Shadowfax Winery Werribee
Shadowfax Winery Werribee: Established in 1998, Shadowfax is a boutique winery located 30 minutes from Melbourne, in the heart of Werribee Park. Contemporary in design and function, Shadowfax’s unique architecture reflects an attempt to create a harmony between the winery and its natural surroundings. Shadowfax’s rusted sheet metal exterior, and its terra cotta interior, evoke the best of our Australian wine heritage.
So why is it called Shadowfax (is it just the appearance of these shadows?) - In J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic, The Lord of the Rings, Shadowfax was chief among horses. He shone by day and passed unseen at night, and it was considered that Shadowfax would be a fine symbol for the winery.
