The Geelong Wine Region boasts historical roots back to the early 1800's when Geelong was a booming regional centre, hub of the vast Western District trade. Devastated by the phylloxera disease during the late 1800’s, it took until the 1960’s for Geelong to be established as a premium wine growing region.
Today the vast Geelong Wine Region contains more than 60 vineyards across the Moorabool Valley, Bellarine and The Surf Coast sub-regions.
Abounding in variety, the Geelong Wine Region is renowned for its superior Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and distinctive Shiraz. Whilst these varieties are the backbone of most winemakers, the Geelong Wine Region is rich in adventurous winemakers.
