Welcome to Barwon Ridge
At Barwon Ridge we produce award winning Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Marsanne, sparkling Chardonnay/Pinot Noir, Rosé and fortified Shiraz in the beautiful Barrabool Hills. We planted our first vines in 1999 and all of our wines are vegan.
Our vineyard is approximately 1 hour south-west of Melbourne and just west of the Geelong Ring Road (take the Fyansford or Ceres turnoffs). It is a great place to visit on the way down the Great Ocean Road and Bellarine Peninsula.

Ongoing history of winemaking in the Barrabool Hills
The Barrabool Hills has a history of grape growing stretching back to 1841 when Fredrick Brequet and David Pettavel planted the first vineyard at Pollocksford. Barwon Ridge is part of the re-emergence of fine winemaking in the Barrabool Hills.
