We look forward to sharing this special place with you. The only footprint is yours

A small family winery established in 1972. Located 3km from the coast between Torquay and Barwon Heads. A very secluded place in the Thomson Valley.

Wines are made in the traditional way and have always been good value.

Minya by Moonlight in the ampitheatre during summer offers jazz, country, blues, folk and opera. Minya is a popular place for weddings and family functions. Views over the billabong and wetlands creates a very tranquil scene.

The cafe is open weekends over summer. Cabin accommodation is available
