Founded in 1988, this winery is an Australian icon. The name, Bindi, comes from the traditional dot, signifying female energy worn by women on their foreheads in India, owner Bill Dhillon's native country. Stuart Anderson was the winemaker initially until son, Michael Dhillon took over in 1998. 1,200 cases are produced from 18 acres of estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Three Pinot Noirs are produced: Composition (young vines), Original Vineyard, and Block 8. The wines are exported to the United States.
