Gold Fields Winery, Goldfields Victoria
To partake in the natural beauty of the this region of Victoria, explore the history and scenic surroundings of the Ballarat Gold Trail.
Or take the Mount Alexander Diggings Trail, the Koori Heritage Trail or the Ballarat Chinese Heritage Trail. Last but not least sample the gracious local wines of the Great Grape Touring Route.
The wine regions of Ballarat, Bendigo, best known for its big reds, Heathcote and the Pyrenees are all located near Melbourne Australia, with over 23 wineries in the area.
And although similar in name, the Victorian Pyrenees are actually quite unlike the mountain ranges located between Spain and France.
Yet the French connections run deep in this region’s wine history, with the Blue Pyrenees Estate winery and the Taltarni winery reflecting their their true French origins. While this link has associated the region with sparkling wines, as well as brandy, its specialty are reds. These wines tend to be both deep and flavoursome.
Signature wine styles to be found in the region: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
