Travelling aimlessly around the peninsula with mum looking for a coffee location we came across Montaltos. After convincing my teetotaller mother that wineries are great for food we decided to have a light lunch. Mint tea, coffee, cheese platter and lavender tart were consumed in a delightful surrounding. Visiting on a Tuesday out of school holidays we were surprised that the cafe was so busy. Obvious the locals know where to go. Will definitely be back

Headed to Montalto to celebrate a birthday and wasn't disappointed. Service impeccable, ambiance lovely, and the food simply delicious. The flavours were all well balanced of each dish with some hidden surprises. I can't wait to return!

Came here and great timing the Annual Montalto Sculpture Prize Exhibition is on running from 26 Feb to 29 Oct 2017.
This is a 1km walk that loops around approx 23 Finalists on exhibit and 29 permanent collections - allow at least 30mins to really enjoy and appreciate. Bring a glass of wine as you go around. Well this is the bonus after enjoying an excellent lunch at the Piazza Cafe - the food is amazing; complex multi dimension flavours that work well together - so great! Most of the greens and herbs are grown on site from the garden. We ordered the Napoli pizza, spiced roasted pumpkin and bratwurst with cabbage and mustard dressing - OMG so good! Washed down with Pinot Gris and Pinos Gris late harvest after. So satisfying.
Relaxing and makes you feel fab with the views around you, the Vineyard in the backdrop.
The staff are so good and very attentive, knowledgeable and engaging. You can feel the personal touch in amidst the busy lunch time and yes, the place is packed!
Also wine tasting at the cellar door - A$5 per person to try all the available ones at the time.

We had dinner tonight at Montalto.We opted for the 2 course $70 a head menu.Food was well put together but small servings and odd side dishes such as the root vegetable celeriac and mini potatoes.The wine we selected Montalto Estate Pinot was billed at $80 but I think has a list price of circa $40.Its a bit rich to mark up your own wines at circa 100%.The restaurant was nearly full and clearly popular.However,a better dining experience would be Paringa Winery(very close in Red Hill)which has a 5 course degustation menu with matching wines at a cheaper price,being $80 for food and $40 for wines on a per head basis.For what it's worth,the food at Paringa is more sophisticated and adventurous.

recently had a friends weekend away to Mornington with my girlfriends so we decided to visit a winery for lunch.We decided to check out Monalto Winery in Redhill and wow the view is great and their wines with a great drop.Great place for a large group or couples.We ordered the famous pizza and my goodness it was the best pizza and highly recommend this place.
