Le Repaire de Bacchus ... "The Lair of the Roman god of Wine"
Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, discovered the culture of the vine and the method of extracting its precious nectar for man's gratification. We are happy to continue that tradition with love, skill and passion.
Our vineyard is located within the cool climate wine making region of Sunbury. It is set high on the hills overlooking the township of Bacchus Marsh. Our vines are hand pruned and our grapes are hand picked. They are grown on ancient, high level river terraces and gully alluvium, resulting in wines of great character and complexity.
We have an extensive range of wine styles including Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir-Merlot, Fragoletto, Nebbiolo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Lawson's Patch Rose, Sauvignon Blanc- Semillon, Semillon Demi-Sec. We also have our own fortified Muscat and Fragola and Sparkling Wines.
For your special occasions, Le Repaire de Bacchus with its picturesque scenery, provides a spectacular setting for Romantic Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, or other celebrations for up to 150 guests.
