Holmesglen at Eildon
Conferences. Functions. Events. A multi award winning venue in Eildon.
Firstly, the wine region is called the Upper Goulburn Wine region and produces many fine award-winning wines.
Secondly did you know that 83% of Australia’s Trout is from our region? Our traditional industries such as beef cattle and sheep are a strength too but there is so much more to our region as far as food producers go.
Capers, pork, free range eggs, organic vegetables, garlic, stone fruit, honey, olives, truffles, grapes, berries of all sorts, snails, cheese, sourdough bread, preserves and jams.
Turf, seed production and plant nurseries are here as well.
There are two producer groups in the Murrindindi Shire (Murrindindi Food and Wine Inc and Murrindindi Winemakers). Surrounding Mansfield there is the Upper Goulburn Winemakers and Mansfield Producers.
Many of their members are featured and or are a part of the local farmers markets and regular markets held each month in the towns of Mansfield, Bonnie Doon, Yea, Alexandra, Taggerty and Yarck.
Specialty shops, local pubs and inns and produce stores also feature local produce whether on their menus, wine lists and or via a retail section of their stores. Our local supermarkets are also keen supporters of our producers and local wines. Just ask to be shown the local produce and or wine.
Underpinning our food and wine industry are several local private gardeners whose produce makes it way to the local food op shop tables.
So, plenty of ways to connect with our local producers.
