Salix Restaurant & Bistro

Weddings and Functions

_DSC1162 hero shot - top of pageIt’s the quintessential Mornington Peninsula experience to dine between the vines and soak up the last rays of the sun with a glass of something delicious, and there’s nowhere better to do that than Salix at Willow Creek Winery. There are numerous venue options on the property; the formal Restaurant, the stylish Bistro with it’s expansive heated deck, the cavernous and atmospheric Barrel Hall, as well as the extensive manicured gardens.

Whether it’s the biggest day of your life, a small office party or a 120 person cocktail party, our dedicated events team, lead by Rachael McCarthy, will work closely with you to make your day memorable.  Alongside Rachael is chef Bernard McCarthy, ready to create a menu to suit your exact needs.

Contact Rachael on 03 5989 7640 or via email to discuss your event in more detail.

Rachael has hosted close to two hundred weddings at Salix.  A self-confessed ‘wedding tragic’ she puts her heart and soul into every one. Here is a snapshot of the wonderful feedback she has received for her contribution to these special occasions.
