This state was among the first to be planted with vinifera vines in the mid 19th century, particularly around the cool-climate Yarra Valley. However, it was not as lucky as other parts of the country to escape the deadly Phylloxera louse outbreak some thirty years later, and the industry suffered until the hybrid grafting solution was discovered in the early 20th century.

The attitude and poor reception throughout actually bothered me more than being charged for the bottle. Truthfully, being charged still felt kind of strange..... Read More
