The King Valley is an amazingly picturesque area in North Eastern Victoria. It is situated along the King River, in the foothills of the alpine national park and is therefore a great place to visit on your way to the snow fields, as well as being a destination for food and wine lovers alike.
The area is particularly known for Italian style wine varietals such as Prosecco, Sangiovese, Barbera and a variety of others. Being an area with a high degree of variance in elevation, the King Valley produces a large number of cooler climate varietals and you certainly see this in the extensive tasting lists at most of the regions cellar doors.
There are also a range of great eating options in the area from well known stores such as Milawa Mustards, The Olive Shop Milawa and Milawa Cheese Factory to great casual comfort food and more fine dining experiences at some of the areas cellar doors.
The areas around Milawa and Whitfield, where most of the cellar doors can be found, are quite flat so bike riding is a big part of the visit for many people. There are also some great walking tracks in the area, making it possible to explore the area on foot as well as walk between a number of the cellar doors.
There is a great sense of history, tradition and pride in the King Valley and with a little over a dozen cellar doors to visit and equally as many dining options, this regions is a food and wine lovers dream and one we always look forward to returning to!
