The warm climate of the Murray Darling and Swan Hill wine regions not only make trips pleasant all year round, it has helped cultivate some of Australia's best wines. Visit wineries and sample local varietals taking in the eclectic natural landscapes of Red Gum forest, desert, river, outback and lagoons.
Make the pilgrimage to Mildura and Swan Hill and be treated to Australian favourites like smooth shiraz and flavoursome chardonnay. Local winemakers also excel at growing varieties like viognier, nebbiolo, vermentino, durif, barbera and sangiovese.
Keep an eye on the calendar for food and wine festivals throughout the year. The Mildura Jazz Food and Wine Festival in November and Swan Hill Region Food and Wine Festival in March are great ways to pack all your foodie adventures into one event.
