Lethbridge Wine District

The Lethbridge Wine District includes wineries north west of Geelong near the towns of Lethbridge, Anakie. Maude and Bannockburn in the Geelong Wine Region, Victoria. The small rural town of Bannockburn is located just off the Midland Highway, about 22 km north-west of Geelong. The historic buildings at Bannockburn include the beautiful bluestone railway station and the gaol, built in 1860. You can sample the local varieties of Pinot, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet, Riesling and auvignon blanc at local Vineyards, that are produced with fruit from carefully grown vines and made using traditional techniques to allow the true terroir to be expressed. Their winemaking encompasses the full range traditional techniques. Some wineries conduct theri fermentations using indigenous yeast and employ pre- and post-fermentation maceration to produce the best tannin structure naturally. Extended lees contact is used for enhanced mouth feel, and all our oaked wines are made using the very best French oak barrels. Environmental sustainability is critical to many local wineries. One local winery is built from strawbales which provide excellent thermal qualities.

The Geelong Wine Region includes eight districts : Waurn Ponds ; Colac ; Curlewis ; Bellarine ; Werribee ; Lethbridge ; Bannockburn ; Batesford
