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.

                                            The cheese, pork terrine, pinot jelly and ciabatta were delicious. The wine was amazing. The view is beautiful. Highly recommend visiting and staying to eat and drink.

                                            Perfect day trip from Melbourne. We received a voucher as a gift because Rob Dolan wines is dog friendly and we take our puppies everywhere. It was such an lovely venue, the food and wine was delicious. Highly recommend with or with the puppies.

                                            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.

                                            Absolutely loved the bean bag picnic overlooking the vineyard Ordered a cheese box and wine both excellent. My partner and I loved the relaxed feel of the place. Staff where so friendly and the building is beautiful. Would definitely come back again and do it again.

                                            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.

                                            Great place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere, wine, cheese, etc and the amazing service. Highly recommended.

                                            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!

                                            Great day out on the lawn in the bean bags. Well looked after by the Staff who are always friendly.

                                            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.

                                            Service is always warm and lovely and cheese platters are huge! Exceptional views, would just love to see some hot food options on the Menu.
