Balgownie Estate

Victoria | Bendigo

Our Review

Balgownie Estate is the senior citizen of Bendigo, its original vineyard plantings now 50 years old. The estate also has a cellar door at 1309 Melba Hwy in the Yarra Valley (Yarra Glen), where operations fit in neatly with the Bendigo wines. Balgownie has the largest vineyard-based resort in the Yarra Valley, with over 65 rooms and a limited number of spa suites. In Apr '16 a Chinese investment company purchased the Balgownie Bendigo and Yarra Valley operations for $29 million. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Fiji, Hong Kong, Singapore and NZ. -JAMES HALLIDAY
