Goulburn Valley Wineries and Vineyards

The Goulburn Valley wine region is situated in the north eastern corner of Victoria and is part of the Central Victorian Zone. The area includes one sub-region, the Nagambie Lakes. The main towns are Echuca, Murchison, Seymour and Shepparton and the Goulburn River flows through the centre of this region. The Goulburn Valley is known for consistently producing hearty Shiraz and full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Nagambie Lakes sub region is located south along the Goulburn River. It was determined as a sub region due to the Lakes system which is a large body of water made up of lakes, billabongs, lagoons and streams of the Goulburn River. These large bodies of water keep the region cool and many vineyards are located on their banks.

Nagambie Lakes certainly is an interesting region as its grape growing industry dates back to the 1850s. The region claims to be home to the oldest Marsanne and Shiraz vines in the world. Much of this region is influenced by France's Rhone Valley with varieties such as Grenache, Marsanne, Mourvedre, Roussanne, Shiraz and Viognier in abundance here. You can enjoy these fine wines at many cellar doors where you can dine in their fantastic restaurants and enjoy their views. Two events of note in the area are the World's Longest Lunch held in March and the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge in October.
