Once the home of world-famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, today Coombe is one of the most unique gourmet and cultural destinations the Yarra Valley has to offer.
Coombe is situated behind the hedge of Melba's Coombe Cottage property in Coldstream. Seven acres of stunning landscaped gardens, the Estate offers world-class dining experiences, award-winning Estate-grown Coombe wines, and great insight into the world of Dame Melba via a stroll through the gallery or one of our guided house or garden tours.
Coombe provides the perfect, lavish surrounds for a wine-tasting, wedding or private event, or a luxuriously long lunch in our a la carte restaurant. Located within the restored motor house and historic clock tower, our restaurant led by Executive Chef Neil Cunningham, offers an inspiring selection of seasonal and predominantly estate-grown produce.
The restaurant is modern, spacious yet intimate; and overlooks the landscaped market-style courtyard and gardens. The view from the main dining area is that of the Coombe cottage garden ‘avenue’ and glimpses of the oldest swimming pool in Victoria.
Specialising in varieties historically suited to the Yarra Valley region, chardonnay & pinot noir, Coombe Farms's range of wines also includes other less common varieties such as pinot gris and viognier, as well as a traditional style of sparkling chardonnay. Wine tastings are available at the cellar door.
