The world-renowned Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first major wine-growing district, with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Today it is home to passionate and innovative winemakers, making exciting wines with energy and freshness, including some of Australia’s finest cool-climate Chardonnays.
Bordered on the north by the Great Dividing Range and the Dandenong Ranges to the south, Australia’s Yarra Valley is home to green hills and misty valleys and helps set the benchmark for Australian cool-climate wines.
