FAQs

The cellar door is open Thursday to Monday 11am to 5pm.  

Build-your-own cheese plate options will be available ‘from the deli’ every day. Workers BBQ will be offering a full menu every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm, for casual yet quality food. 

We are taking bookings for tastings and limited Table bookings. We have ample seating for walk ins.

We have plenty of space for walk ins. A booking does help us plan for staffing and ensures you will get the best seats in the house, so it is encouraged. However there is enough tables and outdoor space for walk ins.

Tastings for up to 4 people are available at the communal bar. 

We have our entire portfolio on for tastings at both our Austin’s and 6Ft6 ranges (up to 13 wines!).

The outdoor space will be very child-friendly with vast open lawns. It’s the ideal spot to grab a picnic rug and let the kids run around while you enjoy some food and wine in the sun. Inside seated bookings will also be available, however the tasting bar isn’t suitable for children.

We have ensured that our space was designed with all people in mind.Both inside and outside spaces will be wheelchair accessible with ample space to move around.

Dogs will be allowed on a lead, outside as long as they are supervised. Please call ahead to ensure there is outside space and not too busy to bring your beloved pet. Of course, guide and assistance dogs are welcome both inside and out.

We are located in Sutherlands Creek, a beautiful but slightly hidden pocket of the world. We are an hour drive from Melbourne, twenty minutes from Geelong and an hour from Ballarat.

This project was possible through the generous support of our Cellar Door Founding Members. Also thanks to the State Government of Victoria through the Regional Development Fund.
