Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove

Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove vegetable garden (view from our table)
We went on a day trip to the Mornington Peninsula today. Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove was recommended to us by a friend so we started in Red Hill to check it out. We had such a nice time I had to share.

It is a beautiful vineyard and they have an enviable veggie garden. I was madly taking photos. We had a perfect day. It was sunny and warm - we were expecting to be freezing so were rugged up and had to deposit our coats and scarves in the car before walking around the estate.

We ate in the piazza - apparently the restaurant is a bit pricey and we were just after a casual lunch. They serve amazing pizzas in the piazza and you get to look out at the garden and vineyard. Hubby ordered the duck pizza with Montalto Pinot Noir and I had the buffalo mozzarella pizza with the Montalto riesling. We savoured every mouthful.

After we ate we walked around the estate. There are a few trails to follow that we were able to walk along.

Massive zucchini growing in their garden!

The piazza is a beautiful, family friendly area. We were actually thinking it might be a nice venue for a nice low-key birthday lunch. We will definitely be back!
