The winding pathway to the remote Yarrawa Estate is not an easy one to follow, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised as the path opens to this lakeside vineyard. If the golden retrievers and frolicking children remind you of a visit to your family country home, well, it should — the cellar door is quite literally set in the Foster family dining room, where strangers momentarily become relatives. Apart from the incredible wine, they also offer a range of nuts, jams and pickles made from homegrown produce. Be sure to taste their homemade walnut liquor wine, a combination of both passions.

Yarrawa Estate was established in 1998 by Mark and Sue Foster. Over the following two years a diverse range of crops was planted including wine and table grapes, walnuts, pecans, macadamias, citrus, Chinese raisin trees, avocado and kiwi fruit, as well as 2.5ha of verdelho, chardonnay, chambourcin, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. . The first wine vintage was released in 2002 and the Cellar Door opened for business.
The Cellar Door offers wine tastings with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. There are homemade preserves and nuts available for purchase. Travel along the Upper Kangaroo River Road for approximately 11 kilometres to find the Estate nestled amongst the rugged sandstone escarpments for the temperate climate and rich volcanic soil which provides an ideal environment for viticulture. The hillside vineyard has views across Kangaroo Valley and down to the Kangaroo River directly below.
