This cellar door is a smart operation, from its fit-out to the great service by the wait staff and maitre de, to the very knowledgeable cellar door person who guided me through the wines of Shadowfax.
We arrived on what was a beautiful autumn day without a lunch booking on a spur of the moment decision, only to find all the tables inside were fully booked and all outdoor picnic tables taken. That did not stop the restaurant manager going above and beyond. We were offered the choice of dining in a lounge area to the side of the restaurant or being supplied with a picnic rug so we could lunch on the lawn outside. We chose the second option, ordered our food at the bar then I headed to the wine tasting section.
I started the tasting with a quality Sauvignon Blanc, meandered through the list stopping for a great Chardonnay, the unusual “ Minnow” red blend, a classy “One Eye” Shiraz and finally a Sparkling Shiraz. My host at this tasting was fantastic! He talked a little on each of the wines and the fact it was such a busy day did not deter him at all.
A jazz trio played in one corner of the room, adding to the atmosphere and the music level was perfect, allowing you to talk to your guests without yelling. The band’s music was also piped outside so those dining in the sun did not miss out.
Someone has given great thought to all the little details at Shadowfax and it shows up in that way that it was professionally run. With an easy drive down the Geelong freeway from Melbourne this should be a no brainer as a must see winery cellar door.

    :

    Shadowfax winery is next to Werribee Mansion. We got there early & spent a couple of hours exploring the grounds of Werribee Mansion. Ready for lunch we headed to the winery & spent a couple of hours listening to the Jazz trio & grazing on some great food. It was very busy, so lucky I had pre-booked a table. I can’t think of a better way to a day. It seemed like a great place for big groups as well.

    Some of the best wines in Victoria, if not Australia! I love plonking a bottle of their chardonnay or shiraz on the table at a dinner party and listening for the ‘oooohhhs’ and ‘aaaahhhhss’. Outstanding venue and cleverly designed
