About Yering Station

Yering Station is Victoria's first vineyard, and located in the 'heart' of the Yarra Valley only one hour’s drive from Melbourne. Originally planted in 1838, the historical wine estate was purchased by the Rathbone family in 1996, marking the beginning of a new era with the construction of a state-of-the-art winery and award-winning wine tourism destination. Today, Yering Station remains true to its heritage as a family-owned and operated winery dedicated to producing wines of quality and distinction.

The property offers an unforgettable wine and food experience with breathtaking views, superb architecture and beautifully kept gardens. Yering Station’s Wine Bar and Restaurant is set within a sophisticated stone and glass building originally designed by architect Robert Conti. The spectacular floor to ceiling glass windows perfectly frame the Yarra Ranges as an impressive backdrop.
