Bellarine Tast Trail

Wineries

 

You're spoilt for choice of wineries on the Bellarine Taste Trail. They make a large range of cool-climate wines, including: pinot noir, pinot gris, pinot grigio, chardonnay, riesling, sauvignon blanc, zinfandel, gewürztraminer, shiraz, viognier, merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.

Some only have half an acre under vine, while others export all over the world and count themselves among the largest privately owned vineyards in Victoria. Many have excellent inviting cellar door outlets, some award-winning restaurants and you can even stay at one of them (Oakdene). Browse our wineries and plan your next winey weekend.
