About Us



Otway Estate is a 28 acre property in the beautiful Otway Ranges - 12.5 kilometres south of Colac and 160 kilometres (or 2 hours) from Melbourne.

We first began as a Winery in 1997. With 15 acres of vines planted in the early 80's, the vines showcase Chardonnay, Semillion, Sauvignon and Pinot grapes throughout the property. Making our boutique wines onsite, we offer wines ranging from the easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc to a delicious Sparkling, a warming Pinot Noir and many in between.

Wishing to add to the Estates charm we built our three onsite spa cottages in 2000 and in 2006 developed our function centre.

Whilst we continue to embrace our love for wine, in 2007 the decision was made to build a craft brewery on site and Prickly Moses was born. With a new passion for handcrafted quality beers and cider, we now offer over 20 varieties of Beer and Cider – For more information on Prickly Moses, visit our Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer website for more of the Prickly Moses story or to order our products online.

Situated in the Otway Ranges, our Estate is the perfect place to hold your special function, get away from the strains of everyday life or base yourself to head off bushwalking, hiking, mountain bike riding, trail bike riding or 4 wheel driving. A photographers dream, the Estate provides many photo opportunities with flora and fauna abounding. Head out on an adventure and finish your fun with one of our handcrafted beverages whilst relaxing on our sunny deck or in front of the warmth of our fireplace.

We are ideally located as a base where you can enjoy the peace and slower pace of life, whilst venturing out to visit many local attractions in the area. Enjoy a trip along the Great Ocean Road, head over to Apollo Bay, or visit the local Waterfalls, most places are within a 10 to 60 minute drive radius. Stay at Otway Estate and the world is your oyster.
