Ararat's wine region has gone virtual with the new website Made the Grampians Way.
Ararat Rural City, in collaboration with the Grampians Winemakers Inc and Grampians Tourism, launched the website which will feature a range of products from local wineries.
"The collaboration from local winemakers and groups is resulting in a great platform to support our region through COVID- 19 and bringing us more into the digital space," said chairman of Grampians Winemakers Inc. Damian Sheehan.
The region has almost 20 wineries. Each putting their best foot forward, they have carefully selected bottles for the wine packs - 'Seriously Shiraz' and the 'Award-Winning Mixed Dozen' will feature the region's signature shiraz.
The site also gives people a feel for the region, through the eyes of the growers and producers, who are a vital part of the region's culture.
ARCC chief executive Dr Tim Harrison said it was great to have worked with the various groups to create a website that showcases the region.

"It's great that all of these groups have come together to help keep such a vital part of our region alive through this difficult time.
"People near and far will be able to experience the region virtually and try our renowned wines."
