Gippsland

"The Gippsland region sweeps along spectacular coastlines and through picturesque rolling hills and is home to several small, family-owned vineyards and wineries. The region, while not as well known as many other regions, has produced fine table wines as far back as the 19th century.

The Gippsland wine region covers a large area extending from the NSW/Victorian border, along the coast to Wonthaggi just below Melbourne, then west to the edge of the Great Dividing Range. Wine production ceased prior to World War I and didn't reappear until the 1970s. Development has been dominated by small, family-owned vineyards and wineries." - Wine Australia

"Throughout Gippsland there are many different microclimates producing wine styles with structure and elegance. Although there are many different varieties in the ground, the region’s strengths shine through with aromatic white wines, chardonnay and pinot noir... From Melbourne’s eastern fringe to the New South Wales border, Gippsland is full of artisan wine and food producers, unspoilt beaches and an abundance of wildlife. Travel to every corner of Gippsland; Phillip Island, Wilson’s Promontory National Park, Mt Baw Baw, Gippsland Lakes, Great Alpine Road and the Ninety Mile Beach - one of the longest uninterrupted beaches
in the world." - Wine Gippsland
