Cellar Door

Our Cellar Door is perched above the Mitchel River Valley and provides the perfect setting to enjoy our wines.  The views from the deck take in the Myrtle Point Vineyard, the limestone escarpment and the sweeping views of the valley below.

We have collaborated with some of our favourite local foodies for the Taste of East Gippsland Platter. This is a set platter with a portions from Sardine Eatery + Bar, Northern Ground, The Long Paddock, Paynesville Pantry & Seasalt Sourdough and can be enjoyed all day at the cellar door. We also stock a range of local beers from Sailors Grave & Bullant Breweries.

We are so glad to able to open the doors at the tasting room and deck again. In light of the COVID restrictions and reduced capacity we have made a few changes. We have tried come up with options that will allow the greatest number of people have a chance to enjoy the cellar door experience. Hopefully there will be some relaxing of the restrictions before too long, but for the moment cellar door bookings will be limited to the following:

– All bookings maximum of 1 hour.
– Maximum group size 4 per group.

As we start school holidays and the long weekend we anticipate high demand at the cellar door. Bookings highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

We ask for your patience with these changes and the additional regulations our staff need to adhere to so we can reopen in a COVID safe way.

DECK (WEATHER PERMITTING)

Bookings essential. 

Our deck offer sweeping views across to the vineyard’s limestone escarpment and down the Mitchell River Valley. Sittings are available for up to 1 hour. Umbrellas offer some cover, but the Gippsland weather can be unpredictable, so warm jackets can come in handy. Please be aware if the weather is unsuitable alternative indoor seating may not be available. Leashed pets are welcome!

TASTING ROOM (INDOORS)

Bookings essential.

Located inside our cellar door, the tasting room is an intimate space designated for wine tastings. Our wine tasting is an immersive and interactive experience tailored to your groups wine tastes. Tastings take approximately 45mins and includes up to 6 wines with a maximum group size of 8 people. Our $15 tasting fee is for the costs associated with the tasting and is not redeemable on purchases. Packages for larger bookings may be available upon request.

While booking is highly recommended, drop-ins may be accommodated subject to availability.

SAFE & ENJOYABLE VISITS

We want to provide a relaxed, enjoyable & safe experience for all our visitors, as such we have important COVID restrictions in place.

We welcome families to enjoy drinks on the deck, however we focus on showcasing our wines and local food collaborations so food is limited to the Taste of East Gippsland Platter. Unfortunately we can’t allow food & drinks from outside areas to be brought in.  Please remember children are counted in our patron capacity and must be supervised at all times, there are many potential hazards around a working winery.
