Rochester Wine Tavern (RWT) is a unique property situated in the progressive small country town of Rochester. The Tavern is housed in the beautifully restored Commercial Hotel. The hotel caters for large group functions along with accommodation. Current owner (over 5 years) is now selling the business with a long term lease. (Note that the Landlord will also consider selling the FREEHOLD).


Rochester is 2 hours drive north from Melbourne and a 20-minute drive to Echuca, and 40-minute drive to Bendigo and is positioned at the Northern End of the renowned Heathcote Wine Region. It is ideally placed to capitalise on the growing reputation of this area.


The Tavern itself has multiple Dining areas catering for both small and large groups (up to 80 seated or 120 casuals).

A welcoming bar greets the guests as they make their way to the Lounge/Formal Dining area or the Function area, including a magnificent space of a Rear Courtyard/Beer Garden.

A mixture of reverse cycle, open fires and gas log fires keeps everybody comfortable whilst they sample Local Wines or feast on the great reputation of fine food and Woodfired Pizzas offered.

An extremely well-planned, clean, Commercial Kitchen is complimented with Stainless Steel Benches, Double Fryer, Commercial Combo Oven, Commercial Grill Plate, and a new Dishwasher and also by a Woodfired Pizza Oven situated in the Function area. There are too many storage options to mention, but they are very adequate.

The RWT has become the GO TO Place for Celebrations such as Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Reunions and any other function is catered adequately for.

The Tavern also has a great reputation for being Family Friendly.

4 Rooms are available for Guests, all have ensuites and are well fitted out with Queen Size Beds, Television, Reverse cycle air conditioning/Heating, Fridges, and Tea/Coffee making facilities.
