Located just 45 minutes from the CBD, you are invited to enjoy leisurely Autumn weekends in the beautiful estate, which is surrounded by gorgeous wooded hills that stretch as far as the eye can see toward the Kinglake Ranges.
As you enter the cellar door, owners John and Chanmali will warmly welcome you. John is the head winemaker, who uses age-old wine making techniques to craft his unique range of wines, from the handmade estate grown sparkling Pinot Chardonnay, to some very big hearty reds, including the Barrel Reserve Shiraz (aged for 28 months in French Barriques).
After sampling some of John's finest selections, settle in for an authentic Italian pizza, made with the finest local ingredients and some specialty produce imported direct from Italy. The traditional and rustic pizza recipe itself comes from John's parent's village in Italy!
What could be better than enjoying a delightful slice of freshly baked pizza, complemented with your favourite glass of wine on the large deck!
Nillumbik Estate Winery is accessed via Clintons Rd (which is across the road from the Sugar Loaf, Reservoir as you head into Yarra Glen).
This is an experience you won't forget! Be sure to book because it is very popular.
