Fodor's Review

Overlooking a vineyard of rolling green hills, this restaurant serves excellent French-inspired cuisine. Open daily for lunch (though closed Wednesday in winter), the restaurant has an à la carte weekday menu, and on weekends diners choose either a two-course (A$75) or three-course (A$88) meal. The menu changes regularly, based on available local produce. The wine list borrows from the best of the estate's vintages, as well as classic wines from other regions. The open-air Piazza Café (open weekends) dishes up casual dining. From October to April, you can picnic on the grounds from hampers prepared by the restaurant. The picnics are hugely popular, so book well in advance. Take a moment to check out the herb garden and the nut and berry orchard, and admire the sculptures on permanent display. If you're visiting from mid-February to late April you'll be able to see the entries in the Montalto Sculpture Prize and vote for your favorite. The expansive property also includes a natural wetlands and specially built boardwalks, from which visitors have a chance of spotting more than 90 bird species. The Cellar Door is open daily from 11 to 5.
