Our small batch vineyard was established in 2000 and we began producing under our own label in 2006. Grapes are our passion and our wines represent excellent drinkability and an uncompromising representation of our unique maritime cool climate patch that we love so much.

Family Owned

Baie Wines is a true family owned and operated winery – from picking the grapes to selling the wine – the Kuc family does it all, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our Team

Simon Kuc

Simon studied Agricultural Science at Melbourne Universtiy, after which he spent a number of years working in various government and corporate agricultural roles. His passion for family, farming and vineyards led him back to the Bellarine – where many of his childhood weekends were spent.

Simon now farms crops and cattle across the Bellarine, is the vitucuturalist at BAIE Park and runs the wine business with Nadine, whilst raising their young family. He is also the president of the Geeloong Wine Associaton and is passionate about promoting Geelong as a premium wine region. Needless to say he’s a happy (but busy) man!

Nadine Kuc

Nadine began her working life as a Speech Pathologist, however relocation from WA to Melbourne saw a career change into Pharmaceutical Sales and meeting the love of her life Simon.  Whilst taking maternity leave after having their first son, Nadine began heading out on the road (sometimes with pram and baby in tow) to spread the BAIE Wines story to local restaurants and wine stores. 10 years later she is still loving every minute of balancing farm and family life while working within the BAIE Wines business in marketting, wine sales and pop up cellar doors.

Anne Kuc

Anne worked alongside Peter in their Melbourne medical practice whilst raising their 3 children. When it came time to relocate to the rural life they both so love, her hard work meant that the true beauty of BAIE Park was born.  Anne has designed and worked on the stunning grounds at BAIE Park and spends much of her time now hosting brides and grooms to assist them in creating their perfect wedding day.

Peter Kuc

Peter has had a highly successful career as a GP in Melbourne for much of his life, but his connection to the country and farm life saw him purchase BAIE Park in Curlewis in 1980 where he would spend many weekends with Anne and their 3 children restoring the estate to it’s true glory.

When time for retirement from medicine came, Peters love of science and wine came to the forefront which saw he and son Simon plant 20 acres of vines in 2000,  and together they have ensured the excellence in viticulural practices that BAIE Wines is know for. Pete can usually be found amongst the vines, behind a camera lens, or hosting wedding’s with Anne to ensure that guests at BAIE Park enjoys every part of the exclusivity and beauty that they have strived to build.
