Fodor's Review

A family winery for three generations, De Bortoli was established (in New South Wales) in 1928, four years after the founder Vittorio De Bortoli and his wife Giuseppina migrated to Australia from northern Italy. Today, this Yarra Valley winery specializes in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling, along with a changing array of less-famous wines including Gamays, Pinot Blanc and Sangiovese. Wine tastings cost A$5, which includes the famous Noble One, De Bortoli's most awarded wine since its release in 1982. The restaurant, which has stunning views of the surrounding vines, landscaped gardens, and mountains, serves delectable dishes using Yarra Valley produce; on weekends the fixed price two-course lunch is A$55 a head and the three-course option is A$68. You might like to start with an aperitif—perhaps the DB cocktail of sparkling wine, blood orange juice, and Campari (A$10). A popular feature is the cheese maturation and tasting room in the cellar-door area, where gourmet cheese-tasting plates are matched with wines (prices vary depending on produce chosen). A Mini Wine Adventure, which includes a wine tutorial, guided vineyard and winery tours, barrel tastings, hints on food and wine matching, and a three-course lunch, can be arranged by appointment at $A140 per head.
