Panton Hill Vineyard and Winery

Now OPEN For Food and Wine on SATURDAYS and PUBLIC HOLIDAYS and on SUNDAYS guests bring their own picnic lunch to enjoy in our beautiful surrounds with Panton Hill drinks, and of course with wine being the focus. Expect excellent tastings of our wide range of wines every day we are open!

You can drop by to purchase wines outside the normal open times by texting or calling Dorothy on 0408 101 523 and setting up a time.

During this unique time, when a trip to Southern Europe is off the table, you can still take a drive to Panton Hill Winery through beautiful, rolling country side. There you'll discover magnificent stone buildings reminiscent of Tuscany, but in a bush setting, just 45 minutes from central Melbourne and 35 minutes from Melbourne Airport. Enjoy the warm welcome you'll receive in this family founded and run boutique winery where wine is grown and vintaged on site, using traditional methods.

When you arrive, you'll have the opportunity to sample dry, sweet, sparkling and fortified wine varieties and also learn as much or as little as you'd like, about tasting and enjoying wine.

Along with some lovely wine, you will be able to enjoy  light, rustic, Mediterranean style food which can vary with the seasons and includes as much of our own produce as possible. There are plenty of places to sit and relax with friends and family. Maybe it will be near the huge open fire inside in winter or outside in the lovely courtyard area overlooking bush, vineyard, gardens and in finer weather.Remember to try out our relaxing Picnic  Sundays where our kitchen is closed and you bring the food! Whatever the choice, you won't want to leave.

We can accommodate special dietary needs, are wheel chair friendly and allow pets providing they leave no messages. Well behaved kids are welcome but we prefer they don't pick the flowers or drop things in the fish ponds and fountain. 

Groups are welcome by arrangement. Panton Hill Winery is a great place for smaller family celebrations. It is a photographers' paradise and we regularly have wedding photography, short films, video clips and advertising photo  shoots here. Hope to see you soon.

Open 11am-5pm Weekends and Public Holidays.

At other times it's best to ring to arrange a time to visit.

Location MEL 263 F8. There are two Manuka Roads leading to the winery. Choose the longer one closest to the Panton Hill Township, irrespective of what your GPS tells you!
