Bannockburn

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
"Outstanding" (Serre Pinot Noir) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV

"The late Stuart Hooper had a deep love for the wines of Burgundy, and was able to drink the best. When he established Bannockburn, it was inevitable that pinot noir and chardonnay would form the major part of the plantings, with lesser amounts of riesling, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot. Bannockburn is still owned by members of the Hooper family, who continue to respect Stuart's strong belief in making wines that reflect the flavours of the vineyard."James Halliday

"Bannockburn Vineyards was established by Stuart Hooper in 1974 with the planting of a 3 hectare block of Shiraz vines near the township of Bannockburn, 25 kilometres north of Geelong. Since this Humble beginning, Bannockburn Vineyards has grown in size and notoriety to become one of the most highly regarded small winemaking estates in Australia. It was Stuart Hooper's passion to share the enjoyment of a bottle of red with friends and family, and his dream of producing wine from his own vineyard, that lead to the establishment of Bannockburn Vineyards, while his uncompromising commitment to always produce the best wine possible, regardless of cost, has placed Bannockburn Vineyards at the forefront of re-establishing Geelong as an exceptional cool climate wine producing area." - Bannockburn
