De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate
The name Locale (pron Low-car-leh), reflects not only the De Bortoli family's Italian heritage but also the restaurant's philosophy of sourcing the best local Victorian, seasonal and organic produce. Sourcing this excellent local produce is a job that is made easier because of Locale's position in the Yarra Valley, an abundant region full of people producing great quality ingredients from quail and salmon to beautifully fresh mascarpone from Yea and trout from Buxton.
The philosophy behind Locale is a perfect match with the De Bortoli belief of moving towards sustainable, environmentally aware farming and winemaking practices. The fresh new look of the dining room with its neutral tones, carpeted and tiled areas and airy light-filled spaces allow customers to fully focus on the excellent views and the ingredient-driven Italian dishes on the menu.
