Wineries / Dining / Food
|Barrique Wine Store
This is where you need to go to select a bottle of wine to enjoy before heading out for the evening. The wine selection is excellent and I love the fact that they include smaller boutique winemakers from the Yarra Valley.
If bubbly is your thing, then Chandon is well worth a visit. Historic Homestead on fabulous grounds.
You shouldn’t miss this really good cellar door on the grounds of the former country home of Dame Nellie Melba. The restaurant is great too.
|De Bortoli Wines
The biggest winery in the Valley and famous for high quality, well priced wines. One of my favorite winery restaurants.
Hanrahan Vineyard is our next door neighbor and good friends. The vineyard and cellar door are a great place to visit and you always get a warm welcome. Tends to have you stay a while, for both the great wines and the great views. Check-out their “Reverse BYO” for a great lunch, or grab a gorgeous vineyard in a hidden part of the Yarra Valley.
Great for fine dining, excellent wine list including many from the Yarra Valley.
Really good food and great bar in a contemporary eclectic setting.
Really large open space with wine tasting and lot’s of tapas style plates, along with excellent pizza
|K&B Kitchen & Butcher
This should be your first stop when shopping for unique gourmet items, meat, cheese, local artisan bread and a lot more.
Always great music playing in this fantastic space. Settle-in for a brew, or add some great food too.
Having been winery of the year and boasting an all new cellar door, restaurant and function centre, there’s every reason to pay a visit. Oakridge also enjoys high scores from James Halliday on many of their wines.
The closest place for breakfast (served 7 days) if you don’t want to make your own. This is also the home of “A Day On The Green” and other Rochford sponsored concerts during summer. Beat the exit crowds and walk from our property.
|Stones of the Yarra Valley
Not just a fantastic wedding destination but two fabulous restaurant choices. The “Barn” restaurant for lunch and the “Stables” for dinner. Check the website for available dates and for live music events, which are always a big hit.
Winery. Great architectural construction and landscaping. Fine dining restaurant. Contemporary Art Museum.
One of the best views in the Valley, apart from ours. Very nice restaurant in contemporary space.
