Yarra Valley Wineries and Vineyards

The Yarra Valley is one of Australia's most well known and loved wine regions both nationally and internationally. The area is just one hour drive from Melbourne with most properties centred around Coldstream, Healesville, Yarra Glen and the historic town of Lilydale. The Yarra River flows through the centre of the region on its way to Melbourne.

 

In 1837 three brothers Ryrie established a cattle property called Yering Station. They also planted vines, this planting was recorded as the first in Victoria's history. Although the area was internationally acclaimed it still took a major hit in the depression of the 1890s. It was not until the 1960s that the wine industry in the Yarra Valley was resuscitated and then further brought to life in the 1980s. By this point hundreds of hectares of land are under the vine and millions of dollars invested in wineries and tourist facilities.

 

The key reds of the region include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The popular white varieties are Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Marsanne, Riesling, Semillon and Verduzzo.

 

The area is thriving with visitors each year who enjoy the many cellar doors, historical highlights, beautiful country and fine dining. Book your Yarra Valley winery accommodation today and enjoy the beautiful region too.
