Tasting Treasures of Western Victoria

Home to some of Australia’s best shiraz, Western Victoria offers excellent dry, red wine varieties. Usually medium-bodied, earthy, and with a hint of pepper or eucalyptus (from the native gum trees of the region), these wines are distinct and down-to-earth.

While this region may be best known for its shiraz, there are several other wine varieties that Western Victoria has to offer. Sparkling wine has been a specialty for the Great Western sub-region of the Grampians, especially its sparkling shiraz. The Pyranees region is also a leader in sparkling as the Blue Pyrenees Estate 2010 Midnight Cuvee won World Champion Australian Sparkling at the 2014 Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.

Furthermore, the region specializes in cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, chardonnay, and riesling so there’s plenty to taste and more to share.
