About Us

Elizabeth Hollingsworth, Founder of Palatable Tea TowelsRemember 2020 and 2021 when we were locked down during Covd-19 for months on end, with short respites where we could leave our homes?

As a Melbourne resident, it was pretty extreme. It was during one such break that we took a chance to explore the nearby Mornington Peninsula wineries which had been desperately waiting for regional tourism to reignite with the loss of overseas and interstate visitors.

If you love picking up a tea towel to remind you of your travels, you'll understand how we had a brainwave to create these as fun souvenirs.

Deciding to self-fund and create an Australiana souvenir, we designed a series of beautifully detailed, watercolour-illustrated tea towels depicting the wine regions of Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Canberra District, Clare Valley, Geelong & the Bellarine Peninsula, Hunter Valley, Margaret River, McLaren Vale, Mornington Peninsula, Mudgee, Tamar Valley and Yarra Valley, illustrated by Ballarat artist Caroline Keys.

Each of the tea towels feature up to 45 or more local wineries, hotels and attractions on a gorgeously illustrated map. 

The featured wineries are vineyards rated four stars or more by James Halliday's Wine Companion with cellar doors open to the public, the accommodation properties vary in style from modest motels to five-star hotel resorts while the variety of local attractions helps widen the region's appeal to a broader range of visitors.

By ordering our wine region map tea towels, perfect for gift occasions from cotton second wedding anniversaries and Father's Day to housewarmings and thank you gifts, you'll help encourage and support regional tourism in Australia.

We regularly feature our regions' wineries, attractions and accommodation properties on our Instagram page and have a What's On blog for them to share their special offers and events.

We hope you and your customers love our tea towels as much as we do!
