Overview
More
We're real people with real vineyards making real wines and serving real food in our restaurant. We are lucky to own one of the most beautiful little cellar doors and restaurants in Victoria, dating back to the 1860s. I'm Mandy Jones, a 5th generation winemaker, a modernist in my approach to handcrafting wines from grapes grown by my brother, Arthur. Our wines have power and brightness of fruit that could only be made from our very own patch of Rutherglen dirt. Jones Winery Restaurant is headed up by Chef Briony Bradford who's "nose to tail" approach to food has been influenced by working with 3 star Michelin chefs in the UK. Briony loves to push the flavour boundaries using classic French techniques with her own modern twist.

The tasting area and restaurant share a rustic, cosy space at Jones vineyard. The staff are welcoming and accommodating. The food is excellent, prepared by an innovative chef. A must if you are in the Rutherglen region.

We went here because it was supposed to be a beautiful winery. And it did look lovely and the restaurant was packed. We just wanted to do some tastings and the lady serving us was just sour and not friendly. We wouldn’t go back.
