As pioneers of the Bellarine Peninsula Wine Region, Scotchmans Hill, has always been invested in pushing the boundaries. A passion for bold and exciting winemaking ensures the wines are made first and foremost for people to savour.
Our ability to make wines that are unique and instantly recognizable as our own comes from a respect and admiration for the earth we work on. Enhancing the characteristics of the land with minimal winemaking intervention.
Like all vineyards, we have a unique terroir encompassing the soil, climate and people. A sense of place. Derived from volcanic action, the basalt, black soils lend great depth and structure to our wines. High in iron, these soils are unique to Scotchmans Hill, its immediate surrounds and the Bellarine Peninsula.
Our vineyard management encompasses a combination of modern equipment and methods, married with traditional techniques. All vines are vertical shoot positioned to maximise vine balance and fruit exposure, and our newer vineyards are south facing to delay ripening. Our vines are generally cane pruned to maximise consistency and quality.
