Yarre Valley, Rochford Wines.
Winery Tour Lunch
On my second day in Melbourne, I went for a wine tour at Yarre Valley with GoWestTours. The tour guide came and picked up from our hotel. At one of its stops, we were there for our lunch. Tasting wine while having lunch.
We were giving the menu before arriving at the restaurant and we have to choose from the menu. Since, I do not take lamb, so I opted for beef, the Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek.
The lunch was ready as soon as we sat down at the reservation tables at one of the corner of the restaurant.
It came with three different types of wines for our tasting. Generally, I liked all the food above but I cannot tell much about how nice the beef is because it is my first time eating it. I did not know how well it has to be cooked, however, I felt it was slightly overcooked and too soft for my taste-bud. The death by chocolate was a very rich chocolate cake and it did go well with wine that they matched for us.
Here is the close up of the wagyu beef,
The scenery around this restaurant is very nice and it has an observation desk above the restaurant which allows the patrons to go up and visit.
Address: 878 – 880 Maroondah Hwy, Coldstream, Victoria, Australia.
Ambience: Big and nice restaurant. A little big noisy as there are crowd of people around either for dining or wine tasting.
Rate: 3/5. Nice chocolate cake and views around the restaurant.
