Shantell Vineyard is a small vineyard and winery situated in a picturesque hillside setting at Dixons Creek, just 60 kilometres from the heart of Melbourne. Visitors are very welcome to Shantell Vineyard's modern restaurant and tasting facilities. The combination of good food, good wines and exceptional views makes sitting down for a meal almost irresistible. The outlook is stunning and the Aboriginal art collection on display on the dining room and cellar door quite unique. 'Hidden away in a lovely quiet little area among the gum trees and foothills at the northern end of the Yarra Valley, Shantell is a great place to visit. The relaxing pastel-coloured cellar door and friendly restaurant have picture windows that invite the outside in as though you are sitting among the vines, and you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere outside in warm weather. Shantell's wines are very good too, offering consistency and high quality at fair prices. A winery worth a detour.'

Wild Dog Winery, Restaurant, Vineyard and Cellar Door Situated just three kilometres from Warragul (100km east of Melbourne) on Warragul Korumburra Rd, Wild Dog Winery & Restaurant offers stunning views of the Strzelecki Ranges combined with picturesque vineyard and olive plantation scenery from the newly established cellar door and restaurant complex. Most Successful Exhibitor Gippsland Wine Show 2009 The winery and vineyard was established in 1982 with the name "Wild Dog" coming from the nearby township of Warragul that is derived from the Aboriginal word "Warrigal" meaning dingo or wild dog. In 2009 Wild Dog was presented with the "Most Successful Exhibitor" award at the annual Gippsland Wine Show. Experience the taste of Gippsland Wild Dog Winery invites you to experience the seasonal A La Carte Dinner Menu or relax on the deck in picturesque vineyard settings, enjoying a light brunch or lunch, taking in the atmosphere that is uniquely Wild Dog, whilst enjoying the range of award winning cool climate wines. Wines: Extensive range of sparkling, table and dessert wines, including some exclusively to cellar door wines. 'In the heart of Gippsland's fertile dairy country, Wild Dog is a lovely place to visit. A long tree-lined driveway leads down through rich farmland, grazing cows, and tree-topped hills to the winery and cellar door. A new restaurant takes advantage of the superb views with large windows and a generously proportioned outdoor deck area, while a wetlands environment is being developed for visitors to stroll through. It's excellent white wine country with Chardonnay and Riesling the highlights, but Shiraz is evolving in quality as the vineyard matures.' Review by Ralph Kyte-Powell.
