Winter is coming and so is the joy of jumping in the car and heading out with friends and family to explore the serene Victorian countryside.
There’s no better time to get out of town and go exploring; the lush green landscapes are breathtaking, fresh air is abundant and regional towns are bustling with farmers’ produce, craft markets and other seasonal attractions.
If you’re looking for the ultimate winter adventure (and some delicious food and wine along the way) Rochford Wines in the Yarra Valley may just be the ideal destination to warm the soul.
Fireside Dining at Isabella’s Restaurant
The best way to enjoy a cosy afternoon is to indulge in some scrumptious food. If there’s a fireplace involved, even better.
With hearty winter warmers on the menu like delicate slow cooked beef, crispy arancini and confit duck leg, Rochford’s signature dining space Isabella’s Restaurant is welcoming visitors all week long.
As well as a menu bursting with fresh seasonal ingredients, and a wine list that can be expertly paired with your meal by our sommeliers, sit back and take in picturesque views of the surrounding vineyards, from the comfort of a fully glass encased dining room.
Complete with an open fireplace, friendly service, and 360 degree windows to soak in all the gorgeous scenery, Isabella’s is the place to be for enjoying the best of winter while sipping a glass of our highly-rated Rochford wine.
