From the coastlines of the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsula to the misty mountains of the Macedon Ranges and Yarra Valley, we’ve rounded up the unmissable wine regions in Victoria, Australia to explore on your next day trip from Melbourne.
The 2018 Helen’s Hill 'Long Walk' Pinot Noir strikes the balance of dark cherries, brambles, elegant tannins, earthiness and spice that Yarra Valley Pinot Noirs are known for. Paired with air-dried eye fillet, truffle mayonnaise, rocket leaves, shaved parmesan & pickled cucumber. My go-to dish and paring to for this time of year.- Trent Whelan, Executive Chef at Novotel Melbourne South Wharf
The clear flavours of the Burton McMahon D’Aolisio Vineyard Chardonnay sourced from Melbourne’s Yarra Valley, has a great concentration and minerality, pairs perfectly with the pan-seared blue-eye cod from our Windows dinner menu- Ross Chapman, Culinary Director at Pullman and Mercure Melbourne Albert Park
2018 Concrete and Clay Mornington Chardonnay. This winery delivers a wine using the best of the old and new world in winemaking techniques, ceramic egg fermenters and old barriques. Subtle floral notes mix with white peaches. Delicious any time of the day.- Sophie Johnston, Restaurant & Bar Manager at Pullman Melbourne on the Park
