King Valley Venture

Peel back a layer and rediscover your beloved King Valley

We don't need to tell you of the renowned beauty of the King Valley, or its reputation for delicious Italian varietal wines and mouthwatering food.

The King Valley is a big place, however, with many quiet little corners and humble producers. In fact, we guarantee there's places you've not yet discovered - experiences soon to occupy a favourite place in your memories...

This journey will see you stay in elegant yet charmingly unorthodox accommodation, indulge in a brand new, exclusive wine experience with the Dal Zotto family themselves, walk to majestic falls and lookouts, visit historic wineries, unique micro-breweries and eat delicious local produce every meal of the day.
