Overview

Discover magnificent stone buildings reminiscent of Tuscany at this boutique, family-owned winery in an Australian bush setting. 45 minutes from central Melbourne, 35 minutes from Airport. Sample high quality estate produced wines: dry, sweet, sparkling and fortified. Enjoy light,rustic Italian style food with a glass of wine. Fire in winter, courtyard overlooking bush and vineyard in summer. Use Google maps as this one isn't clear! NB There are two Manuka roads that appear to access the winery. Enter ONLY at the Manuka Rd at the Panton Hill end of Cherry Tree Road and NOT the one 1/2 way along Cherry Tree Road.

Stunning location with beatiful rustic buildings. Staff were friendly and helpful even though they were very busy with lots of customers. I enjoyed trying and learning about the wines and sitting outside with our desserts afterwards was most relaxing. Will return for sure!More

Only 25 minutes from home, we have found our new favourite winter weekend lunch spot! The owners are great characters with warm hearts, their reds warm the heart and the roaring open fire warms the body.

Rustic, carved into the bush: For twenty years the Panton Hill Vineyard has been my little secret, but now the secret is apparently out judging by the crowds; I guess the time for a review is now. Teunis makes lovely big red wines, and not...More
