Golden Nugget Discovery Tours take you to the Pyrenees foothills and ranges. They provide a stunning backdrop to a region that amply rewards those seeking wines of character and interest.
The Pyrenees is famous for its high quality boutique wines of the French Bordeaux variety.
Fragrant Shiraz and complex Cabernet Sauvignon excel through the region. Although traditionally a red wine region, the wineries are now producing high quality Methode Traditionale Champenoise, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling on tasting.
Varietals such as Sangiovese and Tempranillo are also emerging from a number of the wineries. The intimacy of the area is evident when visiting any of the wineries within the region. The winemakers are often on hand to discuss their personal wine styles with visitors.
The tour takes you to signature wineries for tastings, Cheese Platter, lunch at a winery restaurant, bottle of French wine, pick up or drop off from your accommodation for Ballarat and region customers, and for Melbourne customers, free train travel to and from Melbourne.
