Sustainability and recycling are the current buzz words. Everyone is 'into it' and taking it seriously: households, farms and businesses… children in school. We all want to take a 'clean and green approach' to everything we do, and to leave our farms, our beaches, our country in a better state than we found it.

As part of the 2015 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Little Veggie Patch and BGV have joined forces to offer you this fun and educational composting workshop, with lunch and wines.

A Resounding Success.

Sometimes the planets do align, and everything you hoped for falls in to place.

Last Sunday Rosa Mitchell from Rosa’s Kitchen in Melbourne came up to our newly opened cellar door and entertainment area and a delicious four-course lunch for friends and family.


Rosa and I have finalised our menu, and it’s looking delicious. Everything for our lunch will be sourced from the farm, or from specialist local producers. We plan to use wild nettles and fennel, local olives and olive oil, fresh rabbit and lamb, plus winter greens, quinces, rhubarb and oranges from the farm garden. Amongst the wines served will be our new Spring releases: Prosecco, Saignée, Sparkling Roussanne and Primitivo, and we’ll finish with our new Late Harvest Viognier.


I can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting to host a special lunch at the vineyard for family and friends of Box Grove, using my wines and produce either grown on the farm or sourced locally. I have been wanting to work with a chef I admire, and who uses my wines regularly. Someone who understands what I am doing in the vineyard and who cooks with the same passion and love as I feel for my vineyard…

But they are all my little babies, you put a year in working in the vineyard to get them to harvest, and then at vintage you 'give birth'…
