Yarra Valley’s TarraWarra Estate had reopened for lunch in the restaurant with a new menu, as well as a new picnic offering to be enjoyed on the picturesque lawn overlooking the vines and TarraWarra Museum of Art’s outdoor sculptures.
Chef Mark Ebbels spent lockdown in his home garden, becoming more passionate in his commitment to sustainability and the natural environment. The restaurant’s tasting menu and picnic baskets reflect this, along with the importance of connecting to the local community and using Estate-grown produce.
TarraWarra restaurant’s tasting menu includes:
● Buxton trout with chardonnay and mustard
● Kangaroo with radicchio and garlic
● White bean with tomato and asparagus
● Warm custard with onion and wild garlic
TarraWarra grazing picnic hampers are available for $65 per person with a minimum order of two, and a kids hamper for $15 per child. The hampers include a mix of sweet and savoury items such as:
● Fresh breads with crackers, lavosh and cheese
● Hummus with Mt Zero olives and fermented vegetable slaw
● Chicken with beetroot, feta and pickled onion
● Charcuterie with pickles
● Sausage roll with spiced tomato sauce
● 69 per cent single origin chocolate slice
Guests are encouraged to dress according to the weather and to arrive equipped with their own rugs for a picnic on the lawn, while the Estate will supply glassware, cutlery and crockery.
Diners can pair a selection of the Estate wines with their meal. Perfect for the warmer weather, a few of the premium choices include 2019 Rosé, 2018 South Block Chardonnay, 2018 Estate Chardonnay and 2018 Reserve Chardonnay.
Limited seating will be available for indoor dining at the restaurant and outdoor picnics due to the current restrictions. Patrons are encouraged to secure their booking in advance by visiting tarrawarra.com.au/book-now/.
Due to current Victorian Government restrictions, TarraWarra Museum of Art remains closed. It is expected to reopen in summer with Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce.
