Yarrawood Estate

1275 Melba Highway
Yarra Glen
VIC 3775

We'd been to Yarrawood a few years ago, and were back for a Saturday lunch. There were a few other diners but there was plenty of space, as the weather was great for the deck outside. The cellar door cafe menu focus on sharing plates and light lunch items.

I went for the turkey foccacia, which was tasty and filling without being out of this world.

The chicken schnitzel foccacia was likewise fine without being exceptional.

I didn't try the wine, but apparently the rose was great.

The setting amongst the vineyards is spectacular with wonderful views of vines and the Yarra valley beyond. The service was a bit Jekyll and Hyde, with one wonderful waitress and a seemingly stressed or angry manager... It's worth popping in here on a sunny day for the setting alone!
