Located in Avoca, Blue Pyrenees Estate boasts a hefty history, dating back to 1963. A pioneer in cool-climate viticulture since it first started out, it's long been one of the area's mainstays — with its 150-hectare property featuring plenty of vines, eye-catching gardens and a lake, and surrounded by a forest and mountains.
Blue Pyrenees not only grows and picks its own grapes, but also makes its wine solely from said fruit, then packages it and sells it onsite. Taking a few cues from French-style vino, its range spans reds, whites, sparkling and rosé. Can't choose? Blue Pyrenees Estate's cabernet sauvignon was a double gold medal-winner at the 2020 China Wine and Spirits Awards, and features blackberry, leafy and oaky tastes.
For those in the region, Blue Pyrenees' cellar door does tastings for $5, serves up quite the view and also lets patrons borrow a complimentary picnic rug. And, you can grab lunch, coffee or dessert from the cafe as well.
