An outstanding building and outlook. Pity the service did not match. We had a large group of 13 the service and advise on the offering of portion sizes was also poor We were dealing the Maître de. Food comes in small portions and is over priced.
Wines are very good.
Overall a very disappointing experience

I visited the winery with 4 friends over the weekend and unfortunately came away disappointed. The setting and views from the winery are beautiful however overall the experience was not a good one . The lady in charge was quite rude and when we asked if we could have some steamed wine glasses to enjoy the bottles of wine which we had bought, we were told that only the inside diners were allowed those glasses for safety reasons . I understand that it isn’t a huge issue but when you go somewhere for lunch and spend a considerable amount of money , I would expect management to be a little more compromising , There was also a considerable markup on the cost of wine from the cellar door to the table cost at the winery ( $30 extra to have it at the winery per bottle ) . That is a big corkage price per bottle ! Especially when you consider we sat down to a lunch for 5 people )
Also once seated at the outside table I had booked , we were told that the full menu was only for the inside restaurant and that there was a smaller limited menu for outside . It would have been good to know that at the time of booking .
Except for the manager, the rest of the staff were wonderful , courteous and helpful but overall the female managers uncompromising attitude left us feeling that we probably won’t return .

Beautiful location and friendly staff, but overall a disappointment. Very limited menu and although, as many staff as guests, we had to order via QR code which really let us down. It did not respond to our queries as one of the staff would have done. Eg share plate only had 3 items but we were a party of 4.

Food, although quite good, arrived at different times. Several of tables were so rickety we would have spilt our drinks so had to move.

Hope they can lift their game.

Hi, I'm sorry for this late response, I have only just seen your review! I'm sorry you found your visit to us, overall a disappointment. If you dine inside we offer the full menu and full table service but unfortunately we don't have the staff at the moment to offer this outside as well. This has meant we have had to compromise and instead have QR code ordering outside. We do state this on our website and on our booking platform. I will get someone to look at the outside tables this week and check them all, as they definitely shouldn't be rickety. I hope you will visit us again soon. Kind regards, Polly Ritchie

A beautiful location with stunning views. We booked (recommend you book) to dine inside. The menu is small but the food is excellent. We had a shared charcuterie board with some Delatite Sparkling rise….excellent.
The staff are extremely welcoming and the service was fantastic.
We loved to the patio for desert and just admired the open fields.
We did not do any wine tasting but I am told the wines are great.
Would definitely visit any time you are in the area.

Midweek wine tasting in comfort with informed staff. The lunch offered small and large sharing plates.
We enjoyed an authentic pumpkin curry with all the traditional trimmings and a side order of char grilled seasonal greens. All delicious.

Have visited twice on a Monday over the past month. Absolutely magnificent views looking out over the vineyards towards Mt Bulla, Stirling and Timbertop. Excellent riesling accompanied by freshly baked focaccia bread with olive oil, balsamic and dukkah.
Staff were very friendly and happily talked with us about the wines and the winery itself.
Easy to spend an afternoon. Wish I had a driver!

Delatite Delights is a wine tasting experience matched with small “bites”. Of the 5 wines we sampled, I found the 2022 Estate ‘Pet Nat’ the most interesting and different from other, perhaps more traditional, wines. The artisan bread and dukkah was a good way to start the tasting and all the other bites were delicious too. I would recommend the Delights as a pleasant way to try out some of the many wines that Delatite has on offer. However, some may find the price, at $60 pp, a bit high.

5/5 fabulous festival celebrating the end of the grape harvest. The wild fire feast was incredible on Friday night. Saturday morning beekeeping workshop followed by best spaghetti vongole on the planet in Delatite restaurant. Beautifully organised in the most magnificent location overlooking Mt Buller.

We were recently in Australia and met family for lunch and some wine at this wonderful place. I loved the atmosphere and the view outside. My cousin and I shared the Spaghetti con Vongole and it was the best I have ever had (being Italian I am always hesitant to order Italian food at a restaurant). I think we soaked up every drop of sauce with our bread. My husband had the Troat and he said it was amazing. The wines were very nice and we could have spent all afternoon on the patio enjoying the wines. I wish we didn't live so far away as I would love to return there again and again.
