Montara’s colonial style cellar door, constructed in 1977, incorporates a great deal of district history in its structure. The walls are built of 90-year old mud bricks from a building at Great Western, the windows were part of the Ararat hospital, the cedar doors were salvaged from Commercial Bank of Australia in Ararat and the tasting bench is made from old champagne riddling racks. The roof slates, once part of the Mount William woolshed, date back 140 years and were originally brought to Australia from Wales.
We invite you to visit us for a tasting at the cellar door to experience the stunning views of Mount Langi Ghiran, also known by the locals as “the pregnant lady.” The picturesque landscape will entice you to relax in the shaded picnic areas surrounded by vines and perhaps share a bottle of wine with friends. Our cellar door café offers some of the best fresh local produce around, as well as a range of tea and coffee for your enjoyment (see current menu below).
