Further News from Balgownie Estate

Thank you to everyone for their generous messages of support following the fire at our Yarra Valley resort which ravaged the restaurant and cellar door. We are thankful that there were no guests in the restaurant at the time and that all the staff were able to be evacuated safely.

We would also like to extend out thanks for the CFA members and other emergency services for their prompt response and getting the fire under control – in fact there was no damage to our accommodation facilities, event rooms or Natskin Day Spa.

Regrettably both the restaurant and the cellar door have been extensively damaged and will remain closed while we assess their damage. We are currently working on establishing new pop-up facilities to allow us to continue to offer these services. Out undamaged accommodation facilities are still open and still available.

As always, you are still able to purchase wine through our online store, where our loyal Platinum Club customers will receive their usual discount.

Cellar Door Reopening

As of Friday June 5th, our Cellar Doors will re-open for tastings. We are thrilled to be able to welcome our visitors back to the Yarra Valley tasting room which will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 5pm.

We have made some changes to the way we operate to ensure we are meeting government requirements while keeping staff and visitors as safe as possible.

There will be changes in the way the tastings are conducted:
Cellar Door tastings will carried out seated rather than at the tasting counter.
There will be a limit on the amount of people permitted in Cellar Door at one time.
Wine tastings will be up to 30 minutes. 

If you are going to be visiting Balgownie Estate in the coming weeks, we would love to see you, and ask that you simply get in touch and book a time for your tasting. We look forward to seeing you in Cellar Door soon for a taste and a chat.
