MFWF Interstellar Wine Worlds. An out-of-this-world wine party
Look out, Yarra Valley – We’re throwing a wine party of cosmic proportions.
Introducing Interstellar Wine Worlds: a night showcasing the flair and faculty of the movers and shakers of the Yarra Valley wine world, including the storied likes of Mac Forbes, Payten and Jones, Gembrook Hill, Fin and Cré, and Jayden Ong.
You’ll be poured a nice glass of Moonlit Forest wine on arrival, with delicious bites circulating the room, including house-made focaccia with fior di latte and Zuni pickle, char-grilled lamb arrosticini, Stone & Crow cheese gougères, Cellar Bar gildas and fiocco with grissini
On the wheels of steel you’ll find Melbourne party DJs Ennio Styles and Dan Beck, ready to corrupt the airwaves.
If you’d like to turn up the dial even further, you can get a ticket that includes access to a private area dedicated to “deep-cellared curiosities”, where you’ll experience a personal tasting with winemakers showcasing some special wines from their cellars.
Over the bar you’ll have craft cocktails, cold beers, and wines by the winemakers available by the glass and bottle, plus, an internationally star-studded wine list for your drinking pleasure.
And there’s also a selection of heartier dishes available to buy if you’ve worked up an appetite just thinking about it all, including oysters shucked to order, the legendary deluxe roast-chicken rolls (aka the wine lover’s friend), plus house-made pasta with brown butter and sage and, if you really want to let it rip, char-grilled Southern rock lobster with Champagne butter sauce.
Let’s shoot for the stars. Grab the posse and book now.
Saturday 11 November 3pm – 9pm
Tickets available via Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

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.
2022 Gourmet Traveller Wine Awards
“One of the coolest places in the Yarra Valley to enjoy a glass of wine is surprisingly in the centre of Healesville’s industrial estate. Jayden Ong’s Winery and Cellar Bar – with its barrel-lined walls and hanging floral installations – manages to feel intensely artisanal and considered despite the lack of valley views. Ong’s decades in hospitality shine through in the warm, insightful service and the concise but informed range of local and international wines on offer…”
2023 Good Food Guide Awards
“An industrial estate on Healesville’s outskirts houses one of the region’s coolest dining experiences. There’s no killer views or schmick restaurant; the action takes place outside or in the barrel-lined winery, which houses an eight-metre limestone bar and dramatic hanging floral sculpture. Winemaker Jayden Ong (also co-owner of Cumulus Inc) works the floor like the pro he is, offering insightful advice on his innovative, minimal-intervention wines, other local heroes and a dynamite international offering…”
