Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo
Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo is a private and peaceful 65-hectare farmland and vineyard estate that is surrounded by the natural beauty of the bush and the state park. On the property you will find an abundance of birds and wildlife and will be warmly greeted by the winery’s much loved border collie Buddy, and cheeky shih tzu Soda. Conveniently situated to enjoy both the Bendigo and Goldfield tourist attractions, Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo is only seven kilometres from Bendigo’s CBD and the city’s renowned arts, history, and café culture precinct.
There is an abundance of wonderful history at Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo, and the shiraz and cabernet vines are the oldest in the Bendigo region. Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo was recently purchased by the Burke family, who plan to bring three generations of the one family together as custodians of this very special property, preserving its future while honouring its rich historical past.
Closely following many traditional European grape growing methods adjusted to suit the unique location and climate along the fertile flats of Myer’s Creek – from dry land farming to sustainable, organic, and regenerative practices – the fifty-three-year-old vines produce great-tasting, well balanced grapes that are handpicked for small batch, premium award-winning wines.
Experienced local winemaker Lindsay Ross has been creating natural, handcrafted wines from this picturesque vineyard under his label for more than thirty-five years. The Burkes along with their daughter Denise Langford have taken on the management and restoration role and will now present the first wine label in the property’s 155-year history. Lindsay will continue to make the single estate Byronsvale wine, while mentoring Denise and sharing his extensive and intimate knowledge of the vineyard.
The stunning centrepiece of Byronsvale Vineyard & Accommodation Bendigo is the original heritage-listed, two storey, grand sandstone stables along with the homestead and gardens which overlook the 3-hectare vineyard. D.C. Sterry, one of the first Mayors of Bendigo commissioned the stables to be built, and they now offer three superbly restored and converted self-contained apartments, designed to provide all the comforts expected in fine accommodation – a holiday destination to be enjoyed by all.
