Lovely place for a wine tasting
Sep 2019
Such a beautiful setting with a view of the vines and surrounding countryside. Loved the wines. Delightful service from a genuine sommelier. Highly recommend the Chardonnay and Shiraz viognier. Great outdoor setting for fine weather also. A great place to visit.

utterly delightful
Aug 2019
I had read about this winery and was curious to visit it. Luckily through Grampian Helicopter tours we were able to, after I had made a special request. We were greeted by the hostess Clarice, who was very attentive and was happy to chat and share the history of Montara winery. The wine tastings were well paced and the wine is Gorgeous! (they even have a fortified - My Favourite!) . We also had a very delicious cheese platter to enjoy. It was a lovely way to end the day in this beautiful vineyard. We hope to return

Nothing better than sitting on the porch looking out over the winery. Great service with a beautiful sweet platter combined with a cab sav. Traditional platter looked great as well. Great value for money for a relaxing afternoon.

Stunning view, friendly service, fabulous wine and delicious food
Apr 2017 • Couples
I have been here twice once with a small group and once with my husband. Both times we have been welcomed by Sarah who is so friendly and welcoming. The view from the deck is great and the whole place is peaceful it's amazing that's it's so close to town! Highly recommend their Sauvignon Blanc! The platters were excellent and staff take pride in sourcing as much local ingredients as possible. Flexible with adapting food to suit dietary requirements. Excellent I highly recommend for small groups (it's not very big) or couple. Room for picnic blanket or young children. Some room on deck/inside for colder days.

Went on a Sunday afternoon and expected a little wine tasting.

What i received was extremely good service from the Lady in the reception/Bar. In terms of knowledge of the Wine, area etc. Most of all she was a very positive person.

Spectacular scenery with great Shiraz and the many deferent tastes on the Tapas Platter.

Go there, threat yourselves and reserve 2-3 hours.

A surprise I should have known about.
Dec 2016
We dropped in for a tasting and ended up have a 'Grazing Platter for 2 shared amongst 4. The food was antipasto style cheese, olive, bread, crackers and vegetables. Some of the wine was spectacular, esp. the vintage Shiraz ~~at $15 a glass it is a BARGAIN.

Simply The Best
Sep 2016
Visited this beautiful spot on Fathers Day. Wow what a hidden gem this place is. We were welcomed the minute we walked in the door by a lovely young lady, who was very knowledgable about all the wines. We had a cheese/tapas platter which is the best I've ever had & of course some wine out on the deck with the beautiful views.
We could have stayed there all day it was such lovely experience.
The Sav Blanc 2015 is excellent.
Well done Montara next time we visit from Sydney we will come & see you again for sure.
