Mediterranean varietals headline the beautiful King Valley’s contribution to the Australian wine industry. Prosecco, Arneis, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Barbera, Dolcetto and Tempranillo all flourish in this, the highest wine region in Australia, located in Victoria’s high country. Cool, crisp white wines; savoury, spicy reds; and the Italian spirit are the hallmark of the King Valley. The most famous winery has been run by the Brown family at Milawa since 1889 and there are now more than 70 families in the King Valley tending to over 1,800 hectares of vineyards. The valley’s higher altitude climate is ideal for the production of fine sparkling wines as well as traditional-style Muscats and Ports.
