Overview

Is it time to do something different? Head over to Wimmera Hills Winery, meet the wine maker; tour the vineyard. Set high in the upper reaches of the Wimmera basin where grazing country meets rugged forest. Sparse soil over shattered sandstone; this is the Pyrenees Ranges where great shiraz is born. Gain a new appreciation of wine. Breathe fresh air in our pristine valley. It's all here for you. Only 2.5 hours from Melbourne, or 50 minutes from Ballarat, in beautiful Central Victoria. If you a looking for something special to do? Book in for tasting of the produce of our distillery. Learn about our Gin & Liqueurs and the story behind each of them.

Hey BL - thanks for the kind review. So glad you enjoyed your visit; I think the kids really liked to be able to toast some marshmellows while the adults got time to enjoy the guided wine tasting. See you next time!
