Grampians
The Grampians wine region is situated near the Grampians National Park and the Pyrenees hills in Victoria. Only a two hour’s drive west from Melbourne, this area is known primarily for their luscious, full-bodied red wine such as Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is also known to produce crisp, citrus-driven Rieslings.



Home to over 15 wineries, Grampians enjoys a Mediterranean climate because of its closeness to the Southern Ocean which brings a wave of cool winds to the vineyards during the summer. During the daytime, the temperatures tend to range from warm to hot and it cools down to cold temperatures during the night. Autumns in Grampians are blissfully mild which allowing for ideal conditions for ripening grapes. The soil of this region is divided into two main types: soil which is acidic grey brown loamy sands and clay loam soils, and hard yellow soil with structured clay sub soils. Because of the acidity of the soils, the pH levels have to be increased with the addition of lime to make them favorable for grape growth. This may explain the hints of acidity and citruses in the wines of this region.
