Bellbrae Estate

Bellbrae Estate

Find something you love

Bellbrae Estate is fortunate to be situated right in the heart of one of the world’s most magnificent stretches of coastline: Victoria’s Surf Coast, and like those pioneers of the waves from the 1950s through – those people that lived their lives in order to get back to ‘their’ breaks – here at Bellbrae Estate we want to remind you of what life is truly about. Enjoyment. Finding something you love. Dreaming.

That is why we have named our Bellbrae Estate wines – handcrafted and made from predominantly estate-grown fruit, this is our dream realised– after our local surf breaks. Cheeky though some of those names are, they locate our wines firmly within their regional context, and it is this region that we celebrate with our wines.

Elegant, contemporary wines made from estate and select Geelong region fruit our two ranges include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz Rose, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Sparkling Shiraz Pinot Noir.
