Connect with Victoria:
The Victoria wine region is located in the Australian southeast state of Victoria. Home to more than 20 wine appellations, the region hosts a multitude of different climates and terroirs. Ranging from temperate to cool climates, flat fields to mountainous terrain, Victoria possesses a full array of diversity in winegrowing conditions.
Wine has been produced in Victoria since the 19th century. At its high point in the 1890s, the region produced more than half of all wine produced in Australia. However, the phylloxera epidemic soon followed and took a hard toll on the Victoria wine industry, which did not fully recover until the 1950s. Today, winemaking is spread out across the state and features premier wine regions such as Heathcote, Rutherglen and the Yarra Valley.
