Welcome to Eagles Rise vineyard and Wild Wine. From our spectacular site perched above the Moorabool River valley near Bannockburn, Geelong, we make a range of commercial and wild ferment wines from our 20 acre vineyard.

Over a decade ago David Dillon reaffirmed his love of the region when he established Eagles Rise vineyard on a patch of red soil over limestone, above the waterholes he used to fish as a teenager. Together with his wife Erica, they continue to tend the vines, make the multi medal winning single vineyard wines and serve the growing congregation of customers at their restored 1880’s Sunday Schoolhouse cellar door.

Their range included the Moorabool Valley’s only sparkling wines as well as conventional and natural indigenous ferment wines (under the “Wild Wine” label).

The Schoolhouse now stocks an equally impressive range of old fashioned confectionery, to hold the attention of little ones while you sample some delicious wines and take in the magnificent view through to Geelong from their verandah.
