The ruggedly beautiful surrounds of the Pyrenees wine region shares a name with that other famous wine area between France and Spain. And it’s no surprise, given the region’s sweeping vistas, passion for petanque, and its diverse wine-growing areas with distinct microclimates that produce world-beating wines.
The French connection in Victoria's Pyrenees goes back to the 1960s, when French brandy producer Rémy Martin established his eponymous chateau near Avoca.
