Once the home of Dame Nellie Melba, Coombe Yarra Valley is a property with an unrivalled provenance. Dame Nellie Melba, or Helen ‘Nellie’ Porter, was one of Australia’s most famous opera singers who trained and performed in Melbourne before moving to Europe in search of a career in singing.
She was known for her flamboyance and impeccable sense of style, her friends included famous artists, actors and royalty. Good friend, French Chef Escoffier famously created the dessert Peach Melba in her honour. She regularly returned to Australia and built Coombe Cottage in Coldstream in 1912.
Today, the iconic venue offers visitors a truly excellent dining experience, tours of the gardens and gallery, wine tasting or private events. Just 5km from Coombe the Melba Estate, the 120-acre Coombe Farm vineyard is still owned and operated by Melba’s descendants, the Vestey family.
