The Yarra Valley is Australia's oldest and most respected wine region. Vines were first planted in the valley in 1838 by the Scottish Ryrie brothers, who established Yering Station, which is still operational today. The valley's cool climate and fertile soils proved to be well-suited to grape growing, and by the late 19th century, the Yarra Valley was producing some of the finest wines in Australia.
The early 20th century saw a decline in the Yarra Valley's wine industry due in part to the phylloxera epidemic that devastated vineyards around the world. However, the industry began to recover in the 1960s, and by the 1980s, the Yarra Valley was once again producing world-class wines.
Today, the Yarra Valley is home to over 60 wineries, producing a wide range of premium wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz. The valley is also a popular tourist destination, with many wineries offering tours and tastings.
