Jayden Ong

Our new custom built Winery & Cellar Bar is open for lunch & dinner in the heart of the Yarra Valley, at 8 Hunter Road, Healesville. Serving all four ranges of wine made by Jayden Ong, as well as some local legends and a lengthy list of compelling internationals. Plenty of options offered by the glass, as well as refreshing local beer and well made cocktails using unique hand crafted spirits and ingredients.

A free-fall into the world of wine. Visiting the Jayden Ong Winery & Cellar Bar is one of the most captivating food & wine experiences in the Yarra Valley. Simultaneously, the excitement and the sense of calm should make this an automatic inclusion on your winery ‘hit list’.

Our philosophy pays homage to the very best ingredients, cooked simply. Fresh sustainably fished seafood, pasture raised meat from local farmers, the first peas of spring pulled from the garden that morning. From the service to the produce, the magic is in the detail. The perfect accompaniment to your glass of wine.
