COOL CLIMATE WINERY TOUR

A tour of up to thirteen wineries between Glenrowan and Mount Beauty.

For guests travelling from Melbourne and South Australia it is a detour of approximately 20km to visit twelve wineries and will add approximately 40km to visit all thirteen. Unfortunately for residents of Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra this tour route will add about 160km to your trip, so you may settle for visiting the three key wineries at Mount Beauty.

Sellf drive Winery Tour map cool climate wineries North East Victoria Tour Start

If travelling north on the Hume freeway take the first Glenrowan exit if you wish to commence your tour at Baileys Glenrowan. The Glenrowan wineries require the greatest detour from the direct route to Mount Beauty. If you wish to commence your winery tour at Oxley exit the Hume Freeway at the next exit immediately after McDonalds and turn left onto the snow road.

The red route is our recommended convenient easy driving route if you are not visiting the wineries on the way or the Milawa fine foods area. The green line is the diversion to the route for the self drive winery tour.

If you arrive at Glenrowan early in the day then you may have time to visit more wineries in the Glenrowan area. There are another four wineries with cellar door sales in the area. These are even further off the direct route than Baileys. Click on map to right for location. Be careful that you do not leave yourself short and miss out on visiting some of the wineries which are much closer to the direct route. You may schedule these other wineries for a subsequent trip to Mount Beauty.

After you have visited Glenrowan, leave the main township travelling north, and then head east over the Hume Freeway onto the "Snow Road" to Oxley, Milawa and Myrtleford.
