Samson Hill Winery and Restaurant at Kangaroo Ground, 28 kilometres north east of Melbourne CBD, was established in 1998 on a spectacular location overlooking the City of Melbourne, the surrounding mountains to Kinglake, the Dandenong's and much more.

The views are second to none and the clean air is plentiful. The concept of the founding family was to strive for quality only and develop full bodied rich reds and crisp fruity whites. Wines that can be enjoyed immediately but may also be kept in cellar for many years and would mature beautifully.

The varieties grown on the property are, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Verdelho. From these the founders have produced a full bodied Shiraz, a bold Pinot Noir, a delicate Rose and two varieties from the Verdelho - a sweet and a dry, both with the same bold fruity, floral nose and crisp melon characters (very popular).

The Cellar door is open for tastings daily and meals are also available. The staff are friendly and only too willing to chat about the wine or recommend other places of interest for tourists.

Enjoy a lovingly prepared feast from the A-la-carte menu for lunch or dinner while sitting in a quaint restaurant overlooking the Melbourne skyline.
