Do we really need to twist your arm when it comes to a winery tour? I didn’t think so.
Grab some friends and explore the diverse wine regions of North East Victoria.
An hour’s drive from Albury Wodonga, the gorgeous Gapsted Wines is an essential to any winery tour. The onsite cellar door and restaurant overlooks the vines and is only minutes from the scenic township of Myrtleford. Must-try: enjoy a glass of Sparkling Pinot Grigio Rose whilst admiring the vineyard and surrounding countryside.
Nestled near the town of Oxley close to the foodie’s haven of Milawa, you’ll find the charming John Gehrig Wines. You’ll feel right at home in this down-to-earth cellar door which is family-run and owned. Must-try: you can’t go past the Riesling – a crisp and acidic white wine with lingering lime flavours. They also have another cellar door located at Goorammadda, just out of Rutherglen.
King Valley and milawa
Unofficially known as ‘Little Italy’, the King Valley is well known for their Italian varieties and of course, the birth-place of Australia Processo. Stop in at Dal Zotto for a glass and a friendly chat. Must-try: what else would it be but Prosecco! Pucino Prosecco NV to be exact.
Scion Wines are the new kids on the block in the world-renowned Rutherglen wine region. Winemaker Rowly and team have developed a reputation for making elegant, environmentally-sustainable wines. Must try: After Dark – a delicious semi-sweet fortified Durif.
The Albury region has it’s very own winery: Splitter’s Creek Vineyard. Open Saturdays and Sundays 10 minutes from the centre of Albury on the Riverina Highway towards Howlong.
And to make it easier, we’ve even mapped it out for you.
Bookings are recommended for tastings to avoid disappointment.
