"Breathtaking landscapes, premium cool climate wines, colourful food culture and striking seasonal contrasts distinguish the Alpine Valleys region. It is situated in the north-east of Victoria and its neighbours are the Beechworth and King Valley regions. The long, moderate growing conditions produce high-quality grapes with intense fruit flavours and natural acidity.
The region is one of the most visited regions in Australia, with many incorporating cellar door visits during skiing holidays to the Alps. The trail of friendly cellar doors allows visitors to experience the deep, seamless reds and crisp elegant whites, alongside the region’s bounty of local gourmet produce." - Wine Australia
