Bellbrae estate winery is located on the Great Ocean Road in Bellbrae, 10 minutes from Torquay, 5 from Jan juc and 2-3 from Bells Beach. It is a small winery in the scheme of things, but on Sunday afternoons in the warmer months, it is a truly great place to be. Outside of the single small room establishment is a shady area with picnic tables, adjacent to which is a huge grassed area amongst a number of pines. And on Sunday afternoons, the air is filled with live music and groovy tunes.

You can settle for a glass of wine, or a bottle, and if you are after something to eat there are light meals or a selection of delicious platters! And if wine is not your thing there are a number of other local beers, or tasty non-alcoholic beverages.

And my favourite part? If you don't feel like sitting at a table, you are welcome to bring a picnic rug and relax on the lawn.
