Hilltops

Located two hours from Canberra, the Hilltops region is regarded as cool-climate, with many vineyards sitting at an altitude of around 450 metres. The region has a continental climate, with relatively cool and wet winters. The summer months bring hot, dry days and cooler nights that complement the ripening season.

First planted with vines in the 1860s by Croatian immigrants following the gold rush, the Hilltops region began to come into its own in the 1980s and is now regarded as one of the most exciting cool-climate regions in Australia, producing particularly good Shiraz and Cabernet.
