Australian wine is back in favour, and the industry has a new spring in its step after the tit for tat sanctions that crippled the wine industry were withdrawn by the Chinese government.

For many in the industry the anti-dumping duties imposed on Australian wine makers were disastrous, but those who focused on the domestic wine market, and were also tourism and events focused, fared a lot better.

One vineyard that excelled during this difficult period was Terindah Estate on the Bellarine, and it now comes to market as a success story, just as the industry overall hits a positive turning point.

Terindah Estate has been brought to market by Savills Australia and New Zealand and Elders who have been instructed to sell the property by Mark Wizel & Lewis Tong of Advise Transact, who are transaction managing the c

ampaign on behalf of the vendors.

Located at 90 McAdams Lane in Bellarine, Terindah Estate is one

of the peninsula’s finest boutique vineyards that spans across 98.34 acres, offering an unrivalled opportunity for investors to own a slice of luxury in the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula.

With its multiple gourmet dining, entertaining, and wedding venue spaces overlooking the panoramic vistas of Port Phillip Bay towards the Melbourne CBD skyline, Terindah Estate stands as a beacon of excellence in the region.

State director at Savills Australia and New Zealand, Julian Heatherich, said that Terindah Estate represents a rare chance to own a vineyard of this calibre.

“Its prime location, combined with the established vineyard producing award-winning wines, makes it an exceptional opportunity for an investor or owner alike,” Mr Heatherich said.

“With its excellent support infrastructure, including gourmet restaurants, bars, function venues, and glamping sites, Terindah Estate is primed for continued success in the thriving wine and tourism industries of the Bellarine Peninsula.”

The sale marks the end of an era under the stewardship of late owner, Peter Slattery, and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for this beloved boutique winery and venue.

Reflecting on her husband’s indelible imprint on the estate, Cate Slattery shared how Peter saw just how special the property could be.

“His vision, love, and dedication transformed Terindah Estate into the exceptional destination it is today,” Cate said.

State manager at Elders, Nick Myer, added that the Bellarine

Peninsula holds a rich history as a powerhouse location for viticulture.

“Terindah Estate encapsulates the essence of this region, offering not just a vineyard, but an experience of unparalleled beauty and sophistication.”

The Estate boasts a 5.73-hectare vineyard featuring a variety of premium grape varieties, supported by a strategically developed irrigation system and abundant water supply.

Its proximity to key transport links and tourist attractions further enhances its appeal to investors seeking a premier lifestyle, viticultural, or agricultural endeavour.

Overlooking stunning coastal vistas, Terindah Estate’s onsite amenities include meticulously presented dining, entertaining, and wedding venues, including ‘The Shed’, ‘Peter’s Odyssey Tram Bar’, and ‘The Deck & Mezzanine’.

‘The Shed’ offers panoramic views of the vineyard and surrounding environment with indoor and alfresco dining options for up to 80 patrons.

‘Peter’s Odyssey Tram Bar’ provides uninterrupted ocean views and can accommodate up to 90 patrons, while ‘The Dec

k & Mezzanine’ offer the perfect setting for private events with a capacity of up to 100 guests.

An onsite manager’s residence comprising four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a kitchen, laundry, living and dining room as well as a three-sided, fully enclosed and lockable 160sm machinery shed make up the support infrastructure at Terindah Estate.

Geelong and its surrounding area offer a wealth of attractions, including family-owned vineyards, breweries, boutique accommodations, historic townships, renowned golf courses, pristine coastlines, and natural landscapes of unparalleled beauty.

With tourism booming, drawing 6.2 million visitors in 2023 alone, the Bellarine Peninsula presents an exceptional opportunity for growth.

Moreover, the region’s accessibility is unparalleled, with daily ferry services between Portarlington and Melbourne, coupled with close proximity to major arterial roads such as the Princes Freeway, Bellarine Highway, and Portarlington Road.
