Discover why the Pyrenees Wine Region makes for the perfect romantic getaway.

If you take a leisurely drive to the Pyrenees Shire (about 2 hours from Melbourne), you’ll find a stack of wineries nestled among stunning vineyards and overlooking the rolling hills. Let’s be honest, love doesn’t get much better than that.

The Pyrenees is renowned for its vineyards, so if you’ve never been, now is your chance.

Call into the wineries and you’ll find subtly fragrant Pinot Noir, restrained Chardonnay and elegant Sparkling Wines among other varieties.

Michael Unwin Wines, Taltarni, Summerfield Wines and Blue Pyrenees Estate are just some of the award-winning wineries to feed your heart, and your darling's.

And once you’ve taken in the wonders of the wine, we dare you to explore the region. The quaint antique stores and charming township shopfronts, beautiful food at the Avoca Hotel, the historic buildings and the soul of the countryside, combine to offer an ideal romantic escape.

Then there's the glamping available at Cave Hill Creek, where you can (luxuriously) immerse yourself in the beauty of Australia, and be at one with nature.
