A guided exploration of our 75-acre estate in Red Hill will show you the best of the seasonal cycle here at Montalto. We combine a working vineyard and olive grove, kitchen gardens, fruit orchard and berry plantation with a commitment to the arts and an extensive sculpture collection, home to the famous Montalto Sculpture Prize, among the most valuable private sculpture prizes in Australia.
This is a unique visitor experience during any season of the year. You could taste the grapes around vintage, learn how we grow and make use of our seasonal produce or explore the property’s natural wetlands and extensive permanent sculpture collection.
Experience Montalto’s ‘Estate to Plate’ philosophy with a guided walk with our chef through our estate kitchen gardens. A passion for seasonal, locally grown produce has seen Montalto kitchen gardens expand to almost four acres in recent years. Explore our expansive gardens and learn how our growers and Montalto kitchen work hand in hand to maximise the natural bounty of the estate.
After the Kitchen Garden walk is a guided, seated tasting in our Alto room, with panoramic views overlooking our Red Hill vineyards, featuring Single Vineyard and Estate wines that truly reflect the cool climate location of the vines and of such quality that we are recognised as a “Red Five Star” Halliday rated winery.
Finally, experience Montalto’s estate to plate philosophy in action, with a stunning 5-course lunch with matched wines in Montalto Restaurant. Montalto Restaurant is the highlight of any visit to Montalto estate. We are a 16 times Good Food Chef-hatted restaurant since opening in 2002 and offer a warm and relaxing dining experience with seasonal local and estate-grown produce, cooked on our wood-fire grill. After lunch, you are welcome to continue your exploration of the property, with a self-guided tour of the estate’s natural wetlands and extensive permanent sculpture exhibition.
The perfect gift for any die-hard foodie, the Montalto Estate to Plate Gift Certificate is an experience out of the ordinary.
