About This Venue

Located in the heart of the Heathcote Wine Region, we are a family run, boutique winery, craft brewery, bar, function space and live music venue. Surrounding our cellar door and function area is our picturesque 25-acre Shiraz vineyard and the rustic remnants of the Post Office and farmhouse of Cornella.

The Shiraz Republic has an amazing rustic backdrop for your special day. Our Barrel Room features high ceilings and is ready to be transformed for the reception. Arrange for an elegant seated dinner inside, or choose to dine alfresco with long tables overlooking the vineyard or amongst the peppercorn trees. After a picturesque Central Victorian sunset, the fire pits offer the perfect location to enjoy our boutique beer and wine with the newlyweds. The Shiraz Republic is an impressive destination that has something to please everyone.

The Vineyard Gates

With our Bedford truck stage for live music, a restored post and rail fence with farm gate overlooking the picturesque vineyard, open fire pit, outdoor pool table and picnic tables, the Vineyard Gates is our most versatile space. Challenge your friends to a game of pool, keep toasty warm around one of our upcycled fire pits or enjoy some tunes from the Bedford stage.

The Peppercorns

Relax under the Peppercorns with a refreshing Cornella Real craft beer or glass of Shiraz Republic wine. Warm up around the open fire pit or sit around the handmade banquet table or one of our many picnic tables.

The Barrel Room

The latest addition to our winery is the Barrel Room. Check out upcoming wines maturing in French or American oak barrels. Enjoy a game of pool, chill out on the couches or sit around the massive dining table.
