Owner description: Dominique Portet Winery has a touch of French tradition in it's wines! Ben Portet is a tenth generation winemaker with his roots in Australia and that of his Father from the Medoc area, Bordeaux, in France . The wines are great and to be enjoyed easily, the Sparkling Rose and rose a hit. Try the cabernet sauvignon and Heathcote shiraz. The very simple Winemaker's cafe with delicious baguettes, Mediterranean tarts and French chicken pies are always ready or Monte coffee with a home made cakes! The La Boutique homewares are easy browsing and add a bit of enjoyment. The tour et detours, are well worth while if you are after a learning experience. Otherwise enjoy the space and just play petanque as you breathe in the fresh air.

“Very Welcoming - & awesome french style Rose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Was impressed by the level of service at this winery. They make wine that has a very French "style" so it reminded us of the French wines of Fume Blanc, Rose, and Bordeaux reds we like - but in the Yarra. We wish you had a distributor in New Zealand.
Also a very good method rose
Thanks

“Great wines and knowledgable staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Visited the winery mid-week (probably the best time to avoid the crowds and tours). The wines on offer for the wine tasting were excellant and the owner himself took us through each wine. Well woth a visit
