Wine regions in north-east Victoria

From the fertile plains around the Murray River to the steep, timbered foothills of the Victorian Alps, north-east Victoria offers stunning scenery and celebrated gourmet experiences.

The north-east's five wine regions – Rutherglen, Beechworth, Alpine Valleys, King Valley and Glenrowan – all reflect their distinct climatic, topographic and historic differences in the quality and complexity of wines and the superb, artisan-style brews they produce. These range from luscious muscat, vibrant Italian varieties, and austere and restrained sparkling to the rich ales of its many craft breweries.

In the north lies Rutherglen, with a rich history of fortified winemaking and a great diversity of table wines.To the south is Glenrowan, ripe for rediscovery, which has been producing traditional wines of heroic proportions since the 1870s. To the east is the pristine mountain environment of the Alpine Valleys, King Valley and Beechworth – gateways to Victoria's ski fields, which offer some of the state's most innovative winemaking, diverse vineyards and elegant wines.

Add an outstanding range of accommodation and delicious produce, and there are plenty of reasons to stay.
