Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill is the Bellarine Peninsula’s oldest and largest winery.

“GOOD wine can be made in the winery, but great wine is made in the vineyard.”

Chief winemaker Robin Brockett says Scotchmans Hill focuses on managing the vineyard to produce the healthiest, clean and intense fruit characters possible.

The ability to make wines that are unique and instantly recognisable as their own, comes from a respect and admiration for the land they work on – enhancing the characteristics of the land and the fruit with minimal winemaking intervention.
