King Valley has extremely varied terrain and is one of the highest wine grape growing areas in Australia. It is fertile country, capable of producing high yields of good quality grapes across the full spectrum from Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon.
Most vineyards have been established on relatively gentle slopes, typically north and north-east facing. The higher altitude climate is particularly ideal for the production of fine sparkling wine.
The main wine styles produced also include Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon.
