We take bookings for private tastings in our Alpha Crucis room. Small group bookings in the wine bar and on the deck can also be catered for.

We don’t take bookings for the Chalk Hill Collective site (Chalk Hill, Never Never Distilling Co and VPO). Entry is on a first-come-first-served basis. Having said that, we are a large venue licensed for 500 people, so the chances of getting a table for your group on the day are good! And arriving earlier in the day will improve your chances even further.

Group sizes

Large groups are welcome, subject to visitor numbers on the day. We recommend arriving early on weekends to secure a table or spot on the lawn.


We offer a number of different tasting options to suit your mood and palate.

In the Wine Bar, our Chalk Hill range is available to purchase by the glass or bottle. We also offer paid tastings of these wines, as well as paired tastings with cheese or chocolates. These wines can also be purchased to takeaway.

In our Alpha Crucis Tasting Lounge, you can experience a flight of our finest wines or enjoy a guided tasting of our Alpha Crucis Winemakers Series Shiraz. Bookings are essential for these exclusive experiences.


At present, we offer cheese platters from Monday to Friday. On the weekends we have grazing platters, arancini balls and hot chips, thanks to our friends at Vera Pizza Oztalia (VPO). From 20 March, VPO will offer their full menu of Italian street food and will be open six days a week.


We don’t allow BYO food or drinks.


Large group functions can be catered for outside of normal trading hours only. Please email to find out more.


Whilst we think the Chalk Hill Collective site would be amazing for weddings, we are not taking bookings at this time.

Hens & bucks parties

You are welcome to celebrate here as long as you are respectful to everyone else on site. We reserve the right to refuse entry or remove people who don’t follow this guideline.

Picnic rugs

We have picnic rugs and tasting sets available for your use. However, if you have a favourite rug feel free to bring it along!


Given we have many guests sitting/lying on picnic rugs and on low seating, please leave your dog at home if you think they may disrupt another guest’s experience. If you trust you dog in this setting, then we trust you. Dogs will need to remain on a leash and of course be cleaned up after!
