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.

Victoria on Snooth

  • De Bortoli Db Family Selection Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nectarine, pear and meyer lemon on the nose. Blades of grass on the palate deliver astringent yellow fruit flavors. Lemon drops galore. Marmalade and honeysuckle finish it up, fast and furious. Read More

  • I did the bike race downtown Victoria last weekend and afterward had late lunch of Salt Spring Island lamb burger and a Chilean Syrah.  It was perfect, except I'd have preferred a BC Syrah, but they don't serve those by the glass.  Elk make great burgers too.  Read More
