READ ABOUT BlackJack Wines Winery...

BlackJack Vineyards took its name from an American sailor who, in the 1850s, lured by the possibility of gold, abandoned ship and found himself at the Castlemaine goldfields of Central Victoria.

In 1987, in search of a different kind of gold, the Pollock and McKenzie families converted an old apple and pear orchard in Bendigo’s Harcourt Valley, into BlackJack Vineyards. Ken Pollock and Ian McKenzie planted their first vines of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot and in 1988 and released their first vintage in 1994.

Since that time BlackJack vineyard has grown in reputation with the wines regarded by Jeremy Oliver as ‘honest, juicy and flavoursome red wines’.

BlackJack Wines Philosophy

The BlackJack vision is to produce premium, full-bodied red wines that reflect both the vineyard and vintage variations without tampering too much with what nature provides.

BlackJack Wines Region

The Blackhack vineyards are planted on old, degraded soils that are for the most part low in fertility with some traces of granite. Cool nights and clear warm days encourage relatively slow ripening with all hand harvesting and pruning adding to quality of the final wines.

BlackJack Wines Wine Range

BlackJack wines produces three estate-grown reds: BlackJack Shiraz, BlackJack Block 6 Shiraz and BlackJack Cabernet Merlot. A second label, Chortle’s Edge is produced from shiraz grapes sourced from other Bendigo vineyards.
