more than just a winery
When you hear a wine described as "estate bottled" or see "estate" on a wine label, it means the grapes are grown on land owned by the winery. Shaws Road wines are just that - estate grown wines - made from grapes from our own vineyards in Arthurs Creek and Strathewen.
The wines are produced on site at the winery, and sold to a growing list of local restaurants, wine shops and loyal customers. Classified as a Yarra Valley winery we produce wines true to the region - dry crisp whites and full bodied reds.
Come along to the winery and talk direct to the Wine Makers - we will be happy to show you around and explain the story behind each wine.
We are open the third Sunday of each month from February to December, and for special regional wine events (Yarra Valley wine events, and Nillumbik region wine events).
~Eltham Farmers Markets ~
The Eltham Farmers Market has been running for 12 months now and has proven to be one of the most successful markets in Melbourne. The market is open the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month between 8.30am and 12.30pm. Crowds turn up early to take advantage of the great produce available and most stalls sell out of fresh produce by late morning. In the tradition of farmers' markets in Europe this is about selling direct to the public at Farmers Market prices. Shaws Road Winery is pleased to support the Eltham Farmers' Market - you'll find us right beside the Apted Apple & Pear stall.
~Winery Open Days - 3rd Sunday of each month~
The Winery is open each month on the 3rd Sunday of the month: a chance to meet the wine-maker, tour the cellars, and for wine tastings and sales at Cellar Door prices. A light lunch is always available to enjoy sitting on the verandah overlooking the incredible views. For large groups, a booking is essential.
