The Perfect Summer Venue for All

For something new to do on the Island this summer, head over to the newly renovated Phillip Island Winery. Three couples have come together to revive the much-loved property and must have spread magic dust on the ground because this place is quickly growing into the place-to-be this summer.

Start with a wander through “The Yards” where on-site floral designer Bec Newman has created a haven of quality giftware, natural beauty and skin products, nature-based candles and of course, the highest quality florals for any and every occasion.

Then make your way to the Cellar Door for a wine tasting, experiencing some of the best wines the region has to offer. Once you have chosen your favourite, enjoy a glass and indulge in a delectable charcuterie board to share or any of the tempting daily specials. Quality ingredients are sourced locally wherever possible and Gippsland and the Bass Coast have some exceptional produce to offer.

On live music event days, you may wish to soak up the sounds and the sun and grab a picnic rug from the basket. Sit on the lawn or find a bench seat in the Atrium. Otherwise enjoy the welcoming rustic charm of the restaurant or veranda with its recycled timber and tasteful mix of modern and country style.

Bring your four-legged friend along; there’s even a menu for dogs!

This is all set on fourteen acres of country charm with expansive lawns, an olive grove, 3 acres of vines (to be expanded), as well as stunning views of the Southern Ocean. Phillip Island Winery is open 5 days a week, excluding Tuesday and Wednesday from 11.30-5.30 and will be open 7 days a week from the 27th December for plenty of summer fun.
