Just an hour’s drive outside of Melbourne you will find the Yarra Valley, a countryside paradise abundant in rolling hills and lush green vines. Discover internationally renowned winery TarraWarra Estate and its 65-seat restaurant, nestled within the 400-hectare property amongst peppercorn trees, where Head Chef Mark Ebbels is championing seasonal and local produce inspired by its quarter-acre on-site garden.
Post-lunch wine tasting awaits at the property’s unique cellar door. Designed by Kerstin Thompson Architects and framed by stone from Castlemaine quarry, it’s the vineyard equivalent of Alice in Wonderland’s rabbit hole.
