Surfcoast

The Surfcoast

The Geelong Region is spoilt for choice. And the choices continue as we travel to the West to the wineries that are not on the normal highways and a little harder to find.

The proximity to the wild, Antarctic waters of the Bass Strait makes the Surf Coast one of the more difficult sub-regions to make wine. The soils here are sandy rather than rocky and being so close to the ocean gives it that Mediterranean element. In spite of that, there are a handful of very good vineyards.

The core varieties you’ll find remain the same (shiraz, pinot noir and chardonnay), but the styles are distinct. Much like in the Moorabool Valley, adversity here has only made for smarter viticultural practices, hardier vines and more interesting wines.

Another enticing reason to visit? The famous surf breaks, dramatic cliff faces and winding roads of Australia’s favourite coastal highway.
