If your car boot's not chock full of shiny, tinkling wine bottles when you get back from regional Victoria, did you ever really go?
Pop into a vineyard and pick up something delicious to drink with tonight's meal. While you're out and about, grab a few bottles to take home or pick a drop with cellaring potential and save it for a special occasion. Birthday on the horizon? A bottle with a bit of history makes a great gift.
Victoria's wine regions are amazingly diverse. Micro-climates, soils, the breadth and age of grape varieties grown here – all add up to a fine mix of wine styles, and the perfect match for your foodie adventure. A rich heritage of wine making traditions underpin many a famous name or up-and-coming winery in regional Victoria.
Check out our tips on what to drink now, and what to save for later. Or ditch the rule book and have the best of both worlds: buy an older vintage or an 'NV' to drink right now.
Go with an empty esky and return with a little bit of regional Victoria.
