The Southern Highlands
The Southern Highlands is an exciting new cool-climate region surrounding Mittagong and Bowral. The region produces lush, full flavoured wines that can be enjoyed all year round, and is gaining particular attention for its Pinot Noir, which excels in the higher altitude vineyards. There are over 60 vineyards in the Southern Highlands and around 14 of them have cellar doors open to the public for wine tasting and direct sales.
As a small, private tour you can create your own special day or we are happy to make some suggestions - premium boutique wineries, craft beers and beautiful Southern Highland scenery as we travel throughout the region. We can also arrange private tastings, vineyard walks, picnics in the vines and plenty more!
