De Bortoli

Victoria | Yarra Valley

Our Review

Arguably the most successful of all Yarra Valley wineries, not only in terms of the sheer volume of production but also the quality of its wines. It is run by the husband-and-wife team of Leanne De Bortoli and Steve Webber, but owned by the De Bortoli family. The wines are released in 3 quality (and price) groups: at the top Single Vineyard, then Estate Grown and in 3rd place Villages. Small-volume labels increase the offer with Riorret Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, Melba, La Boheme, an aromatic range of Yarra Valley wines and Vinoque, enabling trials (at the commercial level) of new varieties and interesting blends in the Yarra. The BellaRiva Italian varietal wines are sourced from the King Valley, and Windy Peak from Victorian regions including the Yarra, King Valley and Heathcote. The PHI wines are made from the 7.5ha Lusatia Park Vineyard established by the Shelmerdine family in the Yarra Valley, purchased in November ’15, and from Heathcote. Rutherglen Estates was added to the De Bortoli portfolio in 2019. Exports to all major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY


Our Cellar Door Sales and Cheese Shop is open every day from 10am to 5pm.

Cellar Door Sales provides a welcoming environment with historic family photos and old winery equipment.

We also have our own Cheese maturation room whereby we mature Australian and Overseas cheese in a wonderful cave-like environment.

The name Locale (pron Low-car-leh), reflects not only the De Bortoli family's Italian heritage but also the restaurant's philosophy of sourcing the best local, seasonal and organic produce. Open Thursday to Monday for lunch, and Saturday for dinner from 6.30pm
