Hey Lovers! Our Valentine’s Day Experience Guide
What’s not to love about Valentine’s Day?
Whether you’re treating yourself, your besties, your lover or your mum, it’s a lovely day to spread joy.
Here in the beautiful Yass Valley we’re spoiled for choice with unique and memorable experiences.
We love welcoming visitors to our country chocolate studio and cafe. Our signature chocolate tasting experience makes a great gift and we always enjoy hearing about the wonderful nearby places that you’ve visited.
Here are our top suggestions for experiences to remember this Valentine’s Day:
See Kate Miller-Heidke in concert at Tallagandra Hill Winery
Kate Miller-Heidke in concert, Wednesday 14 February
If you haven’t yet experienced a concert at Tallagandra Hill Winery, then this is your perfect opportunity. It’s by far my favourite concert venue and what could be better than great music, amazing wines and beautiful food all in intimate and picturesque surrounds. Through their “we love local” campaign, winemakers and hosts hosts David and Mary have brought an incredible line-up of Australian artists to our region. An easy half-hour drive from Canberra, you can also book one of their onsite cottages for the perfect staycation.

Enjoy a delightful dinner at Poachers Pantry
Valentine’s Day Dinner, Wednesday 14 February
The outstanding menu and beautiful wines at Poacher’s are usually available by daytime, making for a fabulous day out. However, there is something truly special about enjoying their venue at night. Enjoy a gorgeous ambience and an amazing menu by Chef Adam Wilson. We recommend keeping an eye out for their selection of dinners throughout the year too!

Friday Night Rosé Dinner at Four Winds Vineyard
Friday 17 February, Four Winds Vineyard
Four Winds Vineyard make some of the most beautiful rosé we’ve tried (we love it so much that we feature it in some of our chocolates)!
Listen to winemaker Jeremy share the story behind each rosé, which will be paired with their delicious wood fired pizzas. Perfect Friday night out sorted.
The Four Winds Vineyard wine dinners are always a hit and tend to sell out fast, so we recommend jumping online quickly to secure your tickets. We’ll be there and will be bringing a rosé dessert along too!

Behind the scenes family fun at The Vintner’s Daughter
Tours operate Fridays and Saturdays
For an outing with a difference the whole family will enjoy, you can’t beat a farm tour followed by a wine tasting at The Vintner’s Daughter.
The farm tour is a wonderful opportunity to join winemaker and farmer Steph Helm as she takes you behind the scenes, feeding the various animals and learning about the role they play in farm and vineyard management.
As part of the tour, adults will enjoy tasting Steph and Ben’s beautiful wines and children can run around or enjoy some colouring in.
