Wine and High Country winery experiences & guided wine tours

The Wine and High Country offers a broad and diverse range of wine regions, each with a unique climate, producing very different styles. Head into the mountains to discover the Alpine Valley known for its cool-climate Shiraz, before crossing into the King Valley, Australia's home to Italian varietals. Head back down to Beechworth produces remarkable Chardonnay, Pinot and Shiraz, then cut across to the Rutherglen, one of Australia's gifts to the wine world. Try one of their iconic fortified wines, and you'll instantly agree. Other great regions include the Strathbogie Ranges, Glenrowan and the Goulburn Valley which must be included in any trip to the Wine and High Country.

Pop & Fizz - Prosecco Food Pairing Surprise Experience
$60
Open your eyes (and palates) to the surprising potential of Prosecco with this revelatory food and wine matching experience held at Pizzini Wines.  The sensory immersion starts when you step into the Kiln Tasting Room – an original tobacco kiln from Pizzini’s past agricultural life transformed into a luxe, light-drenched sampling space. Here, you’ll enjoy a remarkably energetic and fun-filled 45-minute session that will introduce lesser-known aspects of the Prosecco personality. For example, who would have thought Prosecco could pair so perfectly with the likes of popcorn and blue cheese? The Kiln Tasting Room accommodates groups of eight at a time. Gather your friends for a private session or make new ones in this intimate environment. Given the session equates to 1.5 standard drinks, you should be fine to drive afterwards, or stay on and enjoy the sunshine and something else from the tasting counter – Sangiovese, perhaps? $55 per person for a 45-minute tasting session, includes five wine samples and 3-4 food matches.
