Rising from the rustic, weather-beaten remnants of a barn left idle for generations, Stones of the Yarra Valley has emerged as the region’s premier food and wine destination.

With uninterrupted views across vines to the blue-tinged Great Divide, Stones of the Yarra Valley is located on one of the most picturesque and historic properties in the Yarra Valley, combining two superb restaurants – The Barn and The Stables at Stones – with a stunning, rough-rendered Chapel and Dairy nestled under century-old oak trees.

The Barn, the first of the Stones' superb restaurants, allows floor-to-ceiling views over 200 acres of vineyards out to the Great Dividing Range. Forming the estate's main dining room, The Barn is one of the Yarra Valley's most popular destinations for relaxed weekend lunches, wedding celebrations, intimate concerts and superb private events.

The Stables, the estate's second restaurant, is one of the Yarra Valley's most celebrated food and wine destinations. Soaring red-brick walls and rough-hewn timbers provide a glimpse into the building's history as the stablehand quarters of a bustling farming community called Castellaville.

After a remarkable conversion, The Stables now operate as an intimate restaurant space under the helm of Executive Chef Hugh Davison. Presenting a regional tasting menu on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and a shared plate lunch on Saturdays and Sundays, Davison’s menus are crafted from scratch each week based on the seasonality and availability of local produce.

Stones of the Yarra Valley's sister property, Meletos, comprises a regional café, an intimate events space and 23-room boutique guesthouse, providing exquisite and convenient wedding and event accommodation.

With its walled gardens, rows of crabapple trees and raised vegetable beds, Meletos has taken an abandoned collection of century-old farm buildings and created something truly extraordinary. Sharing the superb precinct are the Napoleone Brewers, a family-owned microbrewery producing beautiful hand-crafted ales on-site.

Weddings hosted at Stones provide a truly unforgettable experience. With the estate's four main venues - The Chapel, The Dairy, The Barn and The Stables - linked by winding, European-inspired paths, your wedding can be simplified and contained to the Stones property. With soaring ceilings, stained-glass windows and sweeping views across acres of vines, The Chapel is truly one of a kind. With seating on hand-crafted timber pews under a rustic chandelier, the Stones Chapel encompasses all of the romance, elegance, and solitude of a rural place-of-worship. Ever had time to fill in between a wedding ceremony and reception? At Stones of the Yarra Valley this period just adds to the magic of the day, with guests invited to enjoy drinks and canapés in The Dairy, located between the Stones Chapel and Barn.
A short stroll from the Chapel past elm trees and fountains, a reception in the historic Stones Barn can accommodate up to 186 guests. Sumptuous menus and wine lists along with unforgettable entertainment – all combined with spectacular views from every seat. The Stones' secondary reception venue is The Stables. With its vintage fittings, rough-hewn timbers, and century-old brickwork, The Stables at Stones is one of the Yarra Valley’s most iconic heritage venues, able to accommodate 40 to 63 guests. These four venues also provide the perfect location for private events, from spectacular winemaker dinners and product launches to milestone birthdays, film shoots and unforgettable corporate events. Stones of the Yarra Valley is the region’s premier functions and events venue.
