Due to Covid19, Open Cellars has been postponed. It is hoped an event can still be offered in October 2020 given further restrictions easing. We will update our website accordingly.
Join in NIllumbik's Winter Open Cellars Weekend and visit the friendly family-owned wineries of the Nillumbik Winemakers of the Nillumbik Shire, for a June weekend of great wine, great food and live music!
The wineries are nestled among the green rolling Artisan Hills in this pretty part of the world, among country Australian hamlets with typical Aussie names like Kangaroo Ground, Smiths Gully, Arthurs Creek, St. Andrews, Yarrambat and Watsons Creek – the place oozes with history and charm. To get to the Artisan Hills region (only 45 minutes from the CBD or the Melbourne airport) head north of Melbourne, heading to Eltham or Greensborough – from there just follow the map (above).
You can make a weekend of it and stay at one of the cosy BnB’s found on the Visit Nillumbik website. How about starting out on Saturday morning with a visit to the famous St Andrews country market? Then design your own wine trail, and progress from winery to winery, making sure to enjoy the views and some tasty country fare for lunch at the wineries.
