3. Pimpernel Vinyards

Enjoy a generous wine tasting session inspired by the great wines and traditions of Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, Pimpernel Vineyards aim to offer an expression of their unique terroir. Through the combination of dry land cultivation techniques and minimal intervention winemaking, Pimpernel Vineyards produces intensely flavoured wines that express their site and climate.  

4. Coldstream Dairy

  • Italian-style handmade cheeses
  • Fresh feta
  • Yoghurt

Enjoy a complimentary cheese and condiment tasting, pure indulgence!

5. Nillumbik Estate

Our final stop of the day is well worth the wait and one of our favourite spots in the Yarra Valley, good food, amazing wine and great people.  The Tregambe family have been making wine for generations in Italy and it is their age-old wine making techniques that head winemaker John Tregambe employs at Nillumbik Estate. Throughout the year, John readily delights visitors with barrel tastings of new vintages or a tour of the pristine vineyard. The large deck at the cellar door offers breathtaking views of the Kinglake Ranges; ready to be soaked up with a glass of fine wine.
