Welcome to Mount Beckworth Wines

Mount Beckworth Wines is situated on a small plateau on the east side of the mount, 25km north of Ballarat and only 6km out from the gold townnship of Clunes.
The property is owned and operated by Paul and Jane Lesock.
The vineyard was established in 1984, 10 acres in size, and planted with the premium grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
We are classed as a "boutique winery" with all wines being handcrafted and made by traditional winemaking methods to achieve complexity and balance.
We have been fortunate to date with our wines winning over 73 Awards in way of Gold, Silver or Bronze medals at various Wine Shows and also the first Ballarat Winery to be awarded a Trophy at the Ballarat Wine Show for best White Table Wine for the region.
We feel this as an endorsement of the quality of wines produced from this area.
