More than a winery
Whilst wine is at the heart of our business, we are in a continual process of extending the services, facilities and activities at Basils Farm.
Our cellar door offers wine tastings and sales of the Basils Farm range of wines. Visitors also have the opportunity to purchase local olive oil and house made preserves and relishes (subject to availability). The outdoor seating area provides the perfect location to kick off your next celebration or to enjoy a quiet drink with friends, overlooking the vineyards.
Basils Farmhouse style Café provides seating for 45 and the spacious Pavilion seats 100. A fresco dining under umbrellas is also available throughout the milder months on the lawned area. All dining areas provide stunning vistas over landscaped gardens and the protected wetlands of Swan Bay, across to Queenscliff. Even the kids can have fun in our large sandpit and visiting the farm animals.
Adopting sustainable farming practices are a significant part of the vision for the property. In addition to growing a pesticide-free, edible kitchen garden, the farm also has a flourishing market garden and established fruit trees. Farm animals have also been introduced including chickens, “Baby Doll” sheep and llamas.
Sustainability, local producers, seasonal produce and artisan wine provide the foundation for educational workshops, wine and food events and dinners, which are held regularly throughout the year. We also offer corporate and private group wine tastings, which can be tailored to suit any requirement.
Basils is also the perfect location for special events and celebrations. Basils Farmhouse, Pavilion and grounds can cater for weddings, parties, corporate events and dinners for up to 120 guests.
