Our Philosophy

A firm hand & minimal intervention

At Bellingham we believe that grapes should be allowed to speak for themselves, which is why we follow a minimal intervention approach, respecting the fruit all the way through wine preparation. To this end we combine time-honoured methods with calculated technological expertise to arrive at premium wines that serve as a showcase for our vibrant terroir.

Subtle guidance & thorough character development

In order to preserve the natural fruit characteristics of each varietal we lavish time and attention on each wine throughout the production process. We place a high premium on mouth-feel and believe in subtle oak maturation as a vehicle to enhance the structure and complexity of our wines. By following this method we are able to produce a range of spirited and dynamic red and white wines that hold broad appeal both locally and abroad.

Experimentation & superior craft

Our Homestead, Innovation and Tree ranges have been developed over time to appeal to particular groups of wine enthusiasts, while our Bernard Series allows our winemaking team to stretch their creative muscles. Crafted within our special ‘cellar-in-a-cellar’, this range provides these talented artists with the opportunity to show their innate flair when it comes to crafting boutique vintages.
