  • NEW VINTAGE GIVEAWAY

    We are bowled over with the love for our new vintage BAIE Wines.

    So to say thanks we are giving away a twin pack of each of our Rosé, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz each week for the next month!

    SOMETHING BIG IS GOING ON

    We are just a tad excited to show you a glimpse of some of the hard work going on behind the scenes. For the first time since we all planted the BAIE Vineyard almost 20 years ago we are planting again!

    Topping up some new vines of much loved BAIE faves such as Pinot Gris and adding some new varietals we plan to have a lot of fun with in the years to come.

    Here’s Simon in action – putting in posts… all 4,000 of them… a labour of love!


    SKYLINE EDUCATION FOUNDATION

    Our work continues to provide a bursary for 2020 and 2021 of $11,500 to the the Skyline Foundation (a non-for-profit organisation), to support an academically gifted and talented, yet socially or financially disadvantaged student in the Geelong region to complete their VCE.

    We are donating $5 to Skyline with every online order we receive…
    so get shopping for your BAIE Wines here to support this amazing cause!

  • Two Words: Vintage & Afterpay

    VINTAGE

    2019 Vintage is here and we are happy campers so far!! It has been a long hot summer but with Pete and Simon’s careful canopy, water and soil management we are half way through vintage and those bunches are looking just about perfect.  Check out a video of our Pinot Gris just prior to harvest and how deliciously ripe they look, and then fast forward to how good they are going to taste when we release our 2019 Pinot Gris later this year. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

    AFTERPAY

    Sick of not having a great bottle of wine ready for when a friend pops by, for a beautiful meal you are having?  We’ve got you …. we are super excited to announce the arrival of Afterpay online, beautiful BAIE Wines in your fridge or wine shelf whenever you need – just got even easier!!

    SHOP BAIE WITH AFTERPAY HERE

    WE DON’T WANT YOU TO MISS OUT

    We don’t want you to miss out, and we are worried that you are. Do you know we set up BAIE INSIDER as a free VIP Rewards club in 2018 as a way of saying thanks to anyone who supports our small batch little winery? We try to provide monthly perks; think spa visits, restaurant vouchers, VIP treatment, free delivery, and reward dollars into your account to say thanks, we’d hate for you to be missing all the fun.

  • Feel Good Feb

    Feb’s here and full of promise.
    We here at BAIE are focusing on Feel Good Feb.

    WINE

    We believe wine sure is at the centre of much happiness – whether we relax after a long day, gather for a celebration, or savour it with a beautiful meal. Beyond the mental joy, drinking wine in moderation can also be good for your physical health. New studies support that a glass of wine a day helps to decrease mortality, lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks… so enjoy that glass of wine in moderation, and remember life’s too short to drink bad wine!

    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

    Having now launched the new 2018 BAIE Vintage Wines, we are so excited at how many people are OVER THE TOP LOVING the new vintage BAIE Sauvignon Blanc. A refreshingly textured wine, with delicious flavours of peaches and citrus, underlined by a rich mineral backbone. 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.
