2020 will be a momentous year for Boat O’Craigo. We have some very exciting news to share with our beloved fans and supporters!
Our popularity has been steadily increasing over the last 5 years and space has become a little tight with the cellar door often booked to capacity. The time has come for a major redevelopment of our humble cellar door at Healesville. After 3.5 years of planning, we are pleased to announce that we now have our green light from Yarra Ranges council with works to commence around the middle of this year.
This is a major project which will include the development of an additional 80-100 seat dining and function space, brand new kitchen and toilet facilities plus extension of our outdoor deck space and car parking areas. This new and improved cellar door will increase our capacity and will provide a more functional space and an even more amazing cellar door experience. The design makes use of natural stone, timber and appropriate building materials to be in harmony with our surrounding environment including extensive use of floor to ceiling glass to capture those incredible views overlooking our tranquil vineyard and the Black Spur Ranges. With this space, we will also have the ability to host and conduct wine education, tourism plus general functions and events both for the visiting public and for our loyal wine club members.
If all goes to plan, we aim to open the doors to the new cellar door around the middle of 2021. Until then, it’s business as per usual in our existing cellar door so come and enjoy our amazing wines and delicious food in a tranquil setting while enjoying the warm and friendly hospitality we have become renown for.
