Wine, cheese and chocolate - the perfect trio

Cheese, chocolate & wine, in the beautiful Yarra Valley, what a line-up! The well known Rochford Wines in the Yarra Valley reopened after restrictions lifted, on June 1. Rochford Wines is blessed with lots of space, multiple buildings and plenty of room to ensure all government guidelines on social distancing are met.

Their restaurant is now open for set 'sitting' times. These ensure they maintain appropriate numbers of guests in their spaces at any given time. One of their sessions is a fondue experience paired with perfect wines. Fondue is always a great winter warmer.

Fondue sessions are held in the conservatory and involve hand-selected cheeses, matched perfectly with wines in a relaxed and secluded setting and of course, delicious, melt in the mouth fondue!

Ah, fondues Nadine. Brings back memories from the1970s with friends sitting around on bean bags, wearing our flairs and partaking in a fondue party. Your experience is a little more up market. Neil.
