Glenrowan, in Northeast Victoria, has a rich and colourful history owing to the infamy created by Australia’s most notorious bushranGermany Ned Kelly. Vines were first planted in 1866. The warm climate and rich, fertile red granitic soils was ideally suited to fortified wine production, which thrived for many years. Phylloxera arrived in the late 1800’s destroying the vineyard area. Today Glenrowan it is a small region comprised mainly of family owned vineyards and is best known for producing full-bodied robust Shiraz and fortified styles.
