Wombat Forest Vineyard
Our family owned vineyard established in 1997 is nestled on the edge of the Wombat State Forest with its rich diversity of bird and animal life all of whom are partial to grapes. An elevation of 600 metres, abundant natural springs and rich volcanic soil, all combine to create a unique niche for viticulture and wombats. Our wine displays classic, cool climate characteristics derived from an extended ripening period. Our grapes are hand pruned and picked and our reds are matured in French Oak. We have a cosy tasting room and courtyard with extensive views of the Wombat Forest. We pride ourselves on using environmentally friendly practices.
Here at Daylesford Cider we produce a range of multi-award winning ciders made using the 17 varieties of English-heritage listed cider apples we grow organically on the farm just outside Daylesford. The styles of cider range from traditional ‘still’ with an almost bone-dry palate, through to lightly carbonated and sweeter ones.
It only seems fitting that our ciders are sold from an English style Tavern cellar door. The Tavern offers a cosy setting in Winter and in Summer people can kick back in the courtyard and landscaped gardens and enjoy the lawn games.
The cellar door is open 7 days a week serving our range of ciders to drink in or take home, as well as local and regional beers, wines & soft drinks. The kitchen is open for lunch Friday-Monday, offering a modest menu to accompany a cider or two.
We host live music, private parties, weddings, food events and more, so please get in touch to see how we can help. A Cider Makers Tour can be arranged with notice. See you soon, Cheers!

In 2013 Jen & Owen Latta established WINE AND THE COUNTRY,
a wine shop & bar in Daylesford showcasing little known and lo-fi wine producers. Four years later and it's time to add to the wine offering by opening a delicatessen, sandwich & coffee bar right next door.
Dos is a Spanish inspired delicatessen stocking some of the regions's & the World's best cheese and smallgoods producers.
Drawing on their too-short time in Grenada, Owen & Jen wanted to recreate their favourite aspects of their trip and open small delicatessen showcasing the regions and the worlds best cheeses, where you can also get simple toasties & baguettes using only the most authentic ingredients. Quality bread, meats & cheeses in the humble baguette, panini or sourdough toastie.
+ a variety of coffee & soft drink offerings for sit in or takeaway.
