Napoleone Brewery & Ciderhouse

Top choice brewery in Yarra Valley

A welcome variation among the ubiquitous wineries is this stop to sample Napoleone's selection of beers and ciders. Set in a contemporary glass atrium looking on to the brewing equipment, here you can sample the range of ales and ciders available by the tasting paddle ($12). Brewery tours are held at 11am each Saturday ($20 including tasting), or by appointment.

Its attached modern Italian restaurant overlooks the orchards and does wood-fired pizzas and grilled meats. There's accommodation here too. They also have their Punt Rd winery up the road.
