On the second Saturday and Sunday of the months September through to June this select group of Beechworth wineries throw open their cellars (sheds, barrel halls, gardens and vineyards) for you to visit between 11:00am and 4:00pm.
There are cosy fires in winter and exceptional views in summer.
Haldon Estate, Baarmutha, Indigo Vineyard and Weathercraft have picnic facilities where you can enjoy the grounds. Serengale Vineyard’s cellar door is set within their winery and Bowman’s Run and Star Lane lie in the sleepy hamlet of Wooragee.
Amulet has lunches from noon to 3:30pm whilst Indigo Vineyard does cheese and charcuterie platters.
The Cellar Door Wine Store in Beechworth showcases a comprehensive range of Beechworth wines, some of which are available to taste.
For a personalised tour, barrel tasting or a tasting plate of local produce, message the Beechworth Hidden Wineries Facebook group or contact any winery directly. Each month there will be a featured winery, such as Sorrenberg or Domenica that will also be open for that weekend only.
Check the Facebook page for details of this month’s featured winery.
