Montara Wines is captivating with its panorama of plains, mountains, vines and old-world charm of the Ararat gold rush days. Situated 200 kilometres west of Melbourne with a dramatic backdrop of the rugged sandstone Grampians mountain ranges, it is a feast for the eyes and the spirit.

Established in 1970, Montara Wines is today owned by the Stapleton family. This dynamic group of six siblings has given Montara a youthful exuberance, where tradition meets a new era of winemaking.

Montara's wines are 100% estate grown and truly express the elegant, intense fruit characteristics reflective of the cool climate Grampians region. Wines include Chardonnay, Chardonnay/Pinot Noir sparkling, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. They are available for purchase in cellar door or online.

The Montara Cellar Door Cafe offers a range of local produce, as well as coffee and tea.
