We appreciate your support and patience at this time and look forward to hosting you at the Shiraz Republic.


Built in 2012, our rustic cellar door overlooks our gorgeous 25-acre vineyard, with plenty of seating available inside and out for you to relax over a glass of wine or beer. At our bar, we offer vertical tastings of our wines and in addition to 10 taps of our very own Cornella Brewery’s craft beer (and some cocktails). Fridges are fully stocked with your regular favourites and softies for the kids.

Surrounding our cellar door are the artefacts, sheds and farm equipment of the former farm and post office of Cornella, established originally in the 1880s. So stay around a tour of our local history with great photo opportunities or unwind with a game of pool in our outdoor table or relax inside our barrel room.

Wine & Craft Beer

On taste at our cellar door are our latest releases, including Chardonnay & Rosé alongside past and current vintages of our estate-grown Shiraz wines – also available by the glass. Our bar is setup with 10 taps of craft beer brewed on site. We recommend trying our $10 Tasting Pallet of four beers to sample our range.

For everything else, we have a fully stocked fridge full of your usual favourites, including cider and soft drink. We make pretty damn good coffee, too.


We offer a $12 Pizza Menu, available every day from 10am – 6pm. The perfect accompaniment for a glass of wine or tasting pallet of beer. On event days, you can usually find burgers, American BBQ or something else yummy that we put on for the occasion.

Find us at 507 Hamblin Rd, Cornella VIC 3551 – 15 minutes north of Heathcote. Contact us on (03) 5433 6338 if you have any questions or requests.
