Top wines, a historic cellar door and an attractive corner of Victoria for lovers of food, wine and adventure: Provenance winery in Geelong has it all.

For wine-loving travellers, the route from Geelong to Henty in Victoria offers the opportunity to wend your way to fabulous wineries and restaurants via the dramatic cliffs and quiet coves of the iconic Great Ocean Road.

If you don’t have time to tour the whole stretch, however, Provenance allows you to taste wines from across this south-western corner of Victoria all in the one spot, just an hour’s drive from Melbourne. Named Best Value Winery of the Year at the Halliday Wine Companion Awards, Provenance not only offers highly rated wines at attractive prices but also the opportunity to sample these at an atmospheric cellar door.

The beautiful bluestone building, dating back to the 1870s, has a former life as a paper mill (hence the location at ‘Paper Mills Road’) and is perched on the banks of the Barwon River in Geelong. It’s an idyllic spot to try superb pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz, pinot gris and more from regions including Ballarat, Henty, Golden Plains and, of course, Geelong.

Provenance winery cellar door In line with the rest of the region, Provenance excels with pinot noir and chardonnay, but it also produces an exceptional shiraz that James Halliday has described as being ‘grossly underpriced’.

Whether for a day trip to kick back on the riverbank with wine and local snacks or as part of a larger adventure encompassing destination dining, stunning natural attractions and any number of neighbouring wineries, Provenance is a must-add to your touring hit list.

For a limited time, you can pick up a specially curated case of Provenance’s award-winning pinot noir and chardonnay (including three 97-pointers) hailing from across south-west Victoria, offering the chance to sample the differences from region to region. Browse the wines included below.

Pick up the above pack when you visit the cellar door or via the Provenance website.
