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.

  • Wines, much like people, tend to be lumped together in broad categories based on over-arching generalizations and limited samples sets. Its just second nature to presuppose that a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc will taste of gooseberries and chilies while one from France will recall minerals and herbs. While these generalizations are right on cert... Read More

  • Boggy Creek Vineyards Barbera King Valley 2005

    Snoothrank:
