Curlewis Winery is situated on the Bellarine Peninsula, near Geelong, one hours drive south-west of Melbourne.
Family owned artisan producers Stefano and Leesa produce premium highly-concentrated, complex and elegant wines. The wines are hand-made; minimal intervention and traditional French wine-making principles are used. They aim to produce wines of greater concentration and flavour ripeness yet still with the full length of palate that goes with ultra premium wines the world over. They are one of the smallest producers in the Geelong wine region however the high quality sees the wines appear on some of the best wine lists in Australia.
Wines produced are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah/shiraz and Charneis, a blend of the Italian varietal Arneis with Chardonnay.
Curlewis Winery's cellar door 'Appellation' is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am. It is easy to get comfortable in. Outside it looks like a barn; inside it looks like a hunter’s cabin got the Queer Eye treatment. Choose the tunes from the stack of LPs. In winter relax by the fire or in warmer weather relax in the garden areas overlooking the vineyard or the beer hops. Peckish? Enjoy delicious sharing platters of the finest charcutterie, cheeses, pizziettas and more.
