5 Local Wineries To Visit This Weekend

The Bellarine Peninsula wine region is home to high-quality, handcrafted wines, with the coastal climate making perfect growing conditions for Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Sampling wine and enjoying sumptuous local produce is a great way to spend your down time, and you don’t have to travel far to do so. Take a look at our top picks for wineries within 30 minutes of Anchoridge.

Nicol’s Paddock

Just 15 minutes drive from Anchoridge is the neighboring suburb of Waurn Ponds, home to Nicol's Paddock. On offer at this cosy, family-run winery and restaurant is a selection of wines lovingly made and bottled on site. The dishes on the restaurant menu are designed for sharing and are made from locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. There’s even a vegan menu for plant-based diners.

Oakdene Vineyards

Set aside a day to visit Oakdene to explore the family-owned vineyard and cellar door, restaurant, cafe and lush gardens. There’s even boutique accommodation on site if you fancy a staycation. Staff at the cellar door are knowledgeable and passionate about local wines, and you can pick their brains while enjoying a seated tasting experience for only $10 per person.

Leura Park Estate

There’s always something happening at Leura Park Estate. In between weddings and functions, the winery regularly hosts activities including paint and sip classes. Or, if relaxing outdoors with a drink is more your thing, head along on a Sunday to hear live music from a range of talented artists while enjoying a tipple and a delicious lunch menu.

Basils Farm

With panoramic views across Swan Bay, Basils Farm is a must-visit winery about half an hour from Anchoridge. Basils Cafe is a gem for young families, with plenty to keep the little ones occupied while you sit back and take in the view. There’s a large sandpit and plenty of space for the kids to run around on the lawns, as well as a farm with llamas and sheep. Visit for lunch and for $10 extra, you’ll get an activity pack and the opportunity to meet and feed the animals.

Oneday Estate Winery

The newest of the local wineries is Oneday Estate, open only on Sundays for lunch and drinks. With an intriguing rustic interior, live music and a relaxed atmosphere, enjoy some tasty menu favourites like woodfired pizza, wagyu burgers, paella or snack on a cheese board while sampling the premium wines on offer.
