Be sure to try the award-winning ultra-premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay here.
They are open Monday to Friday from 12 noon to 4pm and Sat. & Sun, & Public Holidays and School Holidays from 11am to 5pm
Many wines sell out so if you find one you like, you'd best get it quickly. :-)
NOTE: The owners mention that speed limit enforcement on the roads in and around the winery are strictly enforced---"
Please note that the speed limit drops to 90kph to 80kph and to 70kph and is VIGOROUSLY enforced by unmarked police cars with motion radar!"
As you drive into the carpark the first thing you notice is the "sculpture". This is "CLIP" by Sebastian Di Mauro. It alludes to the Australian time honoured weekend past time of lawn mowing, as well as the tradtional European art of topiary.
Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove is open 7 days a week. You can call in for either lunch from their restaurant or maybe do a spot of wine tasting. Olive oils and other olive products are also available.
The view over the vines and olive groves is not to be missed.
Don't miss calling in to "Red Hill Cheese" while in the area. The sign is easily missed, so don't drive too fast along Arthur's Seat Rd. It is between Main Creek Rd and Flinders Rd. It really is tucked away from the main road.
This cheesery was established in April 2000. A seasonal range of quality cheese is made using fresh, organic cow's milk and free range goat's milk.
They are open for tastings and sales daily...12 noon - 5pm.
Not all of the cheese appealed to me, but I loved the COOLART SOFT. I'll be back for more of that.
Home cheesemaking workshops are also available.
