Cruise through the countryside to Darraweit Valley

Nominate your designated driver, book accommodation and taste our region’s very own craft beer and cider in venues bursting with character, history and autumn colour.

Set out on a scenic drive through the countryside and farmlands of Darraweit Guim for a cider tasting at Darraweit Valley Cider.

Orchardist Marc Serafino is a former head chef with a passion for creating new flavours. And DV Cider have flipped cider making psychology on its head by focusing on the flavours first.

Inspired by the way craft beer is made, they’ve experimented with real ingredients like hops, molasses, and even coffee. The result is that their unique ciders have been recognised with a bunch of accolades and positive reviews.

Take a swig of DV Cider and you’ll discover a new depth of character to cider that you’ve never experienced before. Pair it with a local tasting platter at their distillery door. Plus keep an eye out for live music gigs on weekends!
