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!

Experiences

  • 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.
  • Flights + Bites

    $55.00 per person

    1 July - 1 Aug 2022
    Escape the cold with our new Flights & Bites experience, served in the cosy Farmhouse. The Farm’s Head Chef Anthony Cutajar has curated four delicious plates to complement a flight of four Rob Dolan premium wines. A Wine Specialist will talk you through your flight, with the option to upgrade to ‘museum’ which includes wines up 12 years old.

    Rob Dolan winery is very scenic and beautiful. I think we came on the wrong day as a wedding was being set up / guests arriving during our booking. We are sure it is a beautiful and fun winery on the weekend. Only complaint is the presentation of the cheese board. Cheese came in plastic wrappers and loaf of bread came not cut up and very hard. When everything was unwrapped we had to scatter the plastic wrappers on the table. Was awkward.

    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.

    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!
