Food, wine and functions


Located within the City of Melton is a haven of award winning wineries. The rich volcanic soil, links to neighbouring wine regions and back drop of extensive vineyards, grassland and waterways is a hidden treasure of Victoria. Visitors have the opportunity to experience sample world class wines at the vineyard cellar door.

Melton City is part of the Sunbury Wine Region. Wine has been made since the 1860's in the cool climate of this region. Historically, the principal grape variety has been shiraz; however, recently chardonnay, riesling, semillon, traminer, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, and some Italian varietals have been planted. At these vineyards, you can meet the vigneron, and learn about the craft of creating the unique style and flavours of our region. The fertile volcanic soils of the Western Plains provide our vignerons with an ideal setting to produce award winning flavours in their wines.
