Cellar Door

We are excited to announce the reopening of Montara cellar door Saturday 5th December 12noon-5pm.

Our priority is the wellbeing of guests and staff, as such we have implemented Covid safe practises in line with government recommendations. Our Wine Down Friday events are suspended but we will keep you posted as our new look Wine Down experiences return in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to cellar door.

Cellar Door Saturday & Sunday

Our cellar door is open for tasting and sales Saturday, Sunday 12 noon – 5pm.  Bookings recommended for Sip & Stay experiences with bookings required in advance for platters or groups of 6 or more.

Experience the Montara Grampians estate range each weekend with a tasting flight showcasing current vintage wines.

Each weekend our wine maker Simon Fennell will choose a feature wine selected from our premium Single Vineyard and Chalambar Road wine cellar. These feature wines will change weekly as this specialty tasting experience is curated with season and region in mind.

Tastings $5.00 per head (redeemable on any bottle purchase).

Sip & Stay

Sip & Stay Saturday and Sunday with a glass or two from our tasting range available for $10.00 per glass or our feature wine for $16.00 per glass. Pre order a platter and soak in the views as you sip through the weekend the Montara way.

Looking to take that special experience to the next level, private tours may be booked with Grampians Wine Tours departing Halls Gap, or with Grampians Helicopters available on demand seven days a week from Stawell airport.
