For over 160 years, the Grampians have been crafting exceptional cool-climate fine wines, renowned for their quality and longevity. Situated just a two-hour drive to the west of Melbourne, this region impresses serious wine enthusiasts with both established and boutique wineries, spanning from the acclaimed Mount Langi Ghiran in the east to the wine village and sub-region of Great Western.
Within this region lie some of Australia's if not the worlds oldest and rarest vines. Each winery boasts a passionate aficionado who eagerly shares the history behind every bottle, crafted with immense pride.
Furthermore, the Grampians region satisfies the foodie within. You can savor seasonal produce at Paper Scissors Rock Brew Co., indulge in mouth-watering smoked meats at Flame Bros, enjoy family-friendly options at The Kookaburra Hotel and, of course, relish an unforgettable culinary experience at the Bunyip Hotel in Cavendish in the Southern Grampians.
