Harpley’s Local Cellar Door: Shadowfax

Shadowfax Winery

One of Victoria’s finest vineyard estates is only 10 minutes away from Harpley. Shadowfax is renowned for their handcrafted wines and delectable restaurant that specialises in woodfired cooking.

With a small vineyard on site, the boutique winery at Shadowfax creates thousands of cases a year of pinos gris, chardonnay, shiraz and pinot noir. You can sample all of these wines at their cellar door which is a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends and family.

The onsite restaurant prides itself on rustic Italian fare that focuses on fresh ingredients – resident Shadowfax chef Ben D’Arcy even handpicks his herbs and vegetables from the onsite garden. There is a strong emphasis on woodfired oven techniques and their famed pizzas are sure to be a crowd pleaser.

If you are keen on using the restaurant for a special occasion, Shadowfax also has the option for you to hire the space for a personal or corporate event.
