This vineyard is owned by German residents Dr Willi and Gudrun Schumacher. Long-term wine lovers, the Schumachers decided to establish a vineyard and winery of their own, choosing Australia partly because of its stable political climate. The vineyard is planted to riesling, pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz, sauvignon blanc and petit verdot. The flagship wines are 3 styles of riesling – dry, off-dry and sweet. Exports to the UK, the US, Germany and China.
Bellarmine vineyard is 20 hectares in size. Varieties planted include Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The vines sit on an elevated site 220 metres above sea level. Sand dunes located on the south coast about 50km away can be seen from the vineyard. Soils are gravel laterite. Irrigation is used very rarely in this high rainfall area. Ever since the first vintage in 2004, Bellarmine has consistently produced stunning wines. Bellarmine Wines is rated 5 stars out of five by renowned wine writer James Halliday.
