Garden Party

February 9 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

BYO picnic rug and good vibes on Sunday 9 February and join Rob Dolan Wines and the crew from The Farm Yarra Valley, as we host a perfectly chilled day in our sprawling gardens only 30 minutes from the city.

“$5 from every bottle of wine sold on the day, plus proceeds from the gold coin entry, will be donated to the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal and the Victorian CFA”, said Rob Dolan, Winemaker and Managing Director.

“A lot of us here in the Valley are looking at any and all ways in which we can throw our support behind those impacted by the current fires, so please come and join us as we do our bit”, Rob went on to say.

We will have live music, cheese by locally produced Stone and Crow Cheese Company, meals by head chef Vinny and his team from The Farm Yarra Valley, beers by The Public Brewery and the opportunity to enjoy our comprehensive range of wines over a game of bocce with your mates.

Bookings for the Garden Party are not required; but Rob Dolan Wines & The Farm Yarra Valley ask guests to make a gold coin donation upon entry. Strictly no BYO food or drink. Arrive early if you require seating, alternatively BYO picnic rug or low-lying deck chair.

This will be a glass free event – upon your first drink purchase you will be required to purchase a branded beer or wine GoVino for just $4 which is yours to keep (non-refundable).

Between studying Primary Education at University and working as an Education Support Officer at a Primary School, you can catch Lucie in our Cellar Door. We’d like to say she’s sharing her passion for wine, but Lucie believes wine is less of a passion and more of a necessity considering her regular 9-3 job.⁣

This cooler weather may be ideal for the fruit, but not so much for the winemakers.

One of our winemaking team members, Luke, took a step back in time last year when he travelled to Burgundy to join Nicholas and Colleen for vintage. In the heart of Côte-d’Or lies the little village of Savigny-lès-Beaune. This is where Nic and Colleen set up shop where there was no machine picking fruit, no fork lift tipping picking bins into the destemmer and no barrel racks to move them around. They hand-picked, hand-sorted, manually tipping every grape into a fermenter and manually pressing the fruit. By the end of his stay, Luke knew every drop of wine flowing through the place like it was his own after tasting every individual barrel every morning and night. Although it was an amazing experience, Luke’s pretty excited to be home in the Yarra Valley and back on his trusty forklift for Vintage 2020. ⁣

We’ve got a pretty great bunch of people here at Rob Dolan Wines, a collection of different characters from different backgrounds. Being a family business it’s not unusual for guests to see multiple Dolans (of both the two and four legged varieties) around the winery. Both Tess and Max Dolan can be regularly spotted in the Cellar Door helping the team out on days off from their usual 9-5’s. Pop in for a tasting with Tess or Max and hear all about their upbringing in the wine industry and what it’s like to have an iconic winemaker for a Dad.⁣

During vintage our Lab Technician Peta is one of the busiest people in the winery. Fruit samples are brought into the lab for both technical and sensory analysis; it’s Peta’s job to crush the grape samples by hand, before clarifying the juice and measuring the baume (sugar content) and pH (acid) levels. On any given day Peta might receive up to 30kg of grapes from our Grape Growers from all across the Yarra Valley! This testing process is critical in assisting our winemaking team to decide when to pick the vineyards.⁣
