From our family to yours
Banks Road Vineyard is a family-run, small production winery based in the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria. William and Avanelle Derham established the vineyard in 2002, planting first 5 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay then expanding to Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz.
Will’s winemaking philosophy of minimalist intervention from the low yielding vineyard encourages high natural acidity and sugar levels, resulting in well-structured, elegant wines made with passion. All Banks Road wines are made on site, so from grape to bottle to tasting counter the estate wines travel only 400 metres!
Enjoy all the current release Banks Road vintages in the relaxed setting of the Banks Road Cellar Door & Cafe. Banks Road wines are also available in local restaurants and selected restaurants throughout Melbourne and the rest of Australia.

The Banks Road Cellar Door & Cafe is a relaxed space offering wine tastings and local, seasonal dishes which complement our wines. We offer tastings of the current Banks Road range, and also have a range of museum stock for you to peruse. Staff at the Cellar Door are friendly and are happy to help with all your needs. Children have ample opportunity to run around outside and we are very dog friendly – often Dave and Bear, our golden retrievers, are at the cellar door receiving guests!
We are also able to arrange tastings with groups via appointment. To make an appointment, please call 0455 594 391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Banks Road Cellar Door & Cafe is at 600 Banks Road, Marcus Hill, Victoria. The entrance to the vineyard is just off the Bellarine Highway, 200 metres north on Banks Road.
