Byramine Homestead

Reviewed By A_Land_Sailor - Cleveland, Australia

Came across this beautiful historic building, that is so very interesting to go in, and see the rooms, and sit and listen to the history being told The boutique brewery along side, but far enough away so not to ruin the view of the old building, has fabulous meals at reasonable prices. If you pay the $7.50 to enter the home you can sample 2 of the beers/ciders included in the price. The huge platter for 2 was fantastic. As it was a lovely day it was so relaxing sitting at one of the many tables around the property... Could not find a more relaxed atmosphere than at the historic Byramine Homestead & brewery. Would certainly recommend this place.

Monichino Wines

The rolling hills of Piemonte and the flat plains of Victoria's Goulburn Valley are worlds apart. However the classic tradition of wine making has transferred flawlessly from one hemisphere to the other. When Carlo Monichino migrated from the Asti region in Northern Italy he brought his winemaking skills with him and in 1962, together with his wife Margaret, planted a vineyard in Katunga. The rich soil and excellent climatic conditions make this region ideal for grape growing. In fact vines were first planted in the area in the 1880's, making it one of the oldest grape growing regions in Australia. Monichinos is a true family concern, with Carlo, his son Terry, and daughter Anna all involved. Terry, after studying wine science in Australia and working in the industry overseas, has taken over from Carlo as head winemaker, while Anna manages administration, including functions, and the cellar door. Visitors are welcome and the cellar door is open 7 days a week, Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm. Call in for a chat over a large range of award winning wines for tasting. Monichino's friendly staff will help you with your wine selection and provide you with information on food and wine matches. Take the time to Relax and enjoy a regional cheese platter with a glass of wine in the well laid out picnic grounds overlooking the vineyard. Cheese Platters, Muffins & Hot drinks available every day.

This is a really worthwhile place to visit. The guide was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for him. The display was very well presented. Heaps of photos and a great range of items on display. It gives you a really good idea of what the Barmah Forest was like before it was so badly exploited by the early settlers. It must have been a paradise for the Indigenous people of the area. Well worth giving yourself an hour or so to have a thorough look around the whole exhibition.

The Big Strawberry

Reviewed By julie31332016 - Sydney, Australia

We called in on a rainy day for morning coffee and scones with strawberry jam and cream. My cappuccino was delicious and my husband enjoyed his flat white coffee. The scones were delicious and the service was excellent- and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Next time we visit we will try the pancakes or the waffles. Thank you.
