LynneVale Estate

LynneVale Estate is situated in the geographical heart of Victoria at Mandurang. An area known for producing fine wines, they boast one of the best views in Bendigo.

The vines were planted in the flood plain of Sheepwash Creek in 1999. After producing its first vintage in 2002 the 2003 LynneVale Estate Cabernet Shiraz won the first of many gold medals the winery would receive. Owners, Glenn and Hilary Baldock took over the property in 2010. The pair renovated the cellar door, restaurant and bed and breakfast, ensuring the current incarnation of LynneVale Estate is as comfortable as it is stunning.

The cellar door and restaurant both feature indoor and outdoor sitting areas surrounded by native gardens and water features overlooking the picturesque vineyard and surrounding Mandurang Valley. Despite being only a seven minute drive from the centre of Bendigo, bed and breakfast guests can still enjoy rural tranquillity as they wake up to spectacular sunrises over the vines and the sounds of native birds.

LynneVale Estate’s four and a half star accommodation includes three ensuite bedrooms with queen size beds and private access to a paved veranda with heated spa and outdoor dining facilities. Weekend packages are available with all meals and hosted tours of local wineries included.

Their restaurant offers a laid-back atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Boasting contemporary Australian cuisine with Asian influences, using only
simple, fresh and seasonal produce, LynneVale Estate cooks for everyone the same way they cook for family and friends. Almost everything is made from scratch.

LynneVale Estate is also the operator of Bendigo Winery Tours which provides tailored private guided tours of the Bendigo wine region to individuals and groups. They will take you to meet local winegrowers from both popular and lesser known wineries to taste their award winning wines.
