climate The North-Alpine Valleys Wine District includes wineries in North East Victoria between the towns of Yackandandah, Myrtleford and Running Creek. The climate in the district varies with the elevation along the region's valley floors and on the slopes.Variable topography and the adjacent alpine peaks have significant affects on the climate. Many of the vineyards established during the 1860's succumbed to phylloxera and when the Second World War started there were virtually no commercially vineyards in the Region. The first major expansion of the wine industry began in 1980 at Merriang, when the Bailey family first established 10 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon. This planting soon grew to more than 100 acres. Soon after the Michelini family planted a vineyard of 30 acres in the Buckland Valley. Major expansion occurred in 1986 with the establishment of vineyards in Rosewhite, Whorouly, Whorouly South and Bright (Boyntons) and there were further plantings in the Kiewa River Valley. The wineries in the district now include: Eaglerange Estate, Kancoona Valley Vineyard and Wines, Gapsted Wines, Merriang Vineyards, Park Wines, Gundowringla Wines, Michelini Wines, Rosewhite Vineyards, Vic Alps Winery, Schmidt's Strawberry Winery.

The Alpine Valleys Wine Region includes two districts : North-Alpine Valleys ; South-Alpine Valleys
