Set amongst the picturesque Pentland Hills, St Anne’s Winery in Myrniong is located only 50 minutes from the heart of Melbourne. And yet, as you arrive at this unique and beautiful location you immediately feel as if you’ve a million miles away from the city.
This stunning property contains over five event spaces, including two large reception centers the Willows and Vines, The Copperage, Barrel Boom and Port Cellar, not to mention the acres of vineyards. The beautiful bluestone walls are made from the remains from the old Ballarat Jail and heritage buildings.
One of our favorite spaces at St Anne’s is the Port Cellar. A large iron gate provides the entrance to the unique space, opening to a 10meter long pathway with large port barrels on either side – the perfect spot for a post-reception drinks function, or a long dining table setting.
We loved working in this space. Victoria Whitelaw Florists created timeless floral fishbowls with breathtaking orchids on each napkin setting. The beautiful centerpieces were full of rich, warm autumn colors that enhanced the rustic wooden finishes, and worked perfectly with the raw timber beams. The ambience in the space is so warm you can feel it - with the flicker of candlelight bouncing off the wine barrels lining either side of the space, you’re in the perfect spot for a magical dining experience
