Lo­cal wines to shine

North East Tourist News - - WINE COUNTRY -

FROM the fer­tile plains around the Mur­ray River to the steep, tim­bered foothills of the Vic­to­rian Alps, North East Vic­to­ria of­fers stun­ning scenery and cel­e­brated gourmet ex­pe­ri­ences at any time of the year.

The North East’s five wine re­gions - Ruther­glen, Beechworth, Alpine Val­leys, King Val­ley and Glen­rowan - all re­flect their dis­tinct cli­matic, to­po­graphic and his­toric dif­fer­ences in the qual­ity and com­plex­ity of wines and the su­perb, ar­ti­san-style brews they pro­duce.

From the North East it is only a short drive across to cen­tral Vic­to­ria, en­com­pass­ing chilly moun­tain ranges, hu­mid val­ley plains, fer­tile river flats, thick forests and dry, rolling hills, pro­duc­ing wines that range from rich, ripe reds to full-flavoured whites.

There is some­thing for ev­ery­one to en­joy this sum­mer in wine coun­try. Find out more at www.vis­itvic­to­ria.com.
