climate Nagambie District includes wineries near Nagambie, Murchison, Whroo, Graytown in the Goulburn Valley. Nagambie Lakes is a sub-region of the Lower Goulburn Valley and includes the area surrounding the Nagambie Lakes system, which is a large body of water consisting of lakes, lagoons, billabongs and streams that are part of the Goulburn River. The region also adjoins the Upper Goulburn Valley and Strathbogie Ranges Regions. The lakes have an important influence on the climate, leading to fewer frosts and milder summer temperatures and than the surrounding areas. The area also has deep, red duplex soil laced with iron oxide overlaying gravelly, sandy, alluvial soil deposited on the floodplain of the Goulburn River. The region has many cellar doors, wonderful restaurants and amny attractions and activities offered by the lakes, the historic Goulburn Weir and the Goulburn river upstream and downstream. Local events include the World's Longest Lunch held in March, and the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge in October. Grapes have been grown and wine made continuously in the area since 1850 and two of the best known wineries are Tahbilk and Mitchelton Wines, and many other local boutique producers including: Goulburn Terrace, David Traeger Wines, Dalfarras Wines, Burramurra Wines and McGee Wines. The region has recently seen the development of Rhone varieties such as Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne, which have added to the more traditional varieties of Riesling, Verdelho, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Rainfall in the area is low: summers are hot, while winters are cool and there are distinct seasonal changes. The moderating effect of the lakes means that the region is less susceptible to frost, and has higher minimum temperature and lower maximum temperature during the growing season than in the Goulburn Valley Region.
