Vineyard Walking Trail

Allow 30-35 minutes at a leisurely pace (2km)

This self-guided walking trail has been designed to showcase the unique attributes of our vineyard park, which is set in a volcanic crater that is more than 20,000 years old. Simply follow our six ‘point of interest’ trail markers which will start from outside the Cellar Door (see map inside). 

At the completion of your walk sit back and relax in the Vineyard Café with a glass of our award-winning wine over lunch or visit the Cellar Door to take a bottle of wine home. 

Please be aware that Villa Maria is a working winery. Machinery may be operating around the grounds. Children should be supervised at all times. 

Share a platter or have lunch at our café
