Oxley and Milawa wine region
THERE are so many well known names in the Oxley/Milawa region when it comes to fine, award winning wines.
Their cheeses and produce aren’t too bad either.
In fact, Milawa was the first official ‘gourmet region’ in Australia and has been known as the food and wine gourmet epicentre ever since.
Although Milawa and Oxley wineries often come under the King Valley banner, you could easily spend a day or two visiting just those in these two small towns.
A long lunch followed by some tastings followed by an afternoon tea picnic with local produce you picked up, followed perhaps by some more tastings before heading off to enjoy dinner somewhere.
Or perhaps that’s just the lead-in to your evening where you’re enjoying more of the local winery hospitality as you enjoy a small, intimate wedding or something quite a bit larger.
Wineries are popular as wedding venues, receptions or as beautiful backdrops for your photos these days, with some even offering accommodation options for the bride and groom, the bridal party, or their guests.
If you want to feel healthy and adventurous before you settle in for a long afternoon, why not grab a bike or your best walking shoes and explore the area on any number of bike paths?
Just make sure you pack yourself a bag so you can take home your favourite tipple or produce.
