Surrounding by imposing red gums, this winery is home to one of the friendliest characters in the region in winemaker Sue Bell. And just behind the winery is a lovingly restored shearing shed with a back paddock that’s been made open to campers and glampers.
Bell hosts tastings by appointment during the day, personal tours of the wineries, and of course spends her time making more of Bellwether’s award-winning wines. In addition, she’s also hosting guests looking to stay the night. Spacious bell tents come with cast-iron beds and avian alarm clocks, and the shower block includes a claw-foot bathtub.
There are six tents to choose from, each spaced at least a hundred metres apart for privacy. Or you can get to know your neighbours over at the central communal campfire, glass of wine in hand. Your stay also includes farm-fresh eggs and house-baked sourdough.
