Region Gippsland

Gippsland is named after a former Governor of Victoria. Considered both a wine region and a zone, Gippsland extends from just east of Melbourne through to the southern NSW border. Vines were originally planted as early as the 19th century however the modern revival of the region’s viticulture did not occur until the 1970’s. An enormous geographical region – similar in size to Belgium, it is comprised of coastal plains and predominantly south-facing slopes of the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. The region is divided into three geographical areas, South, East and West. South Gippsland located about 100 km east of Melbourne, is a true cool climate area. Significant maritime influence ensures it is the wettest, coolest and windiest sub-region, providing ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. East Gippsland has a more Mediterranean style climate, with West Gippsland the driest and warmest area of the three. Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams

East Gippsland has a more Mediterranean style climate, with West Gippsland the driest and warmest area of the three. Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams over sedimentary and volcanic derived rock in the coastal regions to weathered granitic and volcanic soils in the foothills. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the principal varieties. A region dominated by small family run estates, Gippsland has garnered a reputation over the years particularly for fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
