Geelong wine region

Explore the Geelong wine region's diverse sub-regions from surf coast to volcanic plains making its food, wine and landscape resist any 'cool climate' label. Taste varieties with a subtle European style such as chardonnay and shiraz.

Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria in the 1800s, and it has undergone a renaissance in the last couple of decades as winemakers rediscover rich soils and a climate that is halfway between France's Bordeaux and Burgundy.

Meet the makers and celebrate the best of the Geelong wine region at the annual Toast to the Coast, held over October/November at wineries from the Bellarine and Moorabool Valley out to the Surfcoast.
