New Children's Playground at Flyfaire

You might have seen late last year that we had recently begun construction of our new playground (think Les and Jarryd with the High-Vis gear on the playground). The great news is that we have officially finished our newest addition to Flyfaire and it has been very popular with visiting families.

Having a 'Kid Friendly Winery' is true to our mission of having a great cellar door experience that enhances the local community and what better way than to ensure all ages are entertained when they visit Flyfaire!

For visiting families, we also offer inside the Cellar Door, we offer a baby toy box and also a children's menu to ensure all ages can enjoy something to eat or drink when visiting. Don't forget the very important problems that have been solved with pram access all on one level, baby changing facilities, choice of a quiet room or family area for breast feeding, and children's high chairs.

New Conference Room Facilities and Private Dining Area

We're proud to now offer the newest feature at our Cellar Door - a private Conference Room for corporate and private events. 

The private conference room is not only great for corporate events, but also for private events such as small birthday parties, celebrations, Christmas functions, or even private dinners. These events, when booked in advance, offer a custom menu experience that is tailored to the customer's needs. The room can host between 8-10 people comfortably. Read more.

Boutique Winemakers of Australia Wine Competition

Flyfaire has entered two vintages in this year's Boutique Wine Awards for which there is just 25 days to go. The wine show was established in 1996 by the Association of Australian Boutique Winemakers in order to give the boutique winemakers the opportunity to win trophies and medals even if they have small quantities of the wine available.

Flyfaire definitely fits the bill as we produce a small quantity of wine compared to larger vineyards. The maximum tonnage for entrants is 250 tons per vineyard; Flyfaire produces in the range of 5-10 tons depending on the year and the season. Vineyards must also be independently owned; Flyfaire is family owned.

There are 17 classes that wines can be entered into, with the competition not specifically judged on vintage or price points. Flyfaire has entered our 2014 Flyfaire Riesling and our 2014 Flyfaire Merlot; both of which are popular with our customers at our cellar door. 

Wish us luck for this year's competition and don't forget to leave comments in the section below if you have any questions - we love to hear your feedback!
