This is for your mother. You may be celebrating out with friends, with family or a group of strangers but this experience will have you raising a glass to your mother. Begin the high tea with a traditional three-tiered stand generously catering with gourmet sandwiches and warm savories.
Perfect traditional fresh baked scones may often be overlooked but we can assure you they will be discussed long after your afternoon with us. A glass of Yarra Valley sparkling wine or French Champagne is offered upon arrival, followed by a varied selection of teas and coffee.
And we would be remiss to overlook the sense of place; the grandeur and history associated with the venue, antiques and art second only to the magnificent view out across the grazing pastures, vineyards and Domain Chandon estate beyond. Your High Tea will include an indulgent selection of:
- Ribbon Sandwiches
- Savory Items
- Scones served with house-made jam and cream
- Selection of miniature cakes
