Bendooley Estate

Every great wine begins its journey in the Vineyard. This is certainly true of  the Bendooley Vineyard wines with the hands on approach of our viticulturist Ben Brazenor. With a rich agarian history, Bendooley sits at an elevation of 600 meters above sea level, just outside the historic township of Berrima in the Southern Highlands, NSW.

Our 3500 vines revel in rich red volcanic soil. Nobel grapes such as the Burgundy varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the subtle headiness of the famed Merlot known for producing fine Bordeaux and the enticing Pinot Gris of Alsace, thrive in the Bendooley Vineyard.

The Southern Highlands provides warm days and long cool evenings through the ripening period. Our fruit remains on the vines longer resulting in fruit- forward, aromatic styles with good cellaring potential.

Considered cropping ensures intense fruit flavours of the Bendooley Vineyard range which already shows great promise in both the show circuit and the public domain. The gentle handling of the grapes in the vineyard is what sets it apart as a brand of great potential and distinction.

Housed in the iconic Berkelouw Book Barn in Berrima NSW, the Cellar Door is stocked with beautiful handcrafted boutique wines. Produced under the Bendooley Vineyard label are such classic varietals as Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, our highly prized Ex Libris, a Merlot Cabernet blend and a cool climate Shiraz Cabernet blend.

Less than 2 hours journey from Sydney, Canberra or Wollongong, Bendooley Vineyard Cellar Door welcomes you to taste the full range of our wines. The Cellar Door is happily located beside the new restaurant that provides tasty platters to share, delightful light lunches and hearty meals.

Open Wednesday to Sunday  10am-5pm.

Groups are most welcome to Bendooley Vineyard with prior arrangement.
