Fossil Ridge Boutique Vineyard & Cafe represents the culmination of a family project initiated in 1998. Extensive landscaping enhanced the vineyard environment and also transformed a low lying wetland area on the site into a unique, attractive, sheltered Cellar Door and Café setting featuring ponds and wildlife.
The intensively managed vineyard derives its name from Monotis fossils found in its soils. It is north facing and enjoys a temperate climate that has produced wines of consistent award winning quality with a varietal range including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir (including Rosé), Gewürztraminer and Riesling, all of which are handpicked.
Olives and macadamias are also grown on site and feature in the Café menu.
Open for wine tasting and café lunches including platters, mid-November through to March. Bookings most welcome.
