Not only has the Portet family been making wine for ten generations, but their beginnings were at Chateau Lafite in Bordeaux, which provided them with a wine philosophy lesson like no other. Today with tenth generation winemaker Ben Portet guiding the family craft in the winery, he is maintaining its place deeply seated in Australian soil but with respect for the combined experiences of his forbears. Dominique Portet specialises in sparkling wine, sauvignon blanc, rosé, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon.
The cellar door has a French country feel, and the terrace café serves light foods from the winemaker’s table, with great views of the ranges. They also sell La Boutique French-style products. Wine quality is exemplary across the board, and the serene surround landscape is the Yarra Valley at its best.
The Dominique Portet Winery has a Mediterranean atmosphere. Simple lunches are enjoyed, wine tastings, barrel tastings, vintage tours are all part of a busy winery. Their cellar door is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. They have tours and tastings to offer you for your enjoyment.
