Food & wine
Dalwhinnie is the first of three producers participating in the exclusive Cellar Series Lunches at Lake House. Experience an intimate four course shared table lunch with a selection of older and current release wines in the stunning Waterfront Pavilion private dining space. Lunch hosted by winemaker David Jones.
One of Victoria’s oldest, family run vineyards, David and Jenny Jones have been growing grapes for more than 37 years at Dalwhinnie, located near the small village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria. Regarded as a super-premium producer of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
The 16 hectare vineyard is now fully mature, producing true varietal fruit characters with great concentration of flavours. At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges.
