The birthplace of Victorian wine, the Yarra Valley wine industry dates back to the 1830s, with the first vines planted at Yering Station. Today the Yarra Valley is one of Australia's foremost cool climate regions. It stands out for its classic and premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and the resulting Sparkling wines. Silky soft Cabernet Sauvignon and intense spicy Shiraz also do well in the Yarra Valley, but as Australia’s premier Pinot Noir region, and a leader in leaner, acid-driven styles of Chardonnay, over 80 wineries compete to showcase their wares.
