Nintingbool Vineyard

Nintingbool is a family-owned and operated winery and vineyard located at Smythes Creek, just west of Ballarat.  Smythes Creek was named after Captain John James Barlow Smythe, who had lease of the Nintingbool run in 1846. Originally known as ‘Nentingbull’, the name is derived from the indigenous word ‘Nunkunbool’ which means ‘morning star’.

Nintingbool benefits from a cool climate with a long ripening period, to produce premium quality grapes and fine complex wines.

Our vines are all hand pruned and picked - we ensure that our fruit is always handled with great care to maintain premium quality. Our wines are fermented in small vats to allow for a combination of whole bunches; wild yeast and a variety of carefully selected yeasts. Wines are matured in French oak barrels and coaxed through the winter with electric blankets to maintain a constant temperature in the very cool Ballarat climate.
