Bushmere Estate Winery
This is the relaxing break you’ve been looking forward to your entire trip! Just over two hours south of the motel down the 35, at Bushmere Estate Winery you’ll find an almost magical scenery filled with 17 hectares of chardonnay grapes with a smattering of Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Montepulciano and Sangrovese grapes. The Bushmere Estate Winery is 100 percent family-owned and operated by David and Shona Egan. The hospitality you’ll find here is second-to-none. They have been growing grapes for over 40 years which have been used in the production of amazing world-class wines. Their logo embodies the three elements essential to a thriving vineyard; earth, water, and sun. At The Bushmere Estate Winery Bond Room Café, your taste buds will be rewarded with selections from their ever-changing lunch menu, paired with the perfect wine from their estate. During the summer months, you may even be privileged to enjoy some live background music. Contact the winery for their entertainment schedule. It’s a perfect venue for that laid-back afternoon you’ve wanted to enjoy while on holiday. You may also choose to visit their tasting room where you’ll be presented with more than a few tastings from their vintage, accompanied by thoughtfully selected morsels to heighten your experience. This experience has been enjoyed by everyday folk and connoisseurs alike! Groups are welcome, but due to private events which may be going on, advance booking is a must. While there, visit with your hosts as they share their wine expertise, funny stories, and much, much more! After your experience, you will be given the opportunity to purchase your favorite vintage to relive this experience later on.
