weather, and the dedication of generations of vignerons in the pioneering region that kick-started Victoria's wine industry in 1838.

Match the superb estate wines with a meal at a winery restaurant in the region that boasts multiple hatted chefs who create masterpieces from the lush and bountiful local produce.
