Warming winters at Tallis

The cold weather is upon us. The vines have shed their autumn foliage and are are bedding down for the next few months to withstand the winter chill.

Up at the cellar door its a different story, the fires are burning, it's warm and cosy and mulled wine is now on offer! The newly planted crops are pushing their green heads through the Dookie dirt and the landscape is changing to a lush green. Every week the country side looks different and on a clear day you can even see the snow capped peaks of Mt Buller. It is a wonderful sight to watch a storm roll in over the hills through the windows of the cellar door or even better on a still winter's day to sit on our verandah wrapped in a blanket in front of the fire enjoying a regional platter and a glass of red.

We are open every Friday, Saturday & Sunday 11am to 5pm and remember the cellar door is also available for private bookings any night of the week all through winter. What's not to love about wine education and wine tasting at a business event or social gathering? Or you are welcome to just use the space and drink the wine, bring your own catering in or talk to us about our popular offerings. For more information contact our cellar door manager Susan on 0437 825 547

Exhibition Opening this Friday 7th March @ 5pm


ALL WELCOME Local artists Liz Evans and Andrew Sands (Sandsy) have created an outstanding exhibition of their work reflecting the micro and macro magnificence of Dookie.

Liz and Sandsy hope that this exhibition conveys the excitement and admiration they have for their surroundings.

From the ‘WOW check this out’ effect when noticing for the first time the beauty of microscopic hairs on a seed stem of Austrostipa elegantissima to the imposing defiance of the silos a Youanmite.

Liz’s work displays her dexterity with tweezers and vegetation, while Sandsy has been known to employ the use of a pressure washer now and then.

Visit Tallis Wine during March 2014, be inspired by this beautiful exhibition and experience the artistic splendour of Dookie. Exhibition Opening this Friday 7th March @ 5pm
