Corang Estate has expanded its cellar door operations in Tarago to become Corang Estate Cellar Door & Pantry, opening officially with a wine and food evening on 30 March.
For multi-award-winning winery duo Jill & Michael Bynon, the addition of a range of gourmet foods was the perfect way to grow their cellar door business when more space became available to them, space that they had shared with an arts and crafts shop when they first opened mid-last year.
Jill Bynon explained, “We’ve attended farmers markets in the Southern Tablelands and Shoalhaven for many years, and we were well connected to the local food scene. We’re delighted to now open the wine and food business we have always dreamed of.”
In addition to their Corang Estate wines, their premises in Tarago now stocks a range of local and regional foods including honeys, sauces, cheeses, cured meats, handmade pasta & flatbreads, truffle products, native herbs and spices, olive oils and more. Jill and Michael know many of the producers personally, and as keen foodies they are happy to make serving recommendations and wine pairing suggestions too!
Michael Bynon added, “The opportunity also exists for customers to build their own picnic to enjoy with a glass of wine or a guided wine tasting. They can select for example a cheese, pack of ham, a dip and a jar of olives. We’ll provide a cheese board, knife and even a pair of scissors to help open the packs.”
The cellar door & pantry is conveniently located at the crossroads in the centre of Tarago, with passing traffic from Canberra to Jervis Bay and Goulburn to Braidwood, giving travellers the ideal opportunity to stop for a break, pick up some top-quality produce, and continue their journey.
Corang Estate wines are made in Murrumbateman and husband and wife team, Michael & Jill work with several top growers in the premium cool climate regions of Southern NSW as well as producing wines from their own estate-grown fruit from their vineyard in Nerriga.
Corang Estate wines are also available online, and in key on and off-premise outlets in Southern NSW.
