Sandhurst Ridge is one of the gems of the Bendigo region. This boutique winery has been producing award-winning wines since their first vintage in 1995.
Sandhurst Ridge wines are handcrafted by the owners, brothers Paul and George Greblo, who are proud to be continuing a family tradition of winemaking which began generations ago in northern Italy.
The picturesque vineyard nestles against a state forest, and is planted to shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, sauvignon blanc, and in tribute to their Italian origins, a Nebbiolo. Ralph Kyte-Powell awarded this winery four and a half stars to this "intriguing Bendigo red".
Being only 15 minutes from the centre of Bendigo, virtually guarantees an informative conversation with someone with hands-on knowledge of the vines as well as the wines, since Paul (the winemaker) and George (the vineyard manager) reside on the estate and it is a Italian family run business.
Boutique, self-contained vineyard accommodation is available at Sandhurst Ridge. They provide two one-bedroom cottages, for visitors who wish to stay longer in the Bendigo wine region. The accommodation is brand new as it only opened in 2012.
When staying at Sandhurst Boutique Vineyard accommodation you can borrow one of their mountain bikes so then you can explore the Bendigo Winery Cycling Trail. View their website for further information.
