Did you know that the Shoalhaven region is now home to over 15 of Australia’s newest wineries? The region is the perfect climate for wine growing and now you can explore our local gems either on your own or through local tour operators (Wine Knot Tours or Winescape Tours) who are happy to take you for a guided tour and, even better, do the driving for you.
Meet the growers and sample some of the region’s best local varietals including Chardonnay, Verdelho, Sauvignon Blanc and newer varietals such as Arneis, Viognier, and Tempranillo.
Close by BIG4 Racecourse Beach Tourist Park is Bawley Vale Estate Winery - an eight minute drive away or a gentle 23 minute cycle! Its stylish tasting room opens October to March to welcome you in to try their fabulous selection of wines.
A bit further afield is Cupitt's Estate, a family run boutique winery, cellar door, restaurant, microbrewery and fromagerie in a beautiful countryside setting between Ulladulla and Milton. The estate has gorgeous views across the vineyard, to Burrill Lake and Pigeon House Mountain.
