                    Another lovely lunch at Mt Towrong. Great food and wine. Friendly and relaxed. The weather was cold and the fire side table was just what we were looking forward to.

                    My husband & I enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Mount Towrong Vineyard. The weather was not the best- drizzly & cold but our outside seating with the heater next to it made it ok. The service was great & the rustic Italian themed food was good! Definitely worth a visit on a weekend drive away from Melbourne.

                    We booked about 2 weeks in advance to get an indoor table, and then as the weather was good we were able to move outside with our dog. Menu is amazing, all food was brought very quickly, made with local Ingredients and was well presented. Wine by the glass is very reasonable and delicious. We bought bottles to take home too.

                    The staff at Mount Towrong make you feel very welcome the moment you get there and they explain all menu items and wines really well. We had the antipasto plate which was delicious and a good balance of meats, cheese and sides. We also shared the Pear crostata which was to die for. I strongly recommend leaving room for dessert. Nice atmosphere without being pretentious. This was my second visit and I will be back.

                    Mt Towrong was absolutely lovely. All the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Very prompt with offering service and regularly checking up on the table that all needs were being met. The dining space itself was really gorgeous and cosy with the fireplace and all the decorations. The upstairs dining would have a beautiful view and be gorgeous in the summer time! All food was really wonderful and paired well with the wines on offer. The best was the lovely grazing platter. Lots of amazing different items to taste paired with great cheese and cured meats. Overall we thoroughly loved our experience at Mt Towrong Winery and will definitely be back!

I tried the chard and the one that was a combination of the chard and nebiollo that was a sparkling (can't remember the name sorry!). Beautiful place, I will definitely be bringing family and friends there in the future. Thanks so much!

                    We just love coming to this place. Every time we come, everything is gorgeous- staff and great, owners are always there, the wine is superb and the food is delicious. We usually go with friends and everyone we bring there comes away loving it as much as we do. So lucky to have it nearby.

                    What a wonderful place. We felt soo lucky to have got a booking. 8 of us let loose at a hugh table with shared tasting plates and beautiful wine overlooking the vineyard. We are still marveling at the experience. Loved every minute , you made us feel very special. Thankyou

                    We had another amazing luncheon on Sunday. Shoulder of lamb was best ever. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. My favourite place these days. Looking forward to my next visit.

                    Beautiful rustic Italian cuisine with exceptional service. I would recommend that anyone who is in the region should visit the Mount Towrong Vineyard. A true hidden gem.

                    So grateful to Mount Towrong for calling us to say snap lockdown would mean our lunch would have to be cancelled but if we could come earlier they could squeeze us in. We dashed down and had a lovely lunch before 1pm. Highly recommended. :-)

                    Through lock downs & disappointments we finally made it to Mount Towrong Vineyard for a sunny winter lunch for 6. We were delighted with the experience & will definitely be back (4 of us had already been). The choices of sharing platters, excellent wine & good friendly service were above expectation. This is a uniquely designed vineyard, restaurant & cellar door. Stunning buildings that blend into the natural environment plus a wonderful ambience inside & out. We would highly recommend it for any occasion but book ahead as it is very popular. Jo

                    Great food, great service. With an asthmatic wife, the smoke level was a bit high when wood was added and despite that, it was a bit cold, especially when the front pedestrian front door was opened and when the whole door was slid sidways. In winter you need a better egress solution, maybe a clear plastic curtain, rather tacky I know. Some guests were confused where the entrance was.
