climate The Yarra Glen Wine District is located in the Yarra Valley Wine Region and is centred on the area surrounding Yarra Glen, Christmas Hills, located about 40 km north-east of Melbourne. The picturesque town of Yarra Glen lies between the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and the Yarra River , close to Toolangi State Forest and Kinglake National Park. The natural landscape in the area varies from the wetlands and small lakes beside the river, to pasture for grazing cows and horses, and the area is dotted with many wonderful vineyards, all with a pleasant backdrop of tree-covered mountain slopes. There have been vineyards in the Yarra Valley since the first vineyard was established at Yering Station in 1838 by the Ryrie Brothers. The vineyards were removed and replanted to pasture in the 1930s due to the failing economy and markets, but they were and re-established in the early 1960s. The main grape varieties grown in the area are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and there are now over 100 wineries in the Yarra Valley. The famous Yarra Valley Food Trail is a good guide to the area. It includes fresh food stalls for local produce sold at the farm gate, farmers markets, speciality food shops, restaurants and cafes and of course wineries and cellar doors. Vineyards and wineries in the area include: Balgownie Estate, Hanson - Tarrahill Vineyard, Lovey's Estate, Martha's in the Vineyard, Mt Hope Wines (Lovey Estate), Train Trak (Mayall Wines), Yarra Glen Wines, Yarra Ridge Vineyard, Yering Station.
