Steels Gate Cellar Door and Restaurant is located in the picturesque Yarra Valley. More specifically we are in Dixons Creek and our views stretch back down the valley toward Yarra Glen.
We have loads of outdoor spaces for ceremonies, under trees, next to vines (but not too close, see T&C’s), on our beautiful open deck, and perfect for photography is the country track that meanders along the chardonnay vines and down towards the back of the property.
Dining areas overview:
The set up of our dining areas is thoughtful and clever, giving so many options depending on the size of your group, we have our beautiful private tasting room perfect for a small intimate group to have their own space. We have our stunning high-ceiling restaurant which opens out on our newly renovated deck, which is undercover (and therefore weather-proof). The design of the undercover deck and our bi-fold doors, means you can have a sit down undercover function for a large group. We also have our side deck which is open-air and perfect for a long table. Down on the grass area in front of our cellar door are four beautiful 12-seat picnic tables and room for picnic blankets ,as well as our designer fire-pit.
Music, lights, camera, ACTION!!
We have brilliant SONOS speakers in our private dining room, the main dining room and out on our deck area. The music on all three systems can be synced or can play separate playlists. Simply create a list on Spotify and send us the link and we can do the rest. If live music is your preference, we have a couple of fabulous live performers that we can provide contact details for you.
The lighting in our dining areas is well planned and separate areas can be isolated. If you wish to set up additional lighting (such as twinkling lights or candles), you will need to talk to us about set up and access times.
Camera (we really mean photography):
We can recommend a number of fantastic photographers who understand how to maximise on the landscape and environment that is so unique to the Yarra Valley. No matter the weather or time of day, they will capture the most beautiful and true memories of your day.
So here’s the other things that we can organise for you…
Our preferred cake artist is Leah Zorro from Sugar Mumma Cakes. There really is nothing that Leah can’t do when it comes to size, flavour and style. https://www.facebook.com/sugarmummacakesau
At Steels Gate Wines, we have a number of fabulous tour operators that also specialise in the transport and logistic requirements for wedding groups, be it luxury cars or large coaches, let us know your requirements and we will obtain a quote on your behalf.
It’s hard to go past Flowers of Yarra Glen. Allie has decades of experience and can make the most stunning arrangements for bouquets, headbands, buttonholes, table-centrepieces and so much more. http://www.flowersofyarraglen.com.au/
With all of the above, we recommend our preferred suppliers for their quality, and also because they know our business, they know our setting, so when it comes to meeting your needs, they can offer you great guidance in terms of what will work well at our venue.
If however, you would like to engage your own suppliers (be it flowers, lighting, DJ/Band, cake etc, please ensure they contact our venue to arrange access and delivery/set up.
