About
Dominique Portet Winery has a touch of French tradition in it's wines! Ben Portet is a tenth generation winemaker with his roots in Australia and that of his Father from the Medoc area, Bordeaux, in France . The wines are great and to be enjoyed easily, the Sparkling Rose and rose a hit. Try the cabernet sauvignon and Heathcote shiraz. The very simple Winemaker's cafe with delicious baguettes, Mediterranean tarts and French chicken pies are always ready or Monte coffee with a home made cakes! The La Boutique homewares are easy browsing and add a bit of enjoyment. The tour et detours, are well worth while if you are after a learning experience.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tried to have some lunch, ordered 40 minutes ago some oysters and a duck Terrine. No need to cook anything so don’t understand why it take that long. Was told my order is in the queue. At the need we go the food and it was tasty. I like the wine from there but lunch will be eaten somewhere else next time as it was a waste of time.

Had a beautiful wine tasting and even better lunch. The staff at Dominique were knowledgeable and really helpful. It is beautiful location that leads to a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon. You must try the Rose it’s one of the best!!

We live on the fringe of the Yarra Valley and on a pleasant Sunday we thought we would visit one of the wineries we had not visited before. Frankly, we are unlikely to visit it again. We paid $15 each for the privilege, a price not refundable on purchase. First we waited until the salespeople had moved the previous couple on. We were limited to a taste of six wines from their range. We were guided away from a couple of entry level wines at around $25 into the next bracket at $40+ and finally shown a $70 per bottle drop. They even had a $250 bottle at the bottom of the sheet – not for tasting. Yeah, I’m a sucker and came home with two bottles that cost me more than $100 including the 10-15 minute “tasting experience”.
Of course wineries are not all like that. Previously I went to a small family winery also in the Valley and had a great time with the people there. I came home happy with several good bottles at a fair price.

Was disappointed to return to DP today after nearly 12 months and be asked to pay $30 for two tastings.

Upon purchasing a bottle the amount (at least one tasting) isn’t refunded against the purchase.

We both noticed that their bottle prices have increased nearly 40%.

Additionally, the staff member operating the tasting today was incredibly rude. I was shocked at how someone so young could be so condescending when seeing us come in and asking what we were here for, then upon being told for a tasting he expected us to say no to the fee.

Won’t be back.

Having to pay the tasting fee of $10pp even though you spend $140 on wine put a 'bad taste in my mouth', pardon the pun, otherwise very nice wine tasting, won't be back.

The most beautifully balanced meal I’ve had in my life!! I could die a happy man right now knowing I’ve had culinary perfection! Tried the single vineyard chardy which I could easily get addicted to, and the service was great!!

We visited here as part of a full day wine tour and this was one of the last stops. It’s a great place with fantastic views over the Yarra Valley. We had the tasting experience with a very knowledgable guy and we purchased a great bottle of Chardonnay to take away with us. Would highly recommend a visit to this spot. Beautiful

Stopped in on a Friday afternoon just for a charcuterie board and a couple of glasses of wine. My wife and myself had the Rose. Really great wine. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was absolutely lovely. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted a glass off the Pinot Noir or the Rose. Without me asking she said I’ll get you a sample of the Pinot. The setting is beautiful. I purchased a couple bottles of wine. I’ve visited a number of times over the years and really love stopping in when I go to the Yarra Valley. I was given a free jar of French mustard also. ( I hope I don’t get anyone in trouble for this nice act.)

Quel rip off! $10 each for the most miserly tastings. So $40 for less than the equivalent of a glass each, and one only drank sparkling, so even less for her. Bought 6 bottles - no deduction. Been there 5 times in the last 8 years, and each time the experience has deteriorated. Time to leave DP, and may be the whole Yarra Valley, to the bus tours. A bientôt pas.
