What are the most beautiful wine regions in Victoria?

Home to 21 wine regions, Victoria has a large number of beautiful wineries to explore. Travellers flock from all over the world to sample the fine wine of Victoria and marvel at the beautiful views. Here are some of the best and most beautiful wine regions in Victoria:

  • Yarra Valley is recognised as one of the world's premier wine-growing regions. The cool climate is ideal for producing chardonnay, sparkling wine, and pinot noir.
  • King Valley Prosecco Road is Australia’s home of prosecco, a delicious sparkling wine from the Veneto region in northeast Italy.
  • Pinot Coast is home to 146 cellar doors. This vast coastline runs along Australia’s southernmost edge where cool-climate pinot noir marries with locally sourced seafood.
  • Located in northeast Victoria, the Rutherglen wine region is famous for its fortified wines, shiraz, and durif. There are over 20 wineries in the area, from well-known household names to boutique operators.
  • With over 120 cellar doors, the Shiraz Central region stretches from the northwest of Melbourne and is renowned for its distinct cool-spiced shiraz.

Why you should explore Victoria wineries in your motorhome

With its stunning beaches, beautiful national parks, and of course, incredible wineries, there’s no better way to explore Victoria than by motorhome. Sample some of the great varieties on offer and find your favourite local drop. Then look forward to parking up, pouring a glass, and sitting under the stars or outside in the afternoon sunshine.

With all your home comforts on board, you don’t have to worry about finding accommodation or stressing about checking in and out. Remember, if you’re planning on touring wineries in Victoria, be sure to avoid driving after drinking.
