Chateau Yering is a wonderfully glamorous country house hotel, originally built as a house by one of the early families in the area. Apparently it was the place to be seen in the 19th century. These days, as a hotel, it has function rooms and two restaurants of which Sweetwater is the more informal cafe open only for breakfast.
The name Sweetwater tells a bit of the Chateau's history: it was one of the first varieties of grape planted on the property. The cafe is set in a kind of conservatory, so that it's filled with light and seems to be in the middle of the great gardens. This is a good place to bring anyone interested in gardens, plants, flowers or food.
