Vineyards around Geelong

We recently did a tour of vineyards around Geelong, Victoria. Geelong is one of Victoria’s lesser known wine regions.

Most of the wines we sampled were Pinot varieties. Pinot is new to me, so it was fun to try the different styles. Although, I think the highlight was tasting the locally produced olive oil.

The photos below give a hint of the quirky artwork that accompanied the wine at many of the vineyards we visited.
