The Tumbarumba Vignerons Association (TVA) represents the winegrowers of the Tumbarumba wine region – a group of people who are passionate about growing super-premium cool climate wine grapes in the western foothills of the Snowy Mountains in Australia, half way between Sydney and Melbourne.
Super-premium wine grapes have been produced in the region since the early 1980’s. Chardonnay and classic sparkling wines are the local heroes. While they are the wines most often associated with Tumbarumba, superb cool-climate Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Shiraz, Merlot, Tempranillo and Viognier are also produced.
The Tumbarumba region (declared by the Geographic Indicators Committee on 10th December 1998) comprises the Tumbarumba Shire and adjoining areas, such as Lankeys Creek to the south-west and Humula to the west.
