  • Thank you

    You came, wined, dined, ginned, cheesed, flowered and danced. We can’t thank those of you enough who joined us for this weekend’s Shiraz Festival – it was HUGE and FUN and TASTY – and you were all wonderful guests. Thank you for choosing to spend some of your weekend with us and we hope you loved every minute of your time (and wine) with us.


    High fives, cheers, fist pumps, and jumps for joy we are proud to announce the BAIE Wines 2017 VINTAGE Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Rose’ and Shiraz’ are now back in stock and can be purchased online or at any good local bottle store. The wines are fantastic – thanks to all for your patience and support while we crafted these wines into something we think you are going to love!!

    The four wines that are now available for your drinking pleasure are –


    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.

    2017 PINOT GRIS

    This small batch estate grown BAIE Wines bestseller packs rich, creamy honey and pear flavours, with a full ripe palate and firm acid balance. Smooth and delicious this Pinot Gris is sure to hold a special place in your heart and at your dinner table.

    2017 ROSE

    Australia is celebrating dry purpose made Rose’ and this savoury blush style of Rose’ explains just why. Bursting with flavours of strawberries and red fruit with a delicious dry finish, this is definitely a Rose’ lovers go-to wine.

    2016 SHIRAZ

    This Shiraz delivers all the goods of a cool climate, maritime red with delicious plum and red fruits that are perfectly balanced with spice and French oak. Cellar for the long haul, but oh so good right now.

    We’re so very proud to be launching the 2017 Vintage of BAIE Wines at the incomparable 360Q restaurant in Queenscliff with a five-course degustation dinner on July 22. Lovers of our wines were left clamoring for more this year as the 2016 range sold out in January – but now the 2017 vintage is ready it will be officially launched at Queenscliff’s iconic waterfront venue, 360Q, on July 22. Customers at 360Q have literally devoured the Baie Rose’, Pinot Gris, sauvignon Blanc and the 2015 shiraz, and 360Q business owner Barry Iddles is very proud to have joined forces with Baie Wines owners Nadine and Simon Kuc to host the launch with a five-course degustation menu.

  • Get your celebration on – 2016 new vintage now released!


    Aaaannnnd that’s a wrap on our annual Shiraz Festival pop up two weekends ago, and we couldn’t be happier. Firstly, the sun was shining, yes… shining and warm…. who knew?!. Which meant that we welcomed heaps of very happy festival goers inside the winery shed, outside at barrels and crates by the fire on a magical winters day. The festival saw many old and new faces, so a big THANKYOU to those of you who came along and joined us.


    It’s Wine Time

    Blow up the balloons, pull the party poppers it’s time to get your celebration on as we finally announced the release of the 2106 NEW VINTAGE Wines. The demand in 2015 kind of took us by surprise and saw us sell out of all wines by about April of this year. But it is with great pleasure that we introduce you to these guys again, because they are back, and judging by the reaction we have had at the Shiraz festival and the tastings we have done with some of Wine Store partners – people are super happy with all of the new releases. So to get you re acquainted, please allow us to introduce you to…


    2016 Sauvignon BlancSB-flatlay

    A refreshingly delicate wine, bursting with zest of honeydew and citrus characteristics, underlined by an impressive minerality. Gather your friends and get your taste buds ready for this lip smacking white.
