climate The Lethbridge Wine District includes wineries north west of Geelong near the towns of Lethbridge, Anakie. Maude and Bannockburn in the Geelong Wine Region, Victoria. The small rural town of Bannockburn is located just off the Midland Highway, about 22 km north-west of Geelong. The historic buildings at Bannockburn include the beautiful bluestone railway station and the gaol, built in 1860. You can sample the local varieties of Pinot, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet, Riesling and auvignon blanc at Bannockbun Vineyards, located on the Midland Highway. The Estate Vineyard in Lethbridge, originally planted in 1874, was extensively replanted by the owners of Lethbridge Wines in 1996. The owners believe in the importance of terroir (soil, aspect, climate and bio-diversity) in the production of distinctive wines and that the best wines express the unique character of the special places from which they originate. 'Real wine' is their passion, wines that are produced with fruit from carefully grown vines and made using traditional techniques to allow the true terroir to be expressed. Their winemaking encompasses the full range traditional techniques. They conduct fermentations using indigenous yeast and employ pre- and post-fermentation maceration to produce the best tannin structure naturally. Extended lees contact is used for enhanced mouth feel, and all our oaked wines are made using the very best French oak barrels. Environmental sustainability is critical to what we do. Consistent with our philosophy of minimal impact, our winery is built from strawbales which provide excellent thermal qualities. The other vineyards and wineries in the area include: Amietta Winery, Anakie Ridge, Del Rios of Mt. Anakie, Lethbridge Wines, Moorabool Ridge, Mt Anakie Estate, River Moorabool Estate, Staughton Vale Vineyard, Tarcoola Estate, Vale Wines, Zambelli Estate Wines.
