Dominique Portet

Visit our young but historic estate of Dominique Portet to discover Australian wines crafted with a French sensibility at our elegant cellar door.

About the winery
Set amongst the beautiful rolling vineyards of the Yarra Valley, our recently renovated cellar door is open daily from 10am to 5pm. We would love to welcome you, share what we love to do, and have been doing since 2000 - whether its tastings, tours of the barrel room and winery, or something a little more drawn out. Our charming Bistro draws on our Bordeaux roots to bring you French family classics. We also have a pretty full calendar of family-frindly, social food and wine events throughout the year.

History & Geography
Dominique Portet got his first whiff of wine at one of the world’s most illustrious wine properties: Château Lafite-Rothschild. It was here in Pauillac that his father, André Portet, served as régisseur (vineyard & winery manager). Dominique went on to earn his stripes at Montpellier University of Oenology before perking up morale as wine-buying adviser during compulsory military service. He later spent vintages in the Médoc, Rhône Valley, Provence and with Champagne giant Moët et Chandon, as well as in the Napa Valley at his brother Bernard’s Clos du Val estate. "I found fragrance and structure – most of all the structure reminds me of Bordeaux. The Yarra has a charm, a beauty that engulfs you. The wines are worldly." In 2000 he embarked on his greatest adventure: the Dominique Portet winery in the Yarra Valley.
