Balgownie Estate

Victoria | Bendigo

James' Review

Balgownie Estate is the senior citizen of Bendigo, having celebrated its 40th vintage in 2012. A $3 million winery upgrade coincided with a doubling of the size of the vineyard. Balgownie Estate also has a cellar door in the Yarra Valley (Yarra Glen). The Yarra Valley operation fits 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 April ’16 Chinese Interactive China Cultural Technology Investments purchased the Balgownie Bendigo and Yarra Valley operations for $29 million. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Fiji, Hong Kong, Singapore, China and NZ.
