"All wines are made onsite in our small hands-on facility. We also make wine for some of the other vineyards in the area. We are very passionate about our wine and enjoy the closeness to our produce that being a small winery gives us".
Banks Road Vineyard is a boutique winery based in the Bellarine Peninsula just outside Geelong. They have approximately 12 acres of grapes planted and a cellar door that offers wholesome meals using local produce of the region. The vineyard is set in a rural environment with a contemporary setting surrounded by sculptures of renown artists, rows of vines and views of the picturesque Swan Bay.
Acknowledged in the 2014 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion as a 4.5 star winery.

Christian Eedes (show’s international judge) said: “A small flight of museum-class Marsanne was an absolute treat. Prior to my visit, I was unaware that these were a specialty of Victoria and what a discovery - great intensity of flavour at remarkably low alcohol levels. I appreciate that they don’t have a very wide popular following but all the more for the wine geeks!”
Barwon Ridge are doing all they can to broaden knowledge and appeal of this fantastic variety.
They will be re releasing the 2013 Marsanne some time in the future.
Go and try the 2010 and 2016 this weekend at their cellar door. ... See MoreSee Less
