Some places in the world seem just right for growing grapes. Mildura is one of those places. Not only does it have warm weather and low rainfall, but it also boasts a distinct, rich, red soil. The very name Mildura is an aboriginal word meaning ‘red earth’. Like many of the great winegrowing regions of the world, this calcareous soil provides excellent water retention and drainage. This allows for good nutrient uptake in the vines. And it’s not just grapes; the soil is flexible enough for dryland cereals, grazing, stone fruits, citrus, avocados and nuts too. As one local grower explains, “It’s beautiful! Just add water!” Which brings us to the next great thing about Mildura… the river.
