Moorabool Valley Wine



Welcome to the Moorabool Valley and Anakie, a sub region of Victoria's renowned Geelong Wine Region, located only an hour away from Melbourne.

The Moorabool Valley represents one of Australia's finest cool climate wine regions with a fast growing reputation for boutique wineries producing premium hand crafted wines.

Family owned and operated wineries dominate the Valley giving visitors the opportunity to meet with the people who tend the vines and produce the wide range of classic and alternative wines on offer.

With a history extending back to 1842, Swiss immigrants chose the Moorabool Valley to plant some of Victoria's earliest vines. Decimated by the Phylloxera virus in the late 1800's, the Valley's renaissance began in the 1960's with new plantings at Idyll Vineyard and Del Rios of Anakie.

Today, a small band of passionate winemakers embrace the challenge of producing superior cool climate wines from the tough limestone and basalt base which forms this region's unique terroir.


Nestled between Geelong & Ballarat, the Moorabool Valley's small, family run vineyards provide rich and intense low yield fruit, perfect for crafting into award winning wines.
