Winery
The Yarra Valley truly starts at Rob Dolan Wines. Only 30 minutes from Melbourne, our dog-friendly winery is the perfect place to enjoy cheese and wine, and learn about the Yarra Valley from our Wine Specialists in the Cellar Door.

Rob's philosophy is all about making wine with character; wine with depth which reflects our unique terroir. You'll taste from vineyard sites across the Valley, and learn how location impacts the perfect drop.

Visit us for a wine tasting, brunch, or order some cheese and wine to enjoy while overlooking the vineyard. If you're lucky, you might meet @merlot_thewinedog - our Chief Cuddle Officer - he loves making friends with our visitors!

We absolutely loved our wine tasting and cheese board at Rob Dolan winery. Not only are the wines delicious and very drinkable, but the service was fantastic. So much knowledge and cute little anecdotes shared during our tasting. We left with an armful of wine and full intentions of coming back again and again. Highly recommend putting Rob Dolan on your Yarra Valley list!

Our wine tasting took 90 minutes to complete! Far too long for a tasting of 5 wines. We were just left waiting with an empty glass for long periods of time. Tasting pours were also less than generous considering how long we had to wait in between pours. It wasn’t even very busy.

Fabulous wines, setting and nibble platter all quality products. It was rainy the afternoon we visited but we very happily sat out under the sheltered verandah with lovely big gas heaters. All 4 of us joined the wine club too!

A beautiful, quiet winery, serving delicious cheese platters and award winning wines.
We did the $10 wine tasting and it did not disappoint, the host was fantastic and explained the wines really well, so friendly!
I highly recommend this winery for a chilled afternoon with friends or family.

I am a lover of wine and an addict of cellar door visits. I have visited most of the cellar doors in the YV region. Rob Dolan is the stand out.. service, food, ambience. The recent adherence to health restrictions and safety guidelines are next to none. Service to die for. Feeling valued and welcome - cannot wait to go back. We met up with other guests and formed new friendships. No one rushed us. No one hassled us. Service was well timed and followed through without interruption or annoyance. This place strikes the perfect balance of everything - and then, in the very same breath, it is also outstanding in excellence in absolutely everything. I do not know why I waited so long to get to Rob Dolan - perhaps the name itself didn't quite grab me as a 'winery'... but I was wrong and very happy to have been proven wrong. I will bring many people to this place. I will beat a drum for this place every time there is wine speak. Please, if you love cellar doors; if you love a good drop of wine; if you love the outdoors and the country feel... if you want to be blown away with beauty in every aspect of the word.. please visit Rob Dolan. I can promise you this - you will NOT be disappointed. Accolades to Rob Dolan. More than just a cellar door. More than just good wine. In the words of Molly Meldrum.... 'do yourself a favour and...' visit this amazing winery. No need to think it. No need to wonder. No need to see if you should check another winery out first... this is the place!
