North East Wineries lead the way for Innovation

Recent tastings at wine shows organised by the Alpine Valleys and Beechworth vignerons proved once again that North East Victoria is home to some of Australia's most exciting wines and wineries. Brown Brothers led the way during the 1980s in experimentation with new grape varieties and wine styles through their "Kindergarten" winery. This encouraged ex-tobacco farmers of Italian descent in the King and Ovens Valleys to plant grapes their forebears were more familiar with, so they are now the genuine home for Italian varietals in Australia. Rick Kinzbrunner at Giaconda then drew attention to the potential of Beechworth's granitic soils for producing high quality wines, especially Chardonnay.
