The Bress Experience

Bress is a welcoming vineyard and sustainable mixed farm situated just 90 minutes from Melbourne. We craft fine wines, ciders & produce using biodynamic practices from a variety of regions in Victoria. We welcome visitors to our cellar door and the Bress Kitchen at our property in happening, happy Harcourt!

Bress is open for tastings from  11am until 5pm every Friday to Sunday & selected Public Holidays

Our seasonal weekend lunches alternate between Osteria-style casual dining, our traditional 3 course lunch and special events

Our Products

Wine | Cider | Produce
Bress wines are produced from grapes that have been grown using biodynamic farming practices.  This fruit is then handcrafted to reflect the varietal characters and the sense of place that each parcel of fruit expresses.

Our wine philosophy is simple..

  • In short, our winemaking is very simple and it all starts in the vineyard. Good quality fruit, picked at flavour ripeness, is fermented and gently cared for, with minimal intervention , through its journey from vineyard/orchard to bottle.

    A.P. Marks, Winemaker
We are open from 11.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays and other times by chance.  So see you soon!
