Into Northburn Station

This is the driveway into Northburn Station, near Cromwell.

We turned up just before lunch. The Station was still covered in mist like a big wad of cotton wool.

We warmed ourselves up by the fire and had a look around. The staff seemed surprised to see us emerge from the mist but were happy to tell us about the building and history of the station.

We had plenty of time, so decided to try the wine and food match for $12 each.
They had four canapes that were specifically matched to wines from the station. Altogether we tried six wines, which were all very nice! I was surprised by the quality of the food and we ended up buying a great bottle of pinot noir.

Northburn Station is a 13,500 hectare high country merino sheep station that has diversified the traditional grazing operation to include a vineyard and winery restaurant.  The Shed Cellar Door and Restaurant is open 7 days a week from 10.30am - 4.30pm for wine and food tastings and lunch.  Northburn is surrounded by spectacular mountains, overlooks the picturesque Lake Dunstan.
