The 200-acre property that makes up Bendooley Estate doesn't just offer a cellar door — it's also home to a luxe restaurant, an alfresco cafe and an outpost of the much loved Berkelouw bookshop.

Located in Berrima, in the Southern Highlands, this multi-faceted winery has a focus on Australian and Italian varieties, including sangiovese, pinot gris and chardonnay.

The cellar door offers stunning views across the vineyard, a large fire and lunch daily. For something fancier, though, you can dine in the main restaurant — attached to Berkelouw — which offers everything from chermoula braised lamb shoulder ($36) to blue cheese pizza ($26) and linguine with blue swimmer crab ($29).

Don't feel like leaving? Book into one of the estate's cottages and enjoy a night out of the city.
