Hannah Nowlan's first solo exhibition, Myths, Moons and Mountains.


Scotchmans Hill are proud to support an emerging artist, Hannah Nowlan at her first solo exhibition, Myths, Moons and Mountains. 

Hannah’s work has received much admiration and has been widely acquired.  Hannah says that her art has always paid homage to the rugged yet relaxed atmosphere of the Victorian coastline, and her travel through Portugal and Spain has evolved these elements further.

The exhibition is being hosted by Fitzroy furniture and design store Modern Times, one of Melbourne’s favourite furniture and design stockists.

Guests will be invited to enjoy our Jack & Jill wines at the Exhibition whilst they admire Hannah’s artwork.

Exhibition Opening

Visit Bellarine Peninsula with the new Portarlington Ferry and Winery Tours!



Visit Bellarine Peninsula with the new Portarlington Ferry and Winery Tours! 


Looking for something different to do this summer?  How does visiting some of the states best wineries without having to set foot in your car sound!  Too good to be true! We think not. 

Port Phillip Ferries have recently launched their new services running several times per day between Docklands and Portarlington and have now partnered with Scotchmans Hill, Terindah Estate, Bellarine Estate Winery Brewery and Bennetts on Bellarine to offer a jump on/jump off complimentary service for wine lovers available from Saturday 17th December, 2016.  

Arrive in Portarlington and be dropped off at your first winery for a tasting, head to the second for lunch and tasting and tie the whole day up with a final tasting before heading back to Portarlington for the trip home. 

On weekends the service departs Docklands at 7.15am, 10.45am and 5.45pm arriving in Portarlington 90 minutes later with return ferries departing Portarlington at 9.00am, 4.00pm and 7.30pm. On arrival at Portarlington a bus will meet the Port Phillip Ferry and run a continuous loop throughout the day to the 4 wineries – ensuring you are back at the ferry to catch your return home.  For weekday schedules see



The Wineries: 



Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill is located in the heart of the Bellarine Peninsula. A producer of premium cool maritime climate wines, Scotchmans Hill has been a leading local winery for over thirty years and is rated among James Halliday’s Top 100 Australian Wineries. The immaculately maintained vineyards and picnic areas overlook Port Phillip Bay, and the wines are a true reflection of this superb environment. 



Bennetts on Bellarine offer a casual, rustic and relaxed atmosphere to taste wines under the shade of gum trees. Immerse yourself with views of the You Yangs and experience true down to earth family hospitality with engaging conversation, and an afternoon you won’t forget.



Bringing together award-winning wines, delectable food and spectacular views across Port Phillip Bay, is one of the Bellarine Peninsula's most beautiful boutique venues - Terindah Estate. We offer cellar door wine tastings daily as well as lunch in The Shed Thursday through to Monday.  Taste delicious wine and food, see the mussel farmers in the local waters, take a stroll through the fig trees or the vines and experience all that Terindah has to offer. As per its name - Terindah is Indonesian for 'most beautiful''.  



Bellarine Estate Winery Brewery operates an award winning restaurant and function facility to complement its award winning wines. Established in 1996 Bellarine Estate is one of the oldest wineries on the Bellarine Peninsula. Realising there was also a niche market for beer on the Bellarine Peninsula, Two Wives Brewery was created. Established in 2007, the brewery produces exceptional quality ginger beer, ales and stouts. The beers are distinctly different, full of character and flavour as only quality microbrewed beer can deliver.
