Summer on the Peninsula is just about as good as it gets – sunshine, blue skies, long days, warm nights, all surrounded by friends and family.
Here’s how you can spend a summer’s day at Montalto, or our sister estate Tucks which is reopening for a very special summer season!
Open Friday - Monday for lunch, and every day from Wednesday 28th December - Monday 9th January.
The menu continues to be ever-changing - showcasing a seasonal celebration of our estate-grown heirloom produce, alongside the very best locally sourced ingredients from across the Mornington Peninsula.
Specifically designed to share, curated collections of dishes arrive at the table in a series of courses. Each course masterfully highlights the deep connection between our estate gardens (expertly managed by our Produce Manager Julie Bennett), our kitchens and our award-winning wines, inspired by our Creative Director, Matt Wilkinson.
Reservations are absolutely essential, especially in summer. Get in quick to avoid disappointment.
