Barwon Ridge Wines

Barwon Ridge Wines

Our aim at Barwon Ridge is to express the characteristics of fine Geelong wines through the growing of premium grapes and production of quality distinctive wines.

Discover our hidden gem in the Barrabool Hills just 10 minutes west of Geelong. We planted in 1999 and there are approximately 3.6 hectares (9 acres) under vine. Our range of wines is Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Marsanne, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet/Shiraz and Sparkling Chardonnay/Pinot Noir.

The vineyard is located on a dry limestone ridge above the Barwon River and has sweeping views over the You Yangs.

We are following in the footsteps of the original Swiss vignerons  and are one of a small number of vineyards re-establishing in the Barrabool Hills after an absence of over 100 years.
All of our wines are vegan compliant
