It’s back! After the popularity of our first release of Two Barrel Batch back in 2018, Rob decided, why not make another one? As most of you will know, the Yarra Valley isn’t exactly known for fortified wine, so we had to look a little further North to bring this idea to fruition. ⁣

A phone call later to a winemaker mate in Rutherglen and Rob had arranged to swap some of his Pinot Noir for some Muscat and so, Two Barrel Batch was reborn. ⁣

Available now in limited quantities exclusively through our Cellar Door, open 7 days a week, 10am - 5pm, or call us at the winery to arrange delivery. ⁣

We are thrilled to have recently welcomed Mel to our team as our new Cellar Door Manager! Joining us all the way from Sydney, Mel previously worked in the dairy industry, until she realised wine is more fun than milk! After spending several years exploring and blogging about wine, Mel decided to jump in head first and spent five years working and training in wineries in Barossa (SA), Marlborough (NZ), Rioja (Spain) and Sonoma Valley (USA). She then worked as a Wine Ambassador in Canada and marketing in Sydney before heading back home to Victoria. Be sure to call into Cellar Door and enjoy a tasting with Mel and experience her passion for wine for yourself. ⁣⁣

“Be bold, be brave, show your true colours”.⁣ ⁣
Here, one of Rob’s favourite sayings has been translated into liquid. Fruit driven and instantly likeable, our True Colours range is the perfect introduction to Rob Dolan Wines. An honest and perfect reflection of the man and the land, these quaffable wines are made to be enjoyed today - either on their own, or with a great meal. ⁣⁣

@chateauyeringhotel has history as the social centre of the Yarra Valley; a reputation established over 150 years but earned consistently in the last 25. History provides great story telling opportunities and this event brings two local favourites together, on Thursday the 27th of February, for you to experience a memorable evening of wine and stories. ⁣

With the historic Eleonore’s restaurant as the venue and our Signature Series range as the conversation focal point, settle in for an evening of interaction during dinner courses with perfectly paired wines and the bold, generous and exceedingly likeable Rob Dolan. ⁣

We’re excited to announce a new addition to our Cellar Door grazing menu! Alongside our usual favourites, our fridge is now stocked with @yvdairy Persian Feta with thyme and garlic. Our team kindly volunteered their time to create our preferred serving suggestion which is to spread a generous amount of feta over a @denchbaker’s sourdough baguette, add a drizzle of the marinating oil straight from the jar and enjoy with a glass of perfectly chilled Black Label Blanc de Blanc. You’re welcome! ⁣⁣

For winemaker and Dolan prodigy Ben Dolan, 2019 was a huge year and one we’re sure he won’t forget anytime soon. Undertaking three vintages across three continents in one year is no easy feat. It is Ben’s fierce passion for winemaking (particularly Pinot Noir) that saw him take on 2019 vintages in the Hunter Valley (NSW, Australia), Central Otago (New Zealand) and Burgundy (France). As much as we love seeing our team members grow and accomplish their goals we’re extremely excited to have Ben’s smiley face back home and can’t wait to see what’s in his new bag of tricks for Vintage 2020! ⁣

Head to the link in our bio to read more about his adventures. ⁣
