Winephabet Street; Y is for Yarra Valley

August 12, 2019

Welcome back to Winephabet Street! Today Elmo’s letter of the day is Y and he is talking about the Yarra Valley in Australia! The region is named after the river originates approximately 90 kilometres east of the Melbourne central business district and flows towards it and out into Port Phillip Bay. The name Yarra Valley is used in reference to the upper regions surrounding the Yarra River and generally does not encompass the lower regions including the city and suburban areas.

So unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and enjoy this episode of Winephabet Street. We’ll give you the history, general characteristics, food pairings and give you facts to take away with you about the Yarra Valley. Have you had Yarra Valley wines? Send us a message to let us know!
