The multi-award winning Montalto Vineyard provides a near one-stop wine and food experience, within an hour of Melbourne, Victoria.
The relaxed elegance of the Montalto Restaurant is set in a striking and harmonious landscape building featuring rammed earth walls, timber frames and rough-hewn floor boards to blur the edges of inside and out, bringing the beauty of the outside in. Floor to ceiling windows take advantage of the breathtaking rural outlook of vines, olive groves, sculpture leading down to picturesque lakes and wetlands, with pasture, and a hint of the ocean as the backdrop.
During the warmer months, there a few places better than a table on the extensive decking, a magical place to while away the afternoon. In the cooler months, the gentle rays of the winter sun warm the restaurant as they shine through the windows.
The Montalto Restaurant is imbued with a provincial spirit, from a personal greeting at the front door to the food on the plate in front of you. Led by Head Chef Barry Davis, the kitchen serves food inspired by regional France, but anchored in the fresh seasonal produce of the estate and the Mornington Peninsula.
This includes Montalto's own expansive herb and vegetable garden, fruit & nut orchard and berry garden to which chefs make daily visits, harvesting the best of the garden for use in the restaurant.
As part of the regional dining experience, the wine list is not limited to the estate wines, but also offers selections from highly regarded Mornington Peninsula, Australian and international wineries.
The restaurant has been newly extended.
