Bennetts on Bellarine Winery
Bennetts on Bellarine is a family run business situated on the corner of Macadams Lane and Portarlington Road. Their Cellar Door is a relaxed open air venue set against the backdrop of a rustic 100 year old Dairy. Sit under the sugar gums and enjoy a cheese platter as you sip wine from a broad tasting menu.
This charming vineyard offers old fashioned hospitality and a friendly atmosphere. Jamieson Bennett has an extensive hospitality background and believes in hands on involvement with his product and contact with his customers. He and his family are personally involved in the pruning and wrapping of vines in winter and in the ongoing maintenance and care during summer. Nurturing each plant through to harvest in March ensures quality grapes and a great vintage.
The 130 year old Victorian Weatherboard home with its elegant wrought iron laced veranda, is well known to locals as a beautiful landmark half way from Drysdale to Portarlington, surrounded by old peppercorn trees it takes you back to another era.
So drop in and enjoy the great wines as you gaze across the sheep paddocks and vines to the You Yangs.
