Things to do
As well as an outstanding Cellar Door facility, the sprawling estate hosts a restaurant and the Indigo Cheese Co, all set amidst historical buildings and formal gardens.
1. Cellar Door
A visit to Cellar Door provides a complete experience, one that starts well before you enter the imposing gates. From the main road 2.5km of hedge runs along the perimeter of the estate. The entrance is lined by 130 year old Elm Trees which change beautifully with the seasons. Once on foot, you will pass through the stunning landscaped gardens as you make your way to the Castle entrance.
Friendly knowledgable staff will guide you through our large range of table and fortified wines. A private tasting in one of the finest facilities in Australia is only a phone call away. The "Family Cellar" stores some of All Saints Estate's oldest and rarest wines. A private tasting surrounded by the sleeping wines and the fragrant oak is truly an experience to remember.
Those who have worked up an appetite can then enjoy a full à la carte menu at The Terrace restaurant or wander over to Indigo Cheese Co. and graze on handmade artisan cheeses.
2. Terrace Restaurant
The à la carte Terrace Restaurant is adjacent to cellar door and overlooks sweeping lawns to the vineyards beyond - no wonder it is North East Victoria's favorite dining experience. Here you can sample award-winning wines and discover divine local produce in our seasonal menu. This indulgence can be enjoyed from Wednesday to Sunday for lunch and Saturday night for dinner.
With the growth of functions at both All Saints Estate and St Leonards Vineyard, we have the ability to satisfy all tastes. Look out for the next instalment of special internationally themed dinners, and don’t forget Terrace Restaurant also offers a fabulous degustation menu. This is a great way to sample a number of dishes, perfectly matched with All Saints Estate and St Leonards wines.
3. Cheese Tasting
Our Provender-style cheese tasting room stocks a range of gourmet cheeses, antipasto and local produce; the perfect complement to our premium wines. Drop in and be tempted by delicious cheeses, chutneys, jams, sauces, olive oils, chocolates and spices. A great reminder of your trip to North-east Victoria!
Work began in mid 2005 at the All Saints Estate to gut an existing building and turn it into the tasting room for the Indigo Cheese Co. The tasting room, previously the Hall of Fame, is a large building with spectacular views overlooking the vineyards in both directions. It features a glass cool room behind the counter, lots of open space with a large area at one end featuring a long table for private tastings and education sessions.
4. Chinese Dormitory
It shows how harsh the living conditions could be in the 1900’s and is the third building on the Estate to be classified by the Historic Buildings Council. The other two buildings are the Castle and the Cheese Tasting Room (formerly the bottling hall and cellar).

5. Winery Viewing Area
The new winery viewing area gives customers a unique experience to see the winery in operation from a birds-eye perspective. Currently a work in progress, Eliza, Angela and Nick have many plans to enhance this experience over the next 12 months.
For a full view of the action during vintage (February - April) make sure you don't miss the Winery Viewing Area on your next visit.
If you're looking for a unique space for an event, this space can also be booked for functions and private dining.
6. Family Cellar
The Family Cellar is a very special place for sleeping barrels. Private tastings are available for small groups (up to 10 people) and can be arranged by contacting us online or phone 1800 021 621. The tastings are tailor made to your wine interest and provides a great opportunity to learn more about the wines at All Saints Estate. With a custom made modern tasting table and exclusive glassware, this is truly an experience to remember.
