50th birthday celebrations for Balgownie Estate

Balgownie Estate is turning 50 this year and to celebrate the Bendigo-based winery is hosting a range of community events to mark the occasion.


Located just under two-hours from Melbourne, Balgownie Estate Bendigo – the oldest wine producer in the region - makes complex cabernet, shiraz and chardonnay.

Balgownie Estate Bendigo has more than 70 acres of vines enabling the winery to experiment with trends crafting and producing lighter, earlier drinkable wines – which are set to be showcased across all festivities and events throughout the 50th anniversary event celebrations.

To commemorate the milestone Balgownie Estate is releasing 50 cases of a new limited-edition 2015 Old Vine Cabernet ($120) - vintaged entirely from original 1969 cabernet sauvignon plantings.

“The Old Vine Cabernet is a beautifully complex wine with a concentration of savoury flavours and supple fine tannins to close on the long finish and is a perfect wine to celebrate this half a century milestone” said Balgownie Estate chief winemaker Tony Winspear.

The celebrations will include wine dinners and a free community day with live music, food stalls and wine games for those looking for more light-hearted fun.

Balgownie’s 50th Anniversary Wine Making Dinner showcasing limited-edition releases will be held at Ryne in North Fitzroy on September 4.
