Ellender Estate wines are created with minimal intervention reflecting characters provided by nature and entrusted to their care and respect. Viticulturist and Winemaker, Graham Ellender, produces a range of quality wines from Sparkling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to Pinot Gris, Pinot Rose and Pinot Noir; to reflect the Estate's unique character and his individual style.

A wood-fired oven is the focus of the food presented at L'Osteria at Ellender Estate and reflects the Swiss-Italian heritage of the area. During weekends relax with a glass of wine and enjoy a selection of wood-fired pizzas, or a regional platter with bread baked in the wood-fired oven.

Picnic beside the lake (perfect spot for an engagement proposal) or in the olive grove. Ideal as a romantic day for couples or enjoy a gourmet picnic hamper with friends or family.

The picturesque scenery and intimate surrounds are the perfect setting for your next function; weddings, celebrations, parties, corporate retreats and small conferences in the Loddon Room. Book for a pizza-making class or discover the secrets of wine in "Discover your Wine Senses".

Come and visit, meet Red and Nelle (the friendly chocolate labradors), spend some time with them and share their story.

"Turn off at the beautiful little village of Glenlyon, near Daylesford, and drive a few kilometres through the picturesque hills to find Ellender Estate. It's a secluded vineyard and a welcoming one with regional platters available, a wood-fired oven, and an outdoor pavilion overlooking vineyard, dams and hillsides. Wine quality is very good." Ralph Kyte-Powell
