Overview

Sunbury wine region

The closest winemaking area to Melbourne, Sunbury is also one of Victoria's oldest. Its cool, dry climate combined with diverse soil types produces elegant wines, and the historic local wineries make perfect locations for tasting the area's celebrated shiraz.

Local characters, exceptional flavours

Call in to cellar doors in and around Sunbury and chances are you'll meet a winemaker at work. Learn about the exceptional regional terroir, find out how wines are made, and hear a few local yarns for good measure.

Bluestone cellars

Taste shiraz and chardonnay in the 1860s bluestone cellar door at Craiglee in Sunbury. Cross the road for more history at Goona Warra, which means 'resting place of black swan' in the local Aboriginal dialect.

You'll also find sumptuous wines to try among the colourful orchards in Bacchus Marsh, overlooking the dams in Glenlyon, and in the paddocks around Gisborne.
