Ceres Bridge Estate
Ceres Bridge Estate is a family owned and operated boutique vineyard and winery, located in the Barrabool foothills, on the Barwon River.Planted in 1996 by Challon, Patricia and family, the vineyard has gradually expanded. Picking and pruning are done by hand and irrigation is minimal. The vines are low yielding, producing grapes with intense fruit flavour.
At JungleRain we grow all our own organic chilli to be processed into our hot chilli products. Each year at the beginning of winter we begin with the indoor germination of all our selected range of chillis. Towards the end of summer we begin the harvesting of the chilli pods for the production of our hot sauces and other chilli products. Most of the chillis are processed fresh at this time, with percentages being dried for our chilli powders. We have nine varieties of hot chilli sauce and one variety of hot wasabi mustard, an exquisite mix of flavors and aromas with a range of customers' heat tolerances. Our sauces are unique in that they are combined with a fruit base with spice that compliments both the flavour and the heat.
La Madre Bakery
We work hard to produce breads full of gracious goodness and take the time to look after the people in our business and the environment we work and live within.La Madre Italian for 'The Mother' represents the generations-old mother culture that we use to start our sourdough breads. Using nothing more adaptable than our bakers' hands, each loaf is created with loving attention. We uphold the traditional techniques of artisanal baking to ensure each loaf or sweet treat is of the highest quality.We scour the land for the finest ingredients using freshly milled flours, filtered water, pure sea salt and natural air borne yeast. Where possible, we use tasty local heroes like the Kalamata olives in our Olive Sourdough, sourced right here in Victoria from the wonderful Mount Zero. And, of course, it is a definite 'No' to nasty preservatives and additives.
Leighgrove Olives is a boutique olive grove, totally family owned and operated by the White family. The farm is located in the delightful township of Inverleigh, just 26km west of Geelong. Located on a picturesque stretch of the Barwon River, the 4500 tree olive grove is producing extra virgin olive oil of the finest quality. The cool climate conditions with a long, slow ripening period, together with the rich pastoral soils, results in oil of particularly deep, full-flavoured characteristics.
Each piece is hand formed to create unique naturally organic forms, which are then painted by hand. Loving to explore the old techniques of the past in ceramics, then adding my unique designs. All things old are new again. My hand painted and drawing are created one by one and are inspired by my love of nature and animals.
