"The mineral rich hills around Beechworth are home to more than a dozen vineyards. These vineyards are tended by wine growing families with a fierce independence and a passion for making the best possible artisanal wines.
Gold found around the town of Beechworth in 1852 brought prosperity to this relatively small wine producing region. Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Noir all do very well in this altitude influenced area." - Wine Australia
