About Us

Otway Estate, set at the beautiful Otway Estate provides guests and visitors a true taste of the Otways from a selection of the wonderful wine, beers and ciders all produced on site. The Prickly Moses Beers and Forbidden Fruit ciders are produced by Otway Brewing - the on-site brewery and have flavours and tastes to suit the seasons.

With a landscape of natural beauty, an abundance of wildlife and fresh local produce Otway Estate is waiting to tempt any visitor. Guests and visitors can relax on the decking area, celebrate in our function room or cuddle up in front of the fire. No mater what the reason you can enjoy a taste of the Otways at Otway Estate.

Otway Estate enjoys an idyllic setting with 16 acres of vines hidden among 28 acres of bush adjoining the Otway State Forest, just a stones throw from the Great Ocean Road and Victoria’s rugged South West Coast.

Though the vineyard was first established in 1981 more vines were planted in 1995 with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet all grown on the property.

In 2006 the latest development emerged, Otway Estate now boasts a winery, brewery, function facility and expanded cellar door.

 Winemaker Ian Deacon is producing premium wines from the Estate including a range of sparkling wines available exclusively at Cellar Door. With a strong reputation in the wine industry and vast experience in Australia and France, Ian puts his stamp on our Otway Estate wines.

Head Brewer, Luke Scott is well regarded in the brewing industry starting his career at CUB before travelling overseas then returning to work as head brewer at Potters Brewery in the Hunter Valley then moving to Otway Estate is 2008. The medal winning Prickly Moses beers are testament to his success.

Please get behind our Spotted Ale, launched in February 2013 at The Age Harvest Festival ... a beer to save a species. We have partnered with the Cape Otway Conservation Ecology Centre to raise much needed funds to help one of Australia's endangered species, the Tiger Quoll. Tiger Quolls are the largest remaining marsupials on the Australian mainland but their numbers are in serious decline. Our partnership with the Cape Otway Conservation and Ecology Centre will see all profits from this beer go directly to Tiger Quoll research and rehabilitation. Please support us by supporting the Tiger Quolls.

Otway Estate will always remain a boutique label produced by using only estate-grown grapes and traditional methods for our wines and using only the finest products sourced world wide and pure Otway rainwater for the “Prickly Moses” handcrafted beers, ales and stouts. Our organic cider has a yearly release  which is quickly snapped up - made from locally grown Gellibrand apples.
