If you have an obsession with fine wine, refreshing ales, food and art, all in a relaxed atmosphere, then look no further than Otway Estate.
Situated in the beautiful Otway Hinterland, Otway Estate produces a liquid to quench any thirst, from their fine wines and premium beers to their seasonal cordial selections.
Each beverage is teamed with its own tasting platter full of scrumptious local delicacies prepared on site.
Established in 1983, Otway Estate produced table and berry wines under the Barongavale label. A change of ownership in 1996 saw the planting of more vines expanding the varieties to include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc.
In late 2000, luxury adult accommodation was built amongst the bush with views over the vines. Luxurious spa baths and complete privacy, the cottages really do offer a unique getaway and enable guests to experience the peace and tranquillity of the bush.
In 2006 the latest development emerged, Otway Estate now boasts a winery, brewery, gallery, function facility, café/lounge and expanded cellar door. The cellar door has a retail food outlet enabling the visitor to sample regional and home made produce. While the café, lounge or deck provides a place to relax and enjoy a tasting plate teamed with your favourite beverage.
Otway Estate wine is produced by using only estate-grown grapes and traditional methods. As the coolest climate winery on the mainland, the conditions are ideally suited to the production of premium sparkling wines.
Any beer connoisseur knows you need good water to make good beer. Their beers are produced using pure Otway rainwater - so not only are they good beers, they are sensational beers. Their first beer was released March 2007.
