Kilgour Wines

Kilgour Wines

Kilgour Wines are elegant and reflective of the Bellarine’s maritime climate, with the vineyard only a stones throw from the coastline.

Family owned and operated, Kilgour Wines is a boutique vineyard located in McAdams Lane on the northern coast of the Bellarine Peninsula; overlooking Port Phillip Bay and the You Yangs with views to Melbourne’s city skyline.

Anne Timms is the founder behind the Kilgour name, which all began with the planting of her first vines in 1989. Anne quickly became a pioneer of the Geelong food and wine scene; winning may prestigious awards for her fruit-driven wines and establishing the former-iconic winery & restaurant in 1996 – Kilgour Estate
