Rochford Winery (880 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream, Yarra Valley)
I love eating at wineries. The food is always presented so beautifully, and it is rare that it is not of the highest quality as well. I was extremely excited to be visiting the Yarra Valley, and excited to sit down for a meal at one of it’s most established wineries. Rochford was especially cute; with it’s Cellar Door and gift shop right as you walk in, and then a winding stair case leading up to a viewing gallery which literally gives you a three-sixty degree view of your surroundings. There was nothing on the day that we were there, but Rochford frequently plays host to a number of winery concerts and festivals – and it had a great set-up for it. The food was as delicious as I’d hoped; all of the elements intricately arranged on the plate for maximum presentation points as well.
