Down the road, around the corner, just a few paddocks away.
A celebration of local produce in the Yarra Valley. 


As part of the 2018 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, this community driven dinner is a collaboration between The Warehouse Bar
& Larder, The Providore at Meletos, Winemaker Syd Bradford (Thick as Thieves) and guest Chef Hugh Davison from neighbouring Stones of the Yarra Valley.

Join us from 6.30pm for a glass of wine and salumi in The Providore. Peruse the wonderful regional produce and unique homewares with some added encouragement from an exclusive 20% discount on the night. Through our private courtyard you will be ushered into the warmth of The Warehouse where you will join fellow diners at a communal table for a shared feast of Yarra Valley produce. The talented and prolific Syd Bradford, will provide some sensational wines and entertainment through the night with his infamous Thick As Thieves releases.

By night’s end, we hope you've got to know your fellow diners, fallen in love with some amazing local produce and learnt the story behind Syd’s wine ‘The Aloof Alpaca’. We look forward to sharing our table with you.

We recently visited Syd for our quarterly printed broadsheet Seasoned

Just a Few Paddocks Away
Thursday March 22, 2018



The Providore at Meletos recently launched a series of community driven events held next door at The Warehouse. Offering a less formal, more casual atmosphere, it really rounds off all styles of dining experiences offered across the property now. The focus, like The Stables degustation, is seasonal eating and in this case, meeting the makers. See below for photos of our inaugural dinner with winemakers Payten & Jones and pig farmers Glenn and Paula Jones of Limestone Valley Free Range. 


The Providore at Meletos hosts a regular weekend program of interactive sessions with local producers. On a Saturday or Sunday,
we invite farmers, makers and doers to pop in-store and share their produce and wares. So much more than a tasting, the sessions have
an emphasis on education and appreciation of where our food comes from and how it's made. We've already had some fantastic afternoons learning about artisan cheese making, gorgeous chocolate tastings and pasture-raised chicken farming, with a few chooks visiting our front garden on the day! 

We're excited to curate the calendar of upcoming Meet Your Maker events and are simply spoiled for choice! In most cases the producers are not only represented in The Providore, but supply our kitchens across the property.
