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.

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... More

Located on the outskirts of Ararat savour the whites while taking in the views to Mt Cole, Mt Langi Ghiran and the wind farms least to Buangor. All three whites (chardonnay, resiling and sauvignon blanc) are very palatable. Needless to say all three were purchased.

Lovely spot. Great knowledgeable host. Three reds and three whites to taste all very good. The high end Pinot and Shiraz were a big on the pricey side though

Got told about this place by a waitress in Halls Gap - well worth the trip! What a beautiful view to sit and have a couple of glasses of wine(good Riesling), served with a great little cheese and snack platter. Highly recommend this stop.

Stopped here after a weekend at the Grampians. So glad we did. The views are spectacular from the tasting room. Weather was perfect and we spent a great couple of hours enjoying the Riesling and cheese platter outside.

Thank you Montara Winery Cellar Door for a fabulous visit. Wine is outstanding. View is amazing. The cafe tapas is awesome. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and meeting the wine maker. Lovely choice of goodies to purchase to accompany your favourite bottle. A must visit in your itinerary.
