One of the benefits of living in a region with such beautiful vineyards and wineries would have to be the access to special events and promotions - and those times when the winemaker decides he needs some room, has a spring (our autumn) clean and opens up the doors to the winery cellar or barrel hall for a special sale!
Such a sale is happening in the Barrel Hall at Scotchmans Hill on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. Get access to some fantastic back vintage specials, vintage ends, unlabelled bottles and cases at clearance prices – all to make room for the delicious new vintage wines our team are working on.
Some of the wines included will be award winning Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc, a few varietals from ‘over the ditch’ as well as a range of delicious Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Vintage Brut Sparkling, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most wines will be available to taste so get in early to get the pick of your favourites.
At the winery: 190 Scotchmans Road, Drysdale Victoria 3222
Saturday 28th May and Sunday 29th May, 10:30am - 4:30pm
We are very excited to be growing our special partnership with RSPCA Victoria by participating in the Geelong and Albert Park Million Paws Walk events this Sunday the 15th of May.

We hope you see you and your furry friends there.
