‘TASTINGS Cellar Door & Food’, is conveniently located at street level at the front of the venue.
Daylesford/Macedon region boasts some of the finest boutique wineries, delightful farm gates and provenders in Australia.
The concept for a hub which affords visitors the opportunity to sample some of the region’s finest wines and produce, all under one roof came with the strong support of Daylesford Macedon Produce, local winemakers and producers.
The name of the hub, ‘TASTINGS’ acknowledges that it is a showcase of the best produce the region has to offer. Guests, visitors and locals will have the opportunity to sample exceptional wines from various producers and vintages from the region. Our cellar door, features local wines from Cleveland Estate from our own vineyard , and many other award wining/ boutique wines and liquor including, Rowanston on the Track, Hesket Estate, Knights Granite Hills, and Herbal Lore. We also stock wines from our sister property Balgownie Estate from Bendigo and the Yarra Valley.
The outlet provides a combination of a relaxing cellar door for wine tasting, and a casual dining experience, where customers can chill out and enjoy our wood fired pizza, local cheese plates, charcuterie and tasting platters, as well as other local delights. Or they can indulge with a gourmet High Tea or dinner in our Heritage restaurant.
Groups are offered a special wine and lunch package seven days a week.
Visitors can taste the local produce while taking in the serenity of the beautiful gardens, and enjoy the gorgeous natural beauty surrounding Bellinzona. In cooler months, visitors have the option to lounge indoor with the open fire.
TASTINGS serve local Moto Bean specialty coffee and Slow tea
Visitors can also pick up local produce such as Des O’Tooles Honey, Pud Chocolates, Moto Bean coffee, Slow Tea and other delightful local produce sourced by Daylesford Hamper Company.
Bellinzona is an established hotel rich in history that dates back to the 1800s.

Attracting visitors from Melbourne, inter-state and overseas, TASTINGS at Bellinzona is perfectly located. Daylesford and Hepburn Springs is one of the top Victorian tourist destinations, and our regional wine and food hub located within Bellinzona, serves as a great platform to promote and showcase some of the region’s best smaller boutique producers.
