KING VALLEY, VIC
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.

We sat down with Ben Holdstock from Heaps Normal, the crew making big hangover-free waves, to chat about brewing great booze-free beer.
There's that famous old French saying in Burgundy, about the good warm vintages, that you would have to be dead not to make good wine. And in the easy years, that's what happens - everyone makes good wine and everyone's picking around the same time. But it's the difficult years – and in the Valley here, we still get three or four difficult years in every ten – they're the years where you make the statement on your skills and your expertise.

Despite the influence of both a pandemic and the much-maligned price of avocado toast (which many say is a hindrance to a home loan), the property market is still booming – even behind closed doors. So, how can you celebrate a sale or thank a vendor who is moving during lockdown?
