In our store we represent winemakers who don’t have their own cellar door facilities. The wines are made in small quantities, with a great deal of passion and knowledge by some of the finest winemakers in the Yarra Valley. Customers have an opportunity to discover these wines that are not easily found outside of the Yarra Valley.
Wines can be purchased by the glass (on rotation) or by the bottle to accompany our delicious cheeses and fine produce in our Cheese Shop (until 4:30pm).
Please note: We are only licensed to serve alcohol purchased in our store, so please, no BYO.
Alongside our beautiful artisan cheeses, we have a selection of carefully selected items for purchase. With so many fellow Yarra Valley businesses producing premium products, we are spoilt for choice when it comes stocking our shelves.

Supporting our local producers has always been a focus for us at Yarra Valley Dairy, along with the constant search for products made with consideration, care and quality ingredients or components.
