Victoria has it all when it comes to winery regions; from a region devoted to the fine art of Prosecco to colder climates by the sea that make a delicious pinot noir. From manicured gardens to rolling green hills. Countryside escapes and closer to the city settings – if you ever wanted to get married at a winery? Victoria might be the place for you.
Today, we’re kicking off your own winery wedding venue search by rounding up 30 different options. There are endless wineries when it comes to Victoria, so we can’t list them all. But these? They’re a good mix of locations, styles, settings, and even budget. So consider this your helping hand.
