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, or order some cheese and wine from the Cellar Door which you are welcome 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!

  • Bean Bag Picnic

    Multiple dates available
    Enjoy a laid-back wine and soak up the sunshine on our winery lawn. Grab a double person beanbag from our Cellar Door and claim a spot on the grass overlooking the vineyard. Be sure to have a look around while you’re here and explore the gardens – although once you’re relaxed in a beanbag, we can tell you - it’s hard to get back up! We'll also pack your wine and cheese picnic style for you. Please note the bean bags are not weather protected and there is no contingency plan for bean bag bookings. In the event of poor weather, cancellations and reservations are encouraged or you're more than welcome to come in and pick up your wine + cheese packs to enjoy an at home picnic.
  • Patio Table | Wine + cheese

    Multiple dates available
    Let one of our Wine-Specialists run you through a table-side wine tasting for $15pp or purchase a bottle and cheese board to enjoy on your visit. Your seat will be outside on the patio, under shelter and next to heating. All bookings may be seated on high tables, contact us directly if you require low seating and we will do our best to accommodate you.

                                            As usual my Aunt and I spent a wonderful afternoon at Rob Dolan, sitting on the verandah chatting, eating and clinking our glasses full of fabulous wine. Thanks to Holly for looking after us so brilliantly with her wine knowledge and sense of fun.

                                            Outstanding. I keep going back because it’s the perfect escape, not too close and not too far. Brilliant service, views and foods. Can’t wait to go back! The perfect stress release.

                                            Enjoyed lunch on Patio. Attentive helpful staff. Small cheese platter good but maybe smaller serves of 4 cheeses rather than two large chunks of 2.

                                            Beautiful setting looking over winery. Cheese and charcuterie items ( all prepackaged and served as such), only. No other food on offer. Quality of produce is of very high standard. You can crake home what you don’t eat. Wind is stunning. Opened bottle can be taken home. Merlot the choccy Labrador is a delightful host.

                                            The only down side was a large group turn up an hour in and sat right next to us and basically took over the area. There was lots of other space for them to be in.

                                            Everything was lovely for our patio wine and cheese lunch. The only negative was the weather as it was cold and being outside wasn't as nice as it would have been if the day was warmer (out of everyone's control). The outdoor heaters really didn't suffice. The wine was great as usual and the large cheese platter was delicious and plentiful for 4 people. We had a lovely time despite the wintery spring Melbourne weather!

                                            Wonderful place to catch up with friends and sample delicious wines and cheeses. Highly recommend the tastings. Service was friendly. We had a table on the veranda and enjoyed the view.

                                            Great place for a wine tasting and cheese board! Food, wine and staff were all great! This was the second time I have been here and it was just as good as the first. The only thing I could fault was that I wasn't asked and there wasn't a lot of time to order a glass of wine in addition to the tasting, because we took too long to get through the tastings! Looking forward to our next visit.

                                            Always a enjoy my visit to this beautiful Winery. Welcomed on arrival, shown to our table. Immediate attention from Scott and the beautiful ladies working alongside him., drinks ordered, Cheese platter choices made...And relax....oh and did I mention my puppy Shiraz who came along and met other pups and dogs also visiting. very dog friendly here ... all were so well behaved and fussed over as much as us Humans! It was of course a Winter's Afternoon but there was ample heat from the large wall heaters on the verandah. The wines are all excellent as are the local cheeses. I'll be back very soon........

                                            A great afternoon! As the first wine we were recommended was not to our liking we were not charged for it but I have to say Robs white label cab sav was, as expected, a lovely drop!

                                            The wine, food and location make this a fantastic venue to visit, but it's the staff and ambience that really make this place. Very relaxed, attentive, and friendly, the staff make it feel like your second home. They were very welcoming of our young boisterous puppy, and they made us feel really comfortable throughout. It'll be a new regular.

                                            Lovely afternoon spent with friends. Do recommend that the winery ceases using cardboard picnic boxes and presents their yummy cheeses as platters. Better for the environment and would look a lot nicer. The service was excellent though!!

                                            Very friendly and welcoming staff who were happy to be flexible with our requirements for our grazing platter. Enjoyed their wines out on the patio and look forward to returning.
