"It is no surprise that the Pyrenees mountain range shares its name with the ruggedly beautiful area that divides France and Spain - sweeping vistas, a temperate climate and passion for petanque are similarities that go way beyond the name.
The Pyrenees foothills and ranges create a remarkable diversity of microclimates that provide a wealth of variety for winemakers. The Pyrenees is a quintessential Australian wine region, the vineyards appearing sporadically between the ever present eucalyptus trees. " - Wine Australia
