Go Beyond The Cellar Door
...where tasting great wine is only part of the experience.
The cool, maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula creates the ideal growing environment for the early ripening varieties Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, (as well as a unique cool climate take on the classic Australian variety, Shiraz). Montalto’s Discovery Tasting offers beginners and seasoned wine lovers alike a unique insight into the roles played by variety, site, and winemaking in producing these world-class coolclimate wines.
Set in the breathtaking Alto wine room, with panoramic views overlooking Montalto’s Red Hill vineyards, you will be guided through a seated educational and entertaining tasting of wine from current releases and back vintages, as well as limited bottlings not available away from the estate.
Following your tasting, take a seat in the beautiful Piazza, where the seasonal menu is drawn from Montalto’s produce gardens. Enjoy a casual, shared lunch with a glass of Montalto wine.
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.
