Baileys of Glenrowan are amongst the earliest pioneers of Victorian viticulture, inaugurally vintaged in 1870, internationally renowned for their intensely flavoured and richly structured wines. A family managed operation to this day, Baileys can call on a quality of fruit reserved for Australia's most eminent and stately balels. An opulent single vineyard wine crafted from parcels of hand picked Shiraz, batches are treated to a traditional old world style of vinification, open ferments and passage through a hundred year old basket press. Following vinification, components are transferred to a selection of new and prior use French oak barrels for a year's maturation before assembling into the finished wine.

Baileys of Glenrowan Shiraz
Rutherglen
Available by the dozen
The Bailey's property at Glenrowan contains fifteen blocks of Shiraz, including some of the oldest vines in Victoria.

Baileys of Glenrowan Topaque
Glenrowan
Available in cartons of six
Steeped in history, the original Baileys store was situated next door to the Glenrowan Inn where widow Jones hosted Ned Kelly's siege. Following the gold rush, the Baileys turned to farming and settled on a property which they named Bundarra. Rural life was harsh and the Glenrowan countryside was stubborn. But the Baileys persevered, eventually sowing one of the most enduring vineyards in Australian history.

Baileys of Glenrowan manage some of Victoria's oldest plantings. After the devastation of phylloxera at the turn of the last century, vines were replanted to the rich, deep, red granite soils below the Warby Ranges. The favourable growing seasons at Glenrowan are characterised by long warm summers with very little rainfall, encouraging the fruit to develop intense flavours and high natural sugar levels. Following harvest at the peak of full physiological ripeness and a timely fermentation that's arrested by the addition of brandy spirit, parcels are treated to a spell of extended ageing in a mix of well seasoned large format oak. The final wine is assembled from a selection of barrels across several vintages.
 
Caramel, dense brown red in the glass. Nose exhibits varietal aromas of orange blossom, rose petals and dried fruit. The palate is generous and lush, full of complex fruit flavours resolving on a carefully balanced sweetness.
Baileys Rutherglen Durif
Rutherglen
Available by the dozen
Rutherglen is the world's most arcane and prestigious appellation of Durif. The vines here carry great distinction due to perpetual quarantine, after a devastating nineteenth century outbreak of phyloxera. Baileys have assembled parcels from their Glenrowan property around a weighty backbone of Rutherglen fruit, a mouth filling accord of ripe flavours and assertive tannin grip, to satiate the most demanding Durif devotee. Fifteen months in seasoned American oak puncheons, infuse anise and cocoa malt into a beguilingly captivating wine of mulberry and liquorice opulence.

The Baileys wine-making story began in the 1860’s, when Richard Bailey and his young family arrived in Australia

The Baileys set up a store in Glenrowan to supply miners on nearby goldfields. This store was located alongside the famous Anne Jones Inn where the Kelly gang siege was to take place. As the gold fields dried up and the miners moved on, the Bailey family turned to farming instead, settling their property near Glenrowan. Back then, rural life was tough and lonely, and the Glenrowan countryside was barren and unforgiving. But the Baileys family persevered on their property named “Bundarra”: eventually planting one of the district’s first vineyards.

Baileys Glenrowan

In 1870, Richard and his son Varley proudly produced their first vintage. It was gold of a very different hue, but gold nevertheless, and the birth of an Australian legend! The Bailey property remained a winemaking success from then on: with the winemaking mantle passed on from father to son through the generations. During that time, the region was terrorised by the infamous bushranger Ned Kelly, who was finally captured in 1880 at Glenrowan - just a short gallop from Baileys.

Far more terrifying than Ned though, was the outbreak in 1890’s of Phylloxera. Whilst only tiny, the parasitic pest Phylloxera devastated Victoria’s early wine industry. Many vineyards were ordered to destroy their vines, and many heartbroken winemakers simply walked off their ravaged land, never to return. But once the Phylloxera scourge had passed, the Baileys family replanted in 1904 on Phylloxera resistant root-stock -- and soon the family’s famous red wine flowed again.

The original 1904 Block, planted with Shiraz, continues to produce outstanding wines to this day

The Baileys of Glenrowan Shiraz, full of flavour, quickly built a reputation and a loyal following. Further plantings of Shiraz, Muscat and Tokay took place in the 1920's. Recent improvements to the Baileys of Glenrowan site have ensured the success of the winery for generations to come. Plantings throughout the 1950’s to the 1990’s have seen the vineyards increase to 143 hectares, with an annual crush of 1600 -1800 tonnes.

The historic Glenrowan wine region is renowned for its luscious fortified wines and rich red wine styles, a product of the area's deep, red granite soils. The region is bordered by the Ovens River to the north and the Hume Freeway to the south. Most cellar doors and vineyards in the region are located close to the historic township of Glenrowan, on land that lies between the Warby Ranges and Lake Mokoan. The region's oldest vineyard is Baileys of Glenrowan. Tradition is important at Baileys, with many heritage buildings and historic artefacts on display - providing a real glimpse into Australia's colourful rural past. Apart from its intensely flavoured wines, the Glenrowan area also produces a range of stone fruit - such as juicy nectarines, peaches and cherries - plus deliciously sweet strawberries.

New, state-of-the art winemaking equipment was built at Baileys in 1998. At the same time, the 100 year-old basket press was restored to ensure that the tradition lives on in all of Bailey's wines. The restoration and upgrade of the winery cellar door in 2000 completed the recent improvements and enabled the sharing of heritage and the full Baileys experience with the winery's visitors.
