With spectacular vistas punctuated by rocky granitic outcrops, the Strathbogie Ranges Wine Region is located between Seymour and Benalla, east of the Hume Freeway with the township of Euroa at its heart. This wine region is approximately one and a half hours easy driving north-east of Melbourne.
The Region moves from the cooler climate wines in the south to the more temperate conditions in the north. Wineries range from the larger Fowles Wines at Avenel to the small family gems like RPL Wines at Locksley. Established vineyards have developed in the region with the quality of wines produced being acknowledged by wine experts across Australia.
If planning a few days away, the small town of Euroa has various accommodation options available ranging from boutique B&B's, motels anda popular caravan park situated on the Seven Creeks.
