Makers & Growers

Clyde Park, Moorabool Valley

Handmade With Love By Locals

Family owned vineyards, boutique producers and organic farmers grow and make their food and wine in traditional, high-quality ways.  

Hand picked, hand milked, hand made - often by members of the same family, always by people who share a passion for good produce. Gourmet tastes that call Geelong and The Bellarine home include wine, beer, cider, cheese, olives and olive oil, seafood, chocolate, vegetables and fruit. In many cases, you can visit the sites and meet the people behind the produce.
