Looking for a gem to visit on your next Sunday (or weekday) drive? Look no further! Recruit your bae, jump in your car and road trip to the stunning Taltarni Vineyard. This spot will woo your heart. Guaranteed.
Located 2.5 hours out of Melbourne, the vineyard is nestled in the much-loved Pyrenees wine region. The Insta-worthy spot is surrounded by rolling hills, rows and rows of grapevines and—of course—that fresh country air. Ah, bliss.
Showcasing rustic elegance, Taltarni is home to a vineyard, winery and cellar door. The latter is the perfect spot to relax (wine in hand, obvs), take in the fresh country air and serene surroundings. The space is a fave for personalised wine tastings as well as wedding ceremonies and intimate dinner parties.
Established in 1969, Taltarni has stood the test of time. Owner John Goelet searched far and wide for a site comparable to the famous vineyards of Bordeaux before stumbling upon Taltarni. Rich soils + warm days + cool nights = the perfect trifecta.
They started with Bordeux varieties (cab sauv and merlot) before extending to sauv blanc, chardonnay, shiraz and pinot noir. White, red or sparkling, they do it all…and they do it well!
Better yet, Taltarni keeps the beautiful surrounds top of mind when producing the wines. They’re all about sustainability with countless initiatives including using solar power, applying natural products (such as seaweed) to the soil and only using rainwater for production and warehousing.
They even have an insectarium—aka more than 2000 native plants that provide pollen and nectar to insects. The good bugs eat the bad bugs and voilà…they’ve decreased the use of pesticides and chemicals. Genius!
The result? Divine, award-winning wines so impressive, you’ll be wishing you could get them delivered to your door. Well, wait no more! Taltarni makes your wine dreams come true with their wine club.
Yep, the aptly named Cellar Key Club is the easiest way to get your lips on their beautiful wines with free shipping to your doorstep. There are no sign-up fees, memberships or contracts—just damn good wines at damn good prices. Discover the packages for yourself here.
One thing’s for certain: Taltarni goes over and above to ensure every drop is made with love. Discover the dreamy vineyard for yourself or get the beautiful wines delivered. This is the Pyrenees at its finest.
