Encompassing the watershed of the King River, this is an increasingly important grape growing region, albeit one of extremely varied terrain. The King River joins the Ovens River at Wangaratta and the King Valley region runs south through the Oxley Plains for 25 kilometres (16 miles) to Moyhu before entering a number of narrow valleys with steep, well-timbered hillsides in the foothills of the Alps. At its northern end is Milawa, which is at the lowest point of 155 metres (509 feet). At the southern end is the Whitlands plateau, at 800 metres (2624 feet), one of the highest wine grape growing areas in Australia.

  •  27th July 2013, Ormond Hall, St Kilda RdIt is well-evident that there is no shortage of Rhone-inspired wines in Australia. We certainly have vineyards which bask in similar weather conditions as the Rhone Valley.
