The Monichino Family Estate is highly regarded for its award-winning vintages. The vineyard was founded by Carlo Monichino in 1962, becoming a winery in 1972. Katunga is known as one of the oldest wine growing regions in Australia dating back to the 1880's.

Enjoy a little slice of Italy in the heart of the Goulburn Valley with over 27 varieties of wine on offer, specialising in the Italian varietals of Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Barbera.

Visitors will be charmed by the friendly, relaxed atmosphere and attractive setting with an extensive range of wines available for tasting in the cellar door open seven days a week. Try the regional farmhouse cheese platters available every day with a glass of Carlo's museum 40 year old Liqueur Muscat.

Tempt your tastebuds with the modern European lunch menu offered at Monichino Winery's own Cafe Tramontino, open Wednesday to Sunday. Executive chef Ryan is passionate about using quality local ingredients and produce to create divine dishes. The name Tramontino comes from the early days of the winery's existence when Carlo arrived and decided to name his vineyard Tramontino Vineyard, which translates from Italian as "little sunset".

Monichino Winery is a picturesque setting for your wedding or next function with the appropriate ambience of the winery amid the towering barrels in our iconic barrel room with the rich nostalgic aroma of past vintages. Barbecue facilities are available in the well laid out picnic grounds.

Be sure not to miss out on the Monichino Wines' Farmgate to Plate degustation dinner held on March 12, 2016, as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.

Situated in the heart of the Goulburn Valley, Katunga, located in northern Victoria and is only a two and a half hour drive north of Melbourne. Please book via the website.
