Banks Road Vineyard

Banks Road Vineyard

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.
A boutique winery based in the Bellarine Peninsula just outside Geelong.  We 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. Bistro at Banks is now open with fabulous food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, matched to our wonderful wines. Nathan & Kate will be happy to make your reservation on 03 5221 2405
