Welcome to the website for Ballarat and District Vigneron's Association.
Just 113kms west of Melbourne and only a mere hour and 15 minutes away from
the CBD is the Ballarat Wine and Food Region.
The Region takes in the areas of Buninyong, Scotsburn, Invermay, Blampied,
Smythesdale, Coghills Creek and Clunes making the
region an easy wine-buying self-drive. Visitors can discover boutique
vineyards; meet passionate winemakers eager to share their latest drops and
discuss how they are crafted or enjoy a lazy weekend lunch at some of the cellar
doors. The Region hosts a number of events throughout the year including
Ballarat By The Glass held during the month of November.
