A wonderful view awaits you when you drive up to del Rios Café and cellar door. Whether you sit on the terrace, or
inside behind the huge picture windows, you can’t fail to be impressed with the sweeping vistas of the Brisbane Ranges
and Geelong. You’ll receive a warm Spanish welcome when you visit del Rios. Enjoy your lunch at the café and you can
taste some of the award-winning wines, along with delicious traditional Spanish tapas such as paella, Spanish chorizos,
Albondigas (meatballs) and our popular Anakie Wagyu burger. The café menu thoughtfully lists a suggested del Rios wine
to try that will best accompany each dish. Great coffee and homemade blueberry crepes or apple pie are a perfect finish.
The café is open every weekend from noon until 4 pm. Between 11 am and 5 pm the cellar door is open offering wine
tastings. You can also buy wine here to take home with you. Whether you’re a wine lover or a fan of Spanish cuisine,
a visit to del Rios is a must. There is live music every third Sunday of the month. Just 20 minutes drive from Geelong;
you’ll enjoy the scenery nearly as much as the food and wine.

The installation of a heating and cooling system has been
welcomed after temperatures soared well in to the high 30s
last week.
A $5000 Round 2 Community Grant from Moorabool Wind

and we thank Moorabool Wind Farm for the opportunity to
be able to source community funding,” said BBC Secretary
Mick Conroy.
“The members will appreciate cool clubrooms on match

eluded the dynamic opener in his previous eight innings
since joining the club.
Hyatt’s 107 that included 16 fours, has set up the Lions with
a prime opportunity to secure the points against the fifth

The Lions finished the day all out for a season high 300, an
achievement that brought smiles to all involved at the club,
most notably coach Mick Alexander.
“We spoke at the start of the day about compiling a big score
together considering we hadn’t really done that well when
