Bell River Estate (formerly Markeita Cellars) is located 15kms south of Wellington on the Mitchell Highway, one hour from Orange or Dubbo and 5 hours from Sydney, in the Western Region of Central Ranges, New South Wales, Explorer Country.
Bell River Estate began life as Markeita Cellars around 1974 and was founded by Margherita and Keith Reinhard (hence the name). The Cellars were developed by the Reinhard family and specialised in producing quality fortified wines (ports and sherries) and red wine, predominantly Shiraz. The 40 acre property has 8 acres under vine, approximately 6 acres of Muscat, 1 acre of Shiraz and 1 acre of Waltham Cross table grapes. The wet springs, long hot summers and cool winters are ideal for vines and the business thrived under the Reinhard ownership.

In June 2000, the Reinhards retired to Wellington and sold the business to Sandra and Mick Banks and with the sale came the name change to Bell River Estate
