Yarra tourism drawcard rises from the ashes

One of the Yarra Valley's major tourism drawcards has re-opened after devastating fires in the middle of 2020. 

Balgownie Estate Yarra Valley has unveiled the opening of its brand-new restaurant, cellar door and function rooms as part of a multi-million dollar rebuild.

More than 100 industry partners, VIPs and media (not me, unfortunately) were guests last week at a re-launch event. 

Balgownie Estate’s new restaurant, 1309@Balgownie takes its name from the winery’s address and will feature food curated by Grant Flack and Beth Candy along with the new cellar door, function area and outdoor deck bar overlooking the Dandenong Ranges.

The new restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner to the public seven days a week from mid-January, while the 4 1/2-star resort is also taking bookings for meetings, events and functions. 

“At Balgownie Estate Yarra Valley, we have a clear focus on supporting our local regional producers and being able to deliver a fantastic authentic experience based around fine wine and delicious food," said executive chef Flack. 

"Our team can’t wait to showcase what we have been working on to the public and provide them with the utmost luxurious and relaxing experience, as promised.”

The on-site spa suites and guest rooms are now welcoming vaccinated guests.
