De Bortoli Winery and Restaurant is one of my favourite wineries to visit in the Yarra Valley. Here is a great restaurant, great cheese room and excellent picnic facilities.
De Bortoli has an impressive fine dining restaurant serving great dishes in the Italian tradition. The restaurant overlooks sweeping views of the vineyards.
De Bortoli also boasts a superb cheese room. The cheese platter is excellent value at only $16 and you get a fair amount of quality cheese (and can I say a decent amount of crackers). The service by the staff was engaging and some of the best I've ever had at a Cellar Door.
De Bortoli offers tasting for $5 but you get it back on purchase.
There are gourmet products to be purchased. I like a winery that gives a bit when it comes to cellar door. De Bortoli are one of those wineries that always seem to have a few discounted wines at cellar door.
I was able to score some amazing reserve release Sauvignon. They offer a huge range of wines on tasting. One must try the iconic Noble Riesling dessert wine on tasting for a couple of bucks extra. An incredible wine that has had legendary status for decades.
Check out these views at De Bortoli. You can also enjoy a playground for the kids next to these lawns. One of my favourite wineries in the Yarra Valley.
