Wine Australia webinar: Ancient soils, contemporary wines, Yarra Valley Chardonnay



This event has passed.

The Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first major wine-growing district, with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Today it is home to passionate and innovative winemakers, making exciting wines with energy and freshness, including some of Australia’s finest cool-climate Chardonnays.

Bordered on the north by the Great Dividing Range and the Dandenong Ranges to the south, Australia’s Yarra Valley is home to green hills and misty valleys and helps set the benchmark for Australian cool-climate wines.

It is one of Australia’s coolest regions and the range in altitudes, from 17m to 1338m, help to create unique microclimates throughout the region. Join this webinar to learn more about this vast yet varied region with Yarra Yering’s Sarah Crowe, Yering Station’s Brendan Hawker and author and journalist Max Allen as they discuss the region’s on-going love affair with Chardonnay.
