All Saints Estate is possibly one of the most amazing vineyards to visit in Victoria. First of all, it’s an iconic estate with a turreted castle (how often of you see one of those?) and it has been producing award-winning wines for 150 years.
The estate provides one of the region’s finest winery dining experiences. It is owned by Eliza, Angela and Nicholas Brown. I got to have a chat to Nick, and it was intriguing to hear about the work that goes into a winery. On an average day, he will begin tasting from 7.30am to test the acidity levels of the wine – no wonder he admits he prefers a gin and tonic after a long day!
Random fact: approximately 300-400 grapes go into a single bottle of wine.
All Saints is one of the most beautiful spots I have visited in a long time. The estate also has a restaurant called the Terrace Restaurant and the Indigo Cheese Co. store, which sells an extensive range of gourmet food and gifts. I can highly recommend trying the Chef’s tasting menu in the Terrace Restaurant on a Saturday evening (with matching wines), and indulging in a cheese platter with wine on a lazy afternoon from Indigo Cheese Co.
Wine + cheese = bliss.
