Originally a Central Victorian High Country region was proposed, encompassing both the Upper Goulburn and Strathbogie Ranges, but the decision to split the two regions was clearly correct. This is a seriously cool area, with mountains up to 1800 metres, and vineyards planted as high as 800 metres (and as low as 250 metres). It is one of the few Victorian regions without a history of nineteenth- century viticulture: it may well have seemed to be too cold.
