Baillieu Vineyard was founded by Charlie and Samantha Baillieu in 1999. It’s located in Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula. The wines are produced using estate grown grapes from their 64 hectares of land and is named as ‘Bulldog Run’. This picturesque property has been bestowed with natural bushland, fresh water and native grasses. However, the area was regenerated to grow grapes. On the north side, the site receives strong sunshine which provides perfect ripening conditions for the grapes along with loamy soil. The impressive terroir yields excellent quality of grapes to make wines.
