Welcome to Innocent Bystander. Come visit us at our home in Healesville (we call it IBHQ) for some delicious wine and great food.

We think our wines are best enjoyed with good company and great food, so we crafted our menu with sharing in mind. Created from fresh ingredients and inspired by classic dishes we love. Our food matches our wines, delicious! 

We have pizzas, tasty paella, delicious pastries, share boards that include some local produce or enjoy some a non-wine option such as our IB cider, Hargreaves Hill Beer (Yarra Valley) Four Pillars Gin (Yarra Valley) and Melbourne coffee

Our pizzas are popular and we take them seriously. Our authentic, wood fired pizzas show off classic toppings and quality local and international ingredients like Prosciuto di San Daniele, buffalo mozzarella, Calabrese salami and locally made spicy pork (from the Beef Joint) which suits our Pinot Noir nicely.

There’s the whole range of Innocent Bystander wines, from Prosecco to Syrah all served fresh from temperature controlled draught taps by the glass or carafe. Our Moscato deserves a mention as it’s a wine like no other; deliciously fruity, fresh and luscious. It tastes like angels tears and fairy floss served over strawberries and cream and we love it. IB Moscato is a fun party starter, but also great for a picnic lunch or a cheeky brunch. 

Whatever you want to come to enjoy at IBHQ, make yourself comfortable and relax. We would love to see you here! #IBWINE.
