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).
The Mornington Peninsula Discovery Tasting offers beginners and seasoned wine lovers alike insight into the roles played by variety, site and winemaking in producing world-class and cool-climate wines.
Set in our breathtaking Alto wine room, with panoramic views overlooking the Estate vineyards, we will guide you through an educational tasting of wine from our current releases and back vintages, as well as limited bottlings not available elsewhere.
Following your tasting, take a seat in the beautiful Piazza, where the seasonal menu is drawn from our produce gardens. Included in your Montalto Mornington Peninsula Discovery Tasting is a casual, shared lunch in the Piazza with a glass of Estate wine.
After lunch, take your time to explore the contemporary sculpture collection set amongst the produce gardens and vineyards of Montalto estate.
