Toast to the Coast – Surf Coast Program

By October 14, 2016Toast to the Coast

Famous for the Great Ocean Road, the Surf Coast is gaining a reputation for producing extraordinary wines from the Coast lashed by the violent weather of Bass Strait.

Such a close proximity to the ocean makes growing in sandy loam challenging. The Region’s winemakers have risen to the challenge and are producing some extraordinary wines from these harsh conditions.
