Millicent and eastwards to the Victorian border. It includes wineries surrounding the
townships of Mount Gambier, Kongorong, Moorak, Marte, Wandilo and Dartboogie.
The wine growers in the area are supported by the Mount Gambier Regional Winegrowers Association which was formed in June 2003.

include more than twenty growers and several wineries.
