    FROM ….  

    We love bringing to you a story or two from some of our biggest BAIE fans, and we are so excited to let you know what they’ve got to say. We asked Liv from SNIF Perfumery in East Geelong why she loves our Pinot Gris and this is what she told us….

    “The rich crisp flavour is such a stand out for a Pinot Gris. The price is exceptional and over delivers for an estate frown local drop. I love to match it with a light fresh creamy pasta.”

    SHOP PINOT GRIS


    YOU CAN NOW BUY OUR WINE IN 4 ‘S – MIXED ANYWAY YOU LIKE IT

    In the past you could order BAIE Wines online in 6’s or 12’s, but we get that you may need 4 bottles to tide you over for a weekend away, as a rocking gift or as an entertainer’s dream. So if you need a Sauvignon Blanc for your Friday night, two Pinot Gris as a gift for your Mum, and a Rosé because… Sunday… we’ve got you.

    SHOP BAIE WINE

    Thanks as always for being part of what we do, we love providing beautiful wines and experiences to people who share in our small batch family run passion,

    Cheers Nadine and Simon Kuc

  • Spring and Sauvignon Blanc

    PRETTY PROUD OF OUR GEELONG WINE COMMUNITY

    Last week we attended the Victorian Agribusiness Summit at the stunning Clyde Park Vineyard and Bistro. We had the opportunity to put together an auction item to raise money for the Victorian Farmers Federation. Talk about the wine community coming together… what amazing people we get to work with! Knowing that a group experience is an awesome prize we rang a few of our industry friends shown including Steven Paul from Oakdene Vineyards, Jon Helmer from Geelong Cellar Door, and Jan and Russell McGlashan from McGlashans Wallington Estate, and together we created an amazing wine tour for 10 people in a Mini Bus (driven by Nadine), that received crazy generous bidding to raise much needed funds for our farmers. Thank you to these awesome humans who didn’t hesitate for a second to say….’I’ll help.’


    SPRING AND SAUVIGNON BLANC

A perfect representation of the sophistication that can be found in cool climate savoury Sauvignon Blanc. You can purchase in 6 or 12 packs and have it delivered to your door – jump online here and get yours on it’s way to your home and your glass.

  • We love ‘love’

    Aaaahhhh – Valentines Day… love it or hate it… you gotta love ‘love’ – and we here at BAIE see a lot of it. Loved up Brides and Grooms, their beautiful families, all coming together to celebrate that day in your life where you really can’t believe you could love another person more. We’ve put together a little flick of some beautiful BAIE moments that make us all love ‘love’ just a little bit more.


    WHAT’S HAPPENING AT BAIE

    Vintage 2018

    We are all working pretty flat out at the moment in the lead up to what is shaping up to be a wonderful start to the 2018 vintage. Sim has been hard at it over the last few weeks getting the nets on the vineyard (not his favourite job it has to be said) to protect those almost ripe bunches from the birdlife, and preparing to get our hands on those grapes for our winemakers to begin the process of crafting some exciting new wines for you all. The overview of the crop at the minute is that the fruit is ripening well, the health of the vines is excellent and the overall balance in the vineyard is exactly where we want it to be. Can’t wait!


    APCO Wine Walk

    A big thank you to all who attended the Geelong Heritage APCO Wine Walk – a fantastic crowd who raved about our BAIE Sauvignon Blanc and newcomer BAIE Saignée – to get your hands on some of this chilled, juicy, cherry flavoured Rosado style you can jump online here.

    Thank you also to our beautiful hosts at the Geelong Hotel – great staff, great hospitality and a fabulous Geelong Venue – check them out here www.geelonghotel.com.


    Cheers to Love and the Promise of things to come, Nadine and Simon X

  • Welcome to the endless possibilities of 2018

    Welcome to the endless possibilities of 2018, we are working overtime in the vineyard to look after those big beautiful bunches that are going to make some pretty spectacular wine this year and we are working hard on finding some pretty innovative ways to thank you for being part of what we do… can’t wait for this year!!

    This quote from Nanea Hoffman (of IG sweatpantsandcoffee fame) has just about summed it up – what will you keep, treasure, ditch and embrace this year?

    NOTE TO SELF:

    Keep the lessons.
    Treasure the love and laughs.
    Ditch the stuff that doesn’t serve you.
    Embrace the adventures yet to come. 


    SUMMER ENTERTAINING

    We don’t know about you… but summer days leaves us feeling a little more adventurous about what we are serving up on the deck or at the beach for the perfect evening with friends. Check out this beautiful recipe that we are literally addicted to this summer… and to complete, serve with a chilled glass of BAIE Pinot Gris (6 or 12packs available here) for dining perfection. Enjoy.

    SWEET N SPICY SRIRACHA GLAZED SALMON

    INGREDIENTS

      • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
      • 2 tablespoons honey
      • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
      • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (or to taste)
      • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
      • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
      • 1 salmon fillet, cut into  200g pieces
      • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
      • 2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions, for garnish

    PREPARATION

      1. In a large zip-top plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic. Add the salmon, toss to coat evenly, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours, turning the fish once.
      2. Remove the salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil. Rotate the pan to coat the bottom evenly and add the salmon. Cook until one side of the fish is browned, about 2 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook until the other side browns, 2 more minutes. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the reserved marinade. Cover and cook until the fish is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.
      3. Place a piece of salmon on each of 4 serving plates and sprinkle with the scallions.
