Yarra Valley to High Country touring route

Take the journey from the Yarra Valley to Victoria's High Country and uncover a treasure trove of fine food and wine. Drive through fertile valleys, rolling hills and spectacular high country on an eclectic culinary adventure that takes in six incredible wine regions – the Yarra Valley, Upper Goulburn, King Valley, Beechworth, Alpine Valleys and Rutherglen.

Choose from over 180 cellar doors, craft breweries, hatted restaurants and local artisan producers. Dine out and discover the work of the passionate chefs behind the scenes serving up their signature dishes using local seasonal produce.

In the cellars
Variety and quality exemplify the journey. Find chardonnay, pinot noir and shiraz in the Yarra Valley then drive on to sample the Upper Goulburn's cool climate whites. The King Valley's Italian varietals such as prosecco and sangiovese are nicely followed by Rutherglen's fortified wines and exciting new-style Durif.

Fresh is best
Artisan producers along the route offer a range of fresh produce from cheese, olives, mustards and honey to specialty breads, pickles and preserves. Stock up at stores and cafes in Marysville, Healesville, Ruffy, Acheron, Alexandra, Mansfield, Milawa and Beechworth, all offering a wide array of the region's best.

Two feet and two wheels
If all this sounds too calorie intensive then try out one of the many winery walks. Need something even more active? Take the ultimate guilt-free food and wine indulgence, Pedal to Produce – a bike ride between cellar doors, historic pubs and farm gate producers.
