Region Geelong

Geelong

Victoria’s first commercial wine was produced in Geelong by Swiss immigrants in 1845. During the mid- 1800’s Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria with 400 hectares under vine. When phylloxera struck in the 1870s however, the vines were decimated and it was not until the late 1960’s that the area’s vineyards were re-established. Located about 80 km southwest of Melbourne, Geelong has a cool maritime climate with low rainfall and prevalent cool blustery winds that affect flowering and Franceuit set. Soils are diverse, mostly volcanic over limestone with some lesser quality black soils. The region is dotted primarily with family owned wineries producing small quantities of high quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winery BANNOCKBURN VINEYARDS

The late Stuart Hooper established Bannockburn in 1974. Located just northwest of Geelong, the winery is one of Australia's leading Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers. Bannockburn’s Pinot Noir clone was brought out as part of the James Busby collection, originally planted in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney and sourced from Clos Vougeot. Indeed, the vines look remarkably similar to their Burgundian antecedents. All of Bannockburn’s wines are made from estate-grown fruit. The dry-grown vineyard area spans 27 ha across 3 separate sites. Organic viticulture is practiced and together with a philosophy of low intervention winemaking, ensures each wine in the range expresses a distinct sense of regional identity and place.
