What is
The Mantle
of Melbourne?

A blank slate for viticultural, agricultural, creative and hospitality dreams to be realised and celebrated.

A facility where ventures and events draw inspiration from the natural abundance of the property and the experienced founders offer nurturing guidance to develop ideas and a market for wine, produce, recreation and entertainment.

The Farm

Close your eyes and picture a paddock with your grape vines or produce, this is ‘Your Farm’.  A place for experienced viticulturists or farmers to extend their harvest or budding agriculturists and wine makers to cultivate rich, organic produce; your paddock or row lease is an opportunity to farm land that has social spirit and market infrastructure. You can grow fresh organic produce or grapes for yourself or the community with value add facilities of a commercial kitchen and winery…the land and opportunity is calling you.

Chefs/Food Makers

Take your gastronomic business to new heights using our incubation kitchen. A fully equipped commercial cooking facility that allows for experimentation, catering, teaching and learning. Make new supply connections with farmers in the region or on the property or lease a paddock. Create new menus and produce to cater for your restaurant or event. The oven is warming…

The Mantle Providore

The Mantle Providore is the centrepiece of the property, a place to convene, collect and celebrate. Chefs and farmers connect with invested community members and guests to celebrate all things food. This is deli meets grocer, where fresh produce is harvested and cooked within footsteps. The same produce can be packaged for sale as part of a weekly convenient shop or ideally, take the time to breath the country air and graze farm-style at your leisure.
