Local Travel Planner

Select Option

Highlights

Escape from the city for a leisurely day of tasting estate grown wines and fine dining in the bucolic countryside of the Southern Highlands.

About This Deal

This leisurely day of wining and dining in the country begins with a scenic drive from Sydney Harbour to the Southern Highlands, just 90 minutes outside the city.

On arrival at Centennial Vineyards it’s back to school with a Pinot Masterclass showcasing the premier grape variety of this cool-climate region. Hosted by a resident Centennial Vineyards oenophile learn about the various Pinot mutations used to make their sparklings, whites, rosés and reds while tasting flights of estate-grown wines accompanied by matching morsels.

Continuing the focus on local produce, experience fine dining Southern Highlands style at chef-hatted restaurant eschalot. Owner and head chef Matty Roberts leads you through the garden where he picks the freshest of fresh ingredients to prepare the three course lunch you are about to savour. Complementing Matty’s skill in the kitchen, owner and maître d’ Cass Wallace selects a local wine to match each course.

After lunch enjoy a wander around the charming Georgian village of Berrima. Browse the quaint shops along the leafy main street – look out for tea, chocolate, locally-made preserves and arts and crafts – and admire the colonial sandstone buildings.
