We have a “not so secret” love affair with most things Italian, and it is easy to see why.
With so many Italian influences around the Yarra Valley, our love for Italy is reinforced every day. When you visit our home here in the valley, you could easily be mistaken in thinking you have been transported across the ocean to beautiful Italy, rather than a short one-hour drive from Melbourne.
If you, like us, enjoy the Italian lifestyle of relaxed, positive living, a deep connection to nature along with seasonally inspired food, easy drinking wine and passionate conversations with family and friends, we thought you might like Eight of our Yarra Valley – Italian favourites.
The Yarra Valley is full of wonderful places to explore, however we do say that with enormous bias because this beautiful place on earth is our home.
So we will let you be the judge of this magical land as we share the adventures of a few beautiful guests through their visual storytelling as they fill their Botanica Editions Tote Bags with Yarra Valley treasures.
Thank you Emma, Jess, Allison, Jessica, Madeline and Mikajla for sharing your #adventuresbotanicaeditionstotebag
Glorious winter in the Yarra Valley.
Fresh fragrant air, clear, crisp, exhilarating and luminous. The call of a morning bird-song, and open, spacious landscape gently tug at your soul pulling you back to nature.
Winter in the Yarra Valley calls for splashing about with gumboots, warm coats and snug hats. It is a time for hearty food in our cosy restaurants, and the warm smile with relaxed conversation of our cellar door hosts.
With so much to weave in to a winter stay at Botanica Editions, we wanted to help by suggesting a boutique 4-day (3-night) gluttonous adventure. One we like to take our family and friends on when they visit during the winter months.
