Bellbrae Estate

The First Taste of the Great Ocean Road

Bellbrae Estate Winery was established in 1999 on a beautiful section of rolling hills, five minutes from world famous Bells Beach, in the Surf Coast region of Victoria.

The wines we produce all have strong varietal character with excellent flavour intensity. Our flagship Bellbrae Estate wines are the pinnacle of our releases. Quality French oak and traditional winemaking techniques add to the excellence of this range. They are wonderfully drinkable now but are all made to benefit from further cellaring.

The Longboard range of wines are a true expression of the region with their exuberant flavours and are a great match for our local produce. Made more to drink now, they are all bursting with freshness and taste, perfect for the relaxed lifestyle we love here on the Surf Coast.

Our logo, the names given to the Bellbrae Estate Wines and the image on the Longboard range highlight the extraordinary coastline we share, the incredible surf breaks and the iconic local surfers from the region.
