Diverse and beautiful, Gippsland stretches from Victoria's high country in the north to Bass Strait in the south, and produces richly textured, distinctive and very special wines.
Rolling hills and rich varietals
Say goodbye to the city and in an hour reach the lush, fertile hills of West Gippsland. Tuck into the famed, farm-fresh produce of Warragul and surrounds – the perfect accompaniment to a wonderful array of local wines. A generally cool climate with a warm, dry autumn encourages rich chardonnay, unique sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot noir and shiraz, and an emerging production of sparkling wine.
About three hours from Melbourne, East Gippsland has a cool semi-maritime climate with low rainfall and tempering sea breezes. Its coastal plains produce subtle, complex pinot noir, and true cool-climate expressions of shiraz and chardonnay.
A drop in the Bass Strait
Beautiful South Gippsland is a true cool-climate region, with maritime influences from often stormy Bass Strait. Wineries from Phillip Island to the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges produce elegant chardonnay and pinot gris, but have found their true expression with pinot noir of superb flavour and structure.
