Harpley’s Local Cellar Door: Shadowfax
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.
