McGlashans Wallington Estate

McGlashans Wallington Estate

Call in and enjoy our friendly hospitality and have a browse while enjoying the view over the vineyard with a glass of estate grown wines.

Russell and Jan McGlashan began establishment of their 10 hectare vineyard at 225 Swan Bay Road, Wallington in 1995. Four varieties are now planted including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Shiraz.

The sandy loam over buck shot clay provides the perfect soil structure for production of their premium cool climate wines.

Winemaker, Robin Brocket uses French Oak to mature the wines for 12 months prior to bottling.

The wines are multi award winning including two Gold medals, one Silver medal and one Bronze medal at the 2010 Geelong Wine Show (most successful Bellarine exhibitor at the Show) and have received a Five Star rating in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion.

The new cellar door has now opened and offers wine tasting and sales, along with gourmet grazing platters and freshly made focaccia’s available throughout the day.

A maritime and automotive memorabilia display is located in the cellar door along with classic car exhibitions.

Abalone sales of export quality are available at the cellar door.
