At Scotchmans Hill our philosophy is to make wines of great elegance, depth & complexity

Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill is located in the heart of the Bellarine Peninsula. A producer of premium cool maritime climate wines, Scotchmans Hill has been a leading local winery for over thirty years and is rated among James Halliday’s Top 100 Australian Wineries. Bellarine Peninsula grown labels include Cornelius, Scotchmans Hill and Swan Bay.

The immaculately maintained vineyards overlook Port Phillip Bay, and the wines are a true reflection of this environment. Other labels are also developed both from the greater Geelong area as well as key winemaking regions of Australia and New Zealand.
