This itinerary can be enjoyed as an overnight stay or shortened to a day trip.
Kick off the morning with a pastry and coffee from the Lancefield Bakery, then head off on your wine tasting adventure in the country (if the Lancefield Farmers Markets are on when you’re visiting make sure to drop by).
Drive through rolling farmland dotted with chilled out cows and happy sheep to arrive at your first cellar door tasting at Parkside Winery Estate*
Their inviting cellar door is housed inside a lovingly restored Clydesdale horse stable, adjacent to the historical Parkside homestead circa 1890,
On arrival, you will be welcomed by owners and winemakers Darryl and Jenny Ward. All the wines you can taste at Parkside are grown, handpicked and vinified on the property using minimal intervention and traditional techniques.
Parkside is also a working farm so you can include in your visit a chat to the resident sheep and cows and feed carrots to the horses that roam in the paddocks around the Cellar Door.
Check the Autumn Festival what’s on for their fun Acoustic Pizza & Live Music events on weekends.
Parkside Winery: From 11.30am weekends and public holidays. Closed over winter. Replace with Cleveland Winery if closed (open weekends from 11am).
Tip: If you enjoy bike riding, consider cycling less than 5km from the village of Lancefield to Parkside. You can then loop your way back to Lancefield via Curly Flat Vineyard.
