This small but historic wine region is found on the north-west doorstep of Melbourne, just beyond Tullamarine airport. Goona Warra Vineyard (790 Sunbury Rd, Sunbury, (03) 9740 7766) was established in 1863, and its winery is set in an original bluestone building. Craiglee (Sunbury Rd, Sunbury, (03) 9744 4489), just over the road, was established only a year later in 1864. Shiraz is the speciality of both labels, and Craiglee’s shiraz has won several trophies. Other wineries include Galli Estate (1507 Melton Hwy, Rockbank, (03) 9747 1444) and Wildwood (St Johns La, Bulla, (03) 9307 1118).
