The Henty wine region, one of the coolest climates of Australia's mainland wine growing regions, stretches from Western-Victoria to Southern South Australia. The region is known for its aromatic white wines, luscious sweet dessert wines and intense, finely structured reds.
The wine grape varieties that have been most widely planted in the Henty region are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Also to be found are Semillon, Shiraz, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Gris.
Stop in at Pierrepoint Wines between Hamilton and Tarrington to enjoy a tasting and cheese platter at the family owned and operated vineyard, cellar door and Bed & Breakfast.
