From the first vintage in 2004, made by winemaker Diane Miller, the wines have received widespread critical acclaim and won numerous awards. Rated red 5 stars by James Halliday, the winery is proud to be part of the high quality Pemberton region. Bellarmine is featured in James Halliday's book, Top 100 Wineries of Australia.
