Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of the historic Werribee Park Precinct with a Crawl around the estate taking in two of its eateries and the celebrated Shadowfax winery.
The Crawl starts at Joseph’s Restaurant & Bar. It’s a venue famed for its Sunday high tea, and it’s from this signature that inspiration has been drawn for the savoury delicacies we’ll be enjoying. Joseph’s is part of the Lancemore Mansion Hotel Werribee Park, ranked one of the top 25 hotels in Australia by TripAdvisor, and if you’d like to make a weekend of it, accommodation is available.
Back on the Crawl the next stop is the newest offering at the precinct, The Refectory Parlour. A garden-style cafe and wine bar set within a heritage building and gardens, this new venue offers indoor and outdoor dining, a cake counter, and gourmet picnic hampers. For our visit chef Sara O’Callaghan promises a meal packed with Victorian produce.
The final stop on the Crawl is Shadowfax Wines. Dedicated to creating high quality, handcrafted wines, Shadowfax produces chardonnay, pinot gris and pinot noir from its high-altitude Little Hampton vineyard in the Macedon Ranges as well as a range of Minnow wines from its Werribee vineyard. Savour views of the vineyard as the winemaker leads a tasting of the estate’s wines.
