A smaller set-up than Balgownie in the Yarra Valley but with good experienced staff it made for a very enjoyable day. This is one of the larger set ups in the Bendigo region which included an interesting section dedicated to the history of wine in the area as well as a large produce and gift section.
The wine is served in Riedel glassware even when you are just doing a tasting. The staff had great wine knowledge which was something you should expect in any professionally run cellar door. We ordered a couple of glasses of their wines with some platters of food and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon as we sat outside taking in the very wonderful Australian bush view overlooking the vineyard surrounded by gum trees. An enjoyable cellar door where you can also sample wines from Balgownie in the Yarra Valley. Comparing the same grape variety from different regions allows you to pick up the distinct characteristics and differeance that each region departs in the wine.

    A lovely weekend away in Bendigo included a visit to Balgownie Estate. A tasting plate and a cold glass of their bubbly, delicious.
