Region Description

Victoria is Australia's premier wine region, located in the south-eastern corner of the continent. With a long history of winemaking, Victoria is home to some of the country's most renowned wineries and vineyards. Victoria's wine industry began due to the discovery of gold in the 1850s, leading to a influx of settlers from Europe, who brought vines and know-how from home. By 1890, Victoria was producing half of all the wine in Australia, but the spread of phylloxera in the late 19th Century and a number of wider issues, caused a decline. The industry didn't get started again until the 1960s.
