Shaw Vineyard Estate is reopening its restaurant with a new name and under new management, Olleyville at Shaw Vineyard Estate opens this August.
Murrumbateman’s family owned winery is situated in-between Canberra and Yass on the Barton Highway, the restaurant takes its name from the historic mid-19th century wool producing property that was reinvented by the Shaw family over 19 years ago.
The new refurbishments have given new life to the venue allowing for functions, events and weddings for up to 200 seated and 350 cocktail style with views of Olleyville and the surrounding vineyards.
“It’s fantastic to have on board a restaurateur with the history and resources of Create Events to take the restaurant to another level. We are looking forward to providing a great dining experience for locals and tourists alike that we hope will help to create a new destination venue for the region,” states Graeme Shaw, owner of Shaw Vineyard Estate.
The new menu will focus on traditional and rustic dishes at an affordable price designed by Group Executive Chef Keith Jones. Locals and visitors can expect entrées such as, braised red wine lamb pasta with dry ricotta; Grilled Heirloom Beets and Carrot, Chickpea and Rocket Salad with crumbed feta. For main, guests can tuck into the signature Olleyville Angus burger with swiss cheese, french fries and smoked chipotle and lamb shank Sheppard’s pie.
The restaurant will be dominated by a wood fired oven to create dishes to be shared, including free range wood fired chicken, wood fired apple and desserts like rhubarb crumble served with vanilla ice cream. The in-house pastry chef will create desserts from local products with coffee from Canberra’s ONA roasters. Of course ,being part of the Shaw Vineyard Estate, all dishes will be perfectly paired with one of the cool climate wines that the vineyard is best known for.
Olleyville will be open from Wednesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, and weekends for breakfast, as well as offering bar snacks, cheese and wine boards, high tea and special events.
