Geelong is a wine region located in the state of Victoria, Australia. It is situated approximately 75 kilometers (46 miles) southwest of Melbourne, the closest major city. Geelong encompasses the areas around the city of Geelong and extends to the Bellarine Peninsula and the Moorabool Valley.

The Geelong wine region experiences a maritime climate influenced by its proximity to the Southern Ocean. The region benefits from cool ocean breezes that help moderate temperatures, resulting in a long, cool growing season. This climate is particularly well-suited for the production of cool-climate varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The viticulture history in Geelong dates back to the 19th century when the first vines were planted by European settlers. However, it wasn't until the 1970s and 1980s that the modern wine industry in Geelong began to emerge. During this time, winemakers recognized the region's potential for producing high-quality wines and started focusing on premium grape varieties.Well-Known Wineries:Oakdene Vineyards,Jack Rabbit Vineyard, Leura Park Estate, Bellarine Estate, Lethbridge Wines.
