Glenalbyn vineyard was planted by Jack and Lee Gillespie, along the creek flats of the Old Kingower Creek, in rich, red loam over a lyaer of clay and limestone, located within Bendigo region of Victoria Goldfields, in Melbourne Surrounds.

The vines are not irrigated which enhances the fruity, berry flavour and the intense colour to produce boutique wines.

Making the wines is definitely a hands-on operation. The grapes are hand picked, pressed and fermented in open stainless steel vats. The wine is pressed and pumped into French oak barrels to mature. It is estate bottled with a minimum of filtration.

After six generations the Hall/Gillespie family is still farming Glenalbyn Grange.

Glenalbyn Grange and property is registered by the Historic Buildings Council, the Australian Heritage Commission and classified by the National Trust (Vic).


The cellar door (the no-longer-used dairy) of Glenalbyn Grange, a double brick building. Has been insulated and adapted for the Cellar Door. Its windows look out onto the garden. It exudes a very convivial atmosphere.
