  • Description

    Description

    We run a very small family-owned and operated vineyard, brewery, cidery, and distillery 2km from Macarthur, Victoria. It's a beautiful place close to Budj Bim National Park, with lots of koalas and native birds. There are bike / walking trails at Budj Bim National park, with the Southern Hemisphere's largest wind farm about 30 minutes drive away. We are also about 30 minutes drive away from Hamilton and Port Fairy. The closest beach is only 20 minutes drive away. We're pretty friendly and relaxed; we can speak English, Afrikaans and Dutch fluently, but we don't care how much English you speak. We're not vegetarian (but you're welcome to cook vegetarian meals), we don't smoke, and we have some suffolk sheep, chickens, guinea fowls, alpacas and two dogs on the property.
    My wife and I are expats from South Africa and have done a lot of travelling, both within Australia and around the world, and we are always keen to meet new people and exchange culture, knowledge, recipes and conversation.

    Grape picking is between March and April and we host a music festival called Music in the Vines on 2 March if you want to be part of this!
