A sprawling new vineyard and accompanying restaurant, function space, accommodation and cellar door is set to open up its doors over the coming months along the gateway of the Pyrenees Wine Region.
The project of Ballarat wonderpreneur Teddy Powlett, Wayward is situated just 20 minutes down the road from the city in the quaint township of Waubra.
‘It’s the first winery as you hit the gorgeous Pyrenees Wine Region,’ Teddy says, ‘and we are close to opening the restaurant for weekenders and functions with plans for accommodation and a cellar door later this year.’
With the Pyrenees renowned for its exceptional cool-climate wines, and Teddy known for his curation of refined dining experiences in the region (he is partially responsible for the likes of Ballarat’s Ragazzone, Moon and Mountain and Renard Social Club), lovers of fine vino can only imagine what is to be expected when this boutique space beckons them in.
According to Teddy, working in such a creative industry is what keeps him going back for more.
I love the people I work with and the creativities elements of the industry. It’s been a tough few years but the resilience shown by our staff has been amazing.
