Take an in-depth exploration into the art of winemaking
The perfect experience for a passionate wine lover: visit Montalto’s winery and experience our winemaking process with this unique behind the scenes tour, hosted by our multi-award-winning team.
An educating and entertaining tour of the winery that will bring to life Montalto’s winemaking philosophy, as they explain what they do and why they do it in the cool climate of the Mornington Peninsula. Taste wines straight from the barrel alongside the winemaker and discuss the important changes taking place over time as the wines mature and develop. You will taste and come to understand the differences from vineyard to vineyard as they individually reflect the winemaking quality and why we are recognised as a “Red Five Star” Halliday rated winery.
After your ‘Behind the Scenes’ winery experience, Montalto will host you to a long, leisurely lunch in the stunning surrounds of our casual courtyard Piazza in Red Hill. Take the time to sit back and relax our 75-acre estate where, according to The Age Good Food Guide, “Everything good about eating and drinking on the Mornington Peninsula comes together here … Montalto understands the Peninsula’s strengths and truly shines”.
After lunch, take your time to explore the contemporary sculpture collection set amongst natural wetlands, the produce gardens and vineyards of the estate, home to the famous Montalto Sculpture Prize, among the most valuable private sculpture prizes in Australia.
A stunning experience for any wine lover.
