The unique and relatively unknown region of the Strathbogie Ranges is perfect for those wanting to flee the big smoke and discover award winning wines among misty mornings, shady gum trees and picture-perfect sunsets in historic Ned Kelly country!
Only 100 kilometres north of Melbourne this highly diverse region incorporating farming land and forests, striking rocky outcrops, stunning vistas, glades and waterfalls, produces distinctive wines from over 25 vineyards.
The high altitude of the area (elevations of up to 600m), coupled with nutrient poor granitic soils and a cool climate, results in wines full of intense character and elegance as well as stunning views across the central Victorian plains.
As a growing wine region many smaller producers do not operate a cellar door. However, the nearby townships in and around Avenel and Nagambie have excellent wineries and eateries that serve local produce.
Fowles Wine is an award winning producer of premium cool climate wines, including the world's first wine specifically crafted to match wild game, in the ruggedly beautiful high-altitude region of the Strathbogie Ranges.
Fowles Wine Cellar Door and Cafe is located at the foothills of the stunning Strathbogie Ranges in central Victoria, just 1.5 hours north of Melbourne. The nearby winery facility, located on Upton Hill, offers tours by appointment and spectacular views across the central Victoria plains.
