ACCOMMODATION: VINEYARD VIEW ROOMS

Intoxicating vineyard views reign supreme with floor-to-ceiling windows, a private terrace and a plush king bed all boasting bewitching eye lines over the vines.

Custom-made furnishings outfit the remainder of this tactile and seductive space. Rain showers, double vanities, custom-made bath products and the option of a deep-soak Japanese tub create a spa-like setting in your private oasis.

DESTINATION DINING: DOOT DOOT DOOT

Executive Chef Guy Stanaway (formerly of Aman) has set some splendid offerings both in the casual winery and cellar door restaurant Rare Hare, where sharing plates laden with fresh local produce are the go, and the “refined” dining, Doot Doot Doot, offering degustation featuring clever combinations of technique, texture, presentation and ingredients.Under an arrestingly beautiful canopy of a slowly twinkling 10,000-globe chandelier, packaged into the stay is the eight-course strap-yourself-in degustation, with matched wines from the estate vineyard and beyond.

THE LOCATION
Jackalope is just an hour from Melbourne, in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula wine region. Over 50 cellar doors and restaurants dot the rolling hills around Jackalope’s own 11-hectare vineyard, while on the property, guests can soak up intoxicating views, or soak in the hotel’s stunning 30-metre infinity pool. While the hotel offers a car service to get you to surrounding vineyards, Jackalope’s two restaurants, winery and cellar door, cocktail bar, and the comfort of the luxury accommodation are compelling reasons to cosy in.
