|Local Food and Wine|
Australian wines are amongst the world’s best, and the High Country has eight distinctive wine regions along with many artisan food producers. There’s a real feast for the senses, including trout fresh from local streams, olives and olive oil, beef from local cattle, just-picked fruit and vegetables, jams and preserves.
The King Valley is one of the oldest established wine regions in Australia and has an Italian flavour with many of the families continuing the tradition from their ancestors with fine wines and food. Enjoy such a trip with our Pedal to Produce tour that takes you to 9 cellar door and farm gate producers. Look out for the annual Cycle Salute event that enjoys a special haute cuisine luncheon.
