Ladies Day Out 2018 raises $7000 for our Spoil Me Day Charity

Posted: December 12, 2018 Category: Latest News Comment: 0

On Saturday December 8, we hosted our 10th annual Ladies Day Out event which has raised over $50000 since it began. This is a favourite event in the Feathertop calendar. It not only brings around 145 women together for a day full of food, wine, love, laughter and dancing it raises much needed funds for our charity.  We are very excited to announce that this year we have raised $7000. 

The money raised enables us to put on our “Spoil Me Day” pampering day for local women on their cancer journey. We provide a four course lunch with wines, treatments and gift bags and recruit a support team of masseuses, hairdressers, speakers and make-up artists to pamper the ladies at the completion of their complimentary lunch and drinks. This day is completely free of charge for the ladies and their carers. 

We were extremely proud of Kel and Janelle's daughter Zara, who cut off 40cms of her hair to donate it to the @HairwithHeart charity for wigs. She has currently raised almost $2000, over a $1000 of that was from Ladies Day Out! What an amazing young lady and group of women you are in supporting her. Her campaign is still open, if you would like to support Zara, please click here.

A huge thank you to the following sponsors who donated items for our auction. Please support them! Bright Beauty Boutique, Gamze Smokehouse, Leigh Enever Jewellery, Reed and Co Distillery
Cheeky Bits Boutique, Vegitation Mt Beauty, Ringer Reef, Politini Wines, Bright Brewery, Porepunkah Pub, North East Massage.

To see some photos of the event, please visit our Facebook page here.

This event always sells out months in advance, so start geting your girlfriends organised now for Ladies Day Out 2019 on Saturday December 7, 2019.  Book now!

Posted: November 16, 2018 Category: Latest News Comment: 0

Kel FianoThe smile says it all!

After 30 years our 2017 Fiano has not only been awarded gold at the Rutherglen Wine Show,  but it was also awarded the JCBrown Trophy for ‘The BEST Australian dry white wine from grapes grown in North East Victoria’!

To add to this medal tally, the 2017 Fiano won gold and the 2016 Friulano won Silver at the Alternate Varieties Wineshow this month. This was a great result for the Alpine Valleys wine region where a total of 5 gold medals were awarded - that's 10% of the total entries!

And in the September/October 2018 edition of WineState Magazine, the Fiano received 4 stars.

A big congratulations to our winemaking duo Kel Boynton and Nick Toy!

Feathertop’s Alfresco Dining Restaurant to rebrand as Stone & Barrel, refresh dining concepts

Posted: September 30, 2018 Category: Latest News Comment: 0

Feathertop Winery in Porepunkah is rebranding and relaunching its restaurant.

The winery’s restaurant which features a Tuscan style outdoor terrace overlooking Mount Buffalo, said it will revamp and rename Feathertop Alfresco Dining Restaurant as Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop – in a nod to the handcrafted stone work featured on the estate by owner and chief winemaker Kel Boynton.

Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop will relaunch on Friday 12th October.

For 10 years now Feathertop has been the pioneer of the “moveable restaurant” concept, offering the ultimate in outdoor fine dining experiences for locals and visitors to North East Victoria. The newly named Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop will continue to be set outside on the Stone Terrace on all good weather days, where guests can sit back and enjoy their lunch under the lush vine leaf canopy framed by antique timbers and mountain views. During the cooler months, the restaurant is set in the nostalgic warmth of the Barrel Room, where you can dine amongst towering wine barrels and still enjoy the misty mountain vistas.

Head Chef Simon Buckley and Sous Chef Robert Clarkson will continue to lead the culinary operations. They have created a new look menu for spring which can be enjoyed as a sharing style feast amongst friends if desired, perfect for the long summer days ahead. The menu will continue to feature dishes sourced from local Alpine Valleys produce and the estate kitchen garden and with a contemporary take on the classics.

In addition to the refreshed menu, the wine list will expand to include specialty cocktails including gin and tonic featuring Reed & Co’s Remedy Gin, apple cider by Wandiligong’s Alpine Cider, craft beer by Blizzard Brewing Company Dinner Plain and a rotating selection of wines from different wine regions,

“At Feathertop we stick to the principle of seasonal, local, Australian produce and we couldn’t be more thrilled to relaunch the restaurant with a new look menu that draws on Rob’s (ex Simones of Bright) Italian cooking background and my French trained techniques. Enjoying a leisurely lunch experience out on the Stone Terrace has created many special memories for our guests and wine club members over the years and together with our team we are excited about the opportunity to elevate these offerings on our menu.” said Simon.

Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop is open for lunch Friday to Sunday 12-3pm with extended trading days during school and public holidays. You can order off the menu a la carte style or for great value, try their two or three course specials matched to wines. Bookings are recommended and essential during peak times. Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop is also available for private functions and degustation experiences.  

The Feathertop Providore, the winery’s relaxed, DIY grazing platter picnic option, is also available from the cellar door stocking a constantly changing range of artisan meats, cheeses, dips, fresh baguettes. Open during cellar door hours 11am-5pm Friday-Sunday.
