Tucked in amongst the wetlands and vines or positioned in carefully considered open spaces throughout Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove, you'll find over 20 permanent sculptures that make up the Montalto Sculpture Trail. The Sculpture Trail and grounds of Montalto are open daily from 11am to 5pm for visitors to enjoy at their leisure. We highly recommend popping into the cellar door beforehand to collect a glass of wine to sip on while you meander the trail.
Each year this permanent collection is joined by at least another 20 works which form the annual Montalto Sculpture Prize. In 2016, these works will be on display from mid-February (when the winner is announced) to October, allowing the artists' work to be displayed for an extended period. The Montalto Sculpture Prize is designed to encourage artistic pursuit, and to allow guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the property in association with the wonderful creativity of the sculptures.
The winner's work will join the permanent collection. All other sculptures that form the Montalto Sculpture Prize are for sale.
As well as the Sculpture Trail, visitors enjoy fine wine, delicious food prepared using locally sourced, seasonal produce, and world-class hospitality. A visit to Montalto is a unique experience you'll treasure and recommend for years to come.
