Priced at $140 per person, the 90 minute tours which run on the weekends and public holidays, provide comprehensive training and take guests through the grapevines along Rochford’s 4WD track.
New Chef’s Table and new Sunday High Teas at Chateau Yering
Over at the iconic Chateau Yering a new Chef’s Table, which can be themed according to diners’ preferences, has just launched at highly acclaimed Eleanore’s Restaurant.

Greenpoint Bar offers a full range of Chandon sparkling and still wines, a delectable Chandon cocktail and a selection of delicious bar snacks. The winery has also introduced new interactive touch screens to enhance the existing tour route by providing information and little known winemaking facts.
