Winery
Kellybrook is a winery set in a vineyard, garden and bush oasis only 45 minutes from Melbourne. It was the first licensed winery in the Yarra Valley and is operated by the Kelly family.

There is always a warm welcome in our cellar door and our team will give you a experience to remember. An extensive range of award winning wines are made on site, primarily from grapes grown on the property. Wine styles include sparkling wines, Chardonnay, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet.

Seated wine or cider tastings are available for up to 6 people. Take away sales or enjoy drinks overlooking the vineyard, in the gardens or by the fire.

Cheese and local produce grazing boards are available in the cellar door or gardens. As we are not a restaurant, selected food items come with cutlery, plates and boards for assembly at your table.

The Kelly family has been producing authentic ciders on the property for decades. These include Kelly Brothers ciders, bottle fermented cider and apple brandy.

Kelly Brook is a stunning venue and the ambiance is beautiful. However, I can't say the same about the service. The service of the staff was extremely unfriendly, not helpful and did not attend to our needs. The staff from the moment of greeting us made us feel very uncomfortable about having children and overall I didn't want to stay at their venue which is very disappointing. The service was slow, the attitude of the staff was poor and I would recommend the staff complete a course in customer service. The wines however were amazing but because of the customer service I wouldn't come back.

Hello Alissa, We are truly sorry to hear how you felt about bringing children to our cellar door as we do welcome visitors of all ages, including children. We certainly did not mean to make you feel uncomfortable (just wanted to outline the need for supervision while in our gardens). We are disappointed to hear that we did not provide our usual level of service and will work to improve. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the wines. Thank you for visiting and for your feedback. Jenny Kelly

I have been to Kellybrook a few times and was lucky enough to recently have my wedding there! It is the most beautiful, welcoming spot for a few casual drinks and nibble. If you stroll through their garden there is a stunning old oak tree that you can have a picnic under and the winery itself is a lovely backdrop for a drink on the balcony of the cellar door. They serve grazing boards that you can make up with local produce and their wine is amazing! Can not fault them. Thank you to Jenny and the staff you are incredible.

We had a lovely time sitting outside and doing a fabulous wine tasting followed by some lovely cheese, meats and nibbles. The lady who did our tasting (apologies but I can’t remember her name! She teaches locally as well) was just wonderful and looked after us very well. Thanks Kellybrook for a beautiful Sunday afternoon experience.

I booked a table on Open Table thinking that I would take my elderly parents out for lunch. Upon arrival we were advised that they don't have a restaurant as such but could do wine and charcuterie boards so we decided to stay. We were served wine and give a basked with goods to open up and serve ourselves. It was a very very costly 'meal'. Had I truly known what we needed to do, we would have found another venue to eat at.

The waitress did suggest some other places to eat, however, did also suggest the cheese platter and meats.

It was not clear that we were booking a table for a wine tasting.

Danielle, we are very sorry to hear that your visit to our winery was not what you were expecting. We do try to communicate clearly our grazing boards arrangement and have a copy of our grazing foods list on OpenTable and our website. The menu that you found online was very old and on another website which, I believe, added to the confusion. We are working to have this removed. OpenTable refers to all venues as "restaurants" which adds to the misunderstanding. Please accept our apology. J Kelly

It was a disappointing experience with poor service. Most items on the menu weren’t available due to a fridge malfunction the previous night and we were told the beer we wanted wasn’t available when my husband had seen it in their drinks fridge!
We were ignored for too long on arrival despite 2 waiters who had seen us arrive on the doorstep!
All in all a poor experience. Despite it being a local winery we won’t be back

Carol, we are very sorry to hear that you had this experience on your visit. We do try to greet and seat visitors as promptly as possible so we apologise that this was not the case when you arrived. We did have a problem with one fridge the night before so two cheeses were unavailable. This should have been mentioned before ordering and we slipped up. I did try a few times to call to discuss your concerns as this is not how we normally operate and we would love to have another chance. J Kelly

Lovely way to get out of the city for the afternoon. Beautiful vineyard backdrop, excellent customer service and a wide range of different wines (sparkling, white and red) to choose from. Recommend the $10 wine tasting to try 5 different varieties - we ended up buying several bottles to take home and as gifts as there were so many we liked :)
