Dependent on no delays outside of our control, we expect the cellar to be open in January 2022. Our email subscribers will be given first access to any bookings.

Yes, we will be offering food with our ‘build-your-own’ cheese plate options every day. Sticks and Bones BBQ will be offering a full menu every Saturday and Sunday, for casual yet quality food. 

We will be open from Thursday to Monday from 11am to 5pm with occasional sunset sessions. 

We will have a few different options available depending on the day and the number of bookings. Primarily it will be booked, seated tastings with a choice of wine flights at the bar/dining space or a seat at one of our guided masterclasses. There will also be an opportunity for a casual glass of wine inside if you prefer to sip and enjoy the view. Expect outside picnics on the grass, the perfect opportunity to share a bottle on a beautiful day.

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 no one under the age of 18 is able to join the masterclass table.

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.
