Cellar Door

Our priority is the wellbeing of guests and staff, so in line with the government recommendations, Wine Down Friday events & Cellar Door visits will be suspended. We will keep you posted. These are temporary changes.

Please see below for our regular programming:



Our cellar door is open for tasting and sales Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 12 noon – 5pm.  Bookings are required in advance for groups of 10 or more.

Alternatively, private tours may be booked with Grampians Wine Tours departing Halls Gap every Saturday, or with Grampians Helicopters available on demand seven days a week from Stawell airport.

Wine Down Friday Events:

Celebrate the start of the weekend with us!

Wine Down Friday is on the 1st Friday of every month. Enjoy live music, $4 glasses of Jimmy wines for Jimmy Hour (4pm-5pm), our full Montara Grampians estate range, beer, and platters in various sizes to suit all groups!

Entry is free (no outside food/drinks permitted).

If you’re looking for a designated driver for the evening, Grampians Wine Tours offers a shuttle service departing from Halls Gap and Ararat specifically for Wine Down Fridays.
