Eating in the Hepburn Shire
Its not just about good food and wine in the Hepburn Shire. We love a great story behind the produce. Speak to anyone serving or selling this regions produce and they will tell you a story bathed in history, serendipity and good old fashioned hard work.
From casual dining in lovely local cafes to fancy affairs in historic hotels, you can have your cake and eat it too. Fish and chips by a lake, picnics in gardens or an eight course degustation in a private dining room, you can experience it all in the Hepburn Shire
Cosmopolitan, charming and full of local produce, not to mention the local identities that produce and serve the food
Here at Daylesford Cider we produce a range of multi-award winning ciders made using the 17 varieties of English-heritage listed cider apples we grow organically on the farm just outside Daylesford. The styles of cider range from traditional ‘still’ with an almost bone-dry palate, through to lightly carbonated and sweeter ones.
It only seems fitting that our ciders are sold from an English style Tavern cellar door. The Tavern offers a cosy setting in Winter and in Summer people can kick back in the courtyard and landscaped gardens and enjoy the lawn games.
The cellar door is open 7 days a week serving our range of ciders to drink in or take home, as well as local and regional beers, wines & soft drinks. The kitchen is open for lunch Friday-Monday, offering a modest menu to accompany a cider or two.
We host live music, private parties, weddings, food events and more, so please get in touch to see how we can help. A Cider Makers Tour can be arranged with notice. See you soon, Cheers!

In 2013 Jen & Owen Latta established WINE AND THE COUNTRY,
a wine shop & bar in Daylesford showcasing little known and lo-fi wine producers. Four years later and it's time to add to the wine offering by opening a delicatessen, sandwich & coffee bar right next door.
Dos is a Spanish inspired delicatessen stocking some of the regions's & the World's best cheese and smallgoods producers.
Drawing on their too-short time in Grenada, Owen & Jen wanted to recreate their favourite aspects of their trip and open small delicatessen showcasing the regions and the worlds best cheeses, where you can also get simple toasties & baguettes using only the most authentic ingredients. Quality bread, meats & cheeses in the humble baguette, panini or sourdough toastie.
+ a variety of coffee & soft drink offerings for sit in or takeaway.
