Overview
More
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.

Wine was expensive but of good quality. The female attendant at the tasting was rude and unfriendly. Upmarket not suitable for kids.
