Montalto founders and owners John and Wendy Mitchell initially planned a small vineyard by the coast as a place to relive earlier years spent holidaying with friends in southern France. But John’s love of the outdoors, his interest in viticulture and corporate knowledge soon combined to grow Montalto into one of the Mornington Peninsula’s most popular destinations receiving accolades such as “Best Winery Tourism Destination” from Gourmet Traveller magazine. The wines exhibit true cool climate characteristics and have matched the winery for accolades, being rated 5 stars from James Halliday and receiving multiple awards on the Australian Show circuit.
