The Henty Wine Region is in South western Victoria, approximately 300km west of Melbourne and 500km south east of Adelaide. The largest towns in the region are Portland, Warrnambool and Hamilton.
The area is endowed with natural beauty from the rolling redgum-dotted pastures of the north to the dramatic coastline of the south.
The climate is characterised by cold, wet winters and warm, dry summers followed by a long cool autumn ripening period. Grapes ripen later here than in many other wine regions, resulting in superb intense varietal flavours.
The region is only 3 hours drive from Melbourne via Ballarat, Geelong or through the picturesque Grampians.
For a longer tour take the spectacular Great Ocean Road via Warrnambool to visit the Henty Region’s wineries.
