Dine Among the Vines

Fully immerse yourself in these iconic High Country vineyards

From gentle slopes to rich low plains, from multi-generation family vineyards to innovative young winemakers, the North East has a diversity and abundance of exceptional wine across six wine regions: Alpine Valleys, Beechworth, Glenrowan, King Valley, Rutherglen and Upper Goulburn.

With the villages and wine districts of the High Country in close proximity, wine touring and indulging in local food go hand in hand. Many vineyards include fabulous dining experiences right in the vines. Here are our top picks...

Top places to dine in the vines

This little gem in the Rutherglen Wine Region is known for exquisite French cuisine thanks to chef Briony Bradford. Ingredients are carefully sourced from local growers with award winning wine to easily take lunch into a long lunch.' The heritage listed Jones Winery cellar door is a site to see alone, but be sure to dine outside to take in the source of that lovely drop!

For arguably the best winery view in the High Country, Feathertop Winery is the place for you. Enjoy stunning cool-climate wines and delicious locally sourced food to a backdrop of flourishing vines and beautiful Mt Buffalo.

Aside from calling the immaculate, expansive grounds of All Saints Estate home, The Terrace Restaurant also boasts an Australian Good Food Guide Hat (and has done for seven consecutive years). For a seriously impressive dining experience, The Terrace Restaurant will over-deliver every time.

The King Valley triple treat - unbelievable views, award-winning wine and superb Italian cuisine. Driving through the stone gates of Chrismont, you already know you're in for something special. The elegant cellar door and restaurant sits comfortably among the green rolling vines and beautiful vistas. Those views combined with a contemporary Italian menu are what dreams are made of.
