Good wine, simple quality food, stunning architecture and being one of Melbourne’s closest wineries make Panton Hill Winery a popular place to visit on the weekend. All visitors are welcome. Just remember we want to deliver a personalized, enjoyable experience for everyone, so booking is recommended for numbers over 4 if you are wanting to eat as well as taste wine. With wine tasting alone, its helpful to book for numbers over 6. The peak times of lunch between 12:30 and 2:00 PM don’t always allow us to do as thorough a wine tasting as we can do outside those times. Panton Hill Winery will never be a big volume place…the wine is traditionally grown and made, the food home cooked…and we can only fit so many staff in our kitchen and so many pizzas in the oven at any one time. Expect to find a place where you can realy learn about wine and somewhere where you’ll enjoy relaxing with friends or family over some simple but good food and excellent wine. Forgive us if very occasionally we have to tell you that the wait for food will be considerable, because of all the “ walk ins”, or that we can’t take any more bookings as we don’t want to compromise the service to those who have booked or already arrived. This only happens sometimes, and we will warn you. At other times you’ll luck out , and the place will be nice and quiet and you’ll wonder why more people don’t know about this hidden gem. Insiders know that Saturdays are sometimes a bit quieter than Sundays. See you soon.
Panton Hill will have our huge open fire burning to warm you as you taste 9 varieties of wine including our delicious sparkling Blanc de Noir (see wine page on web site for tasting notes).
There will be antipasti, Brie baked in local honey and new season Vic. Walnuts, a rustic Goats Cheese,potato and Pancetta dish, as well as an assortment of pizzas from our Italian Pizza Oven. Afterwards try an assortment of warm winter desserts as well as our signature Tiramisu containing Panton Hill Aromatica Liqueur.We will have some fine cheese and liqueur combinations too!!
If your group is large, it is a help if you let us know you’re coming for lunch this weekend!
