All About King Valley

Situated in Victoria’s high country, the King Valley is a rugged and picturesque destination known for its wine production. Due to geographic similarities with mountain regions in northern Italy, this fertile valley is home to several vineyards that specialize in Italian wine varietals such as Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, Dolcetto, and Barbera. The area is also famous for its production of the sparkling wine, Prosecco, and is home to a renowned food and wine trail known as Prosecco Road, where you can sample a glass, along with some authentic Italian food.

Besides wine tasting, the region also offers spectacular cafes, gastropubs, and restaurants, plus a huge range of outdoor activities. The nearby Alpine National Park boasts impressive waterfalls and rock formations. It’s also full of spectacular hiking and mountain-biking trails, as well as opportunities for white-water rafting, horse riding, road cycling, canoeing, and fishing.
