Just had lunch with friends at Locale restaurant at De Bortoli Wines Yarra Valley. Really nice meals, good service and nice ambience. Not cheap, set prices of $70 for 2 courses, $85 for 3 courses (our choice). Recommend a try.

My wife and I had an outstanding wine tasting and dining experience at De Bortoli with 2 of our friends. Booking the lunch and wine tasting was very simple. We arrived on time and were immediately taken to a tasting table by our host David....He provided us with an outstanding tasting experience, varying from the standard tasting list as he discerned our preferences. De Bortoli has a good range of wines and it was easy to find quite a few that we really liked. We then moved upstairs to the restaurant where the excellent service continued as we were served a delicious meal. Having decided our mains, I went back to discuss with David in the cellar door what wine would be best to try with the food. We had an excellent red blend. Starters, mains and desserts were excellent. After we finished lunch, we moved back to the cellar door to make some purchases and David insisted on us tasting some of the premium reds that he thought we might like - as a result he "upsized" our purchases but we were very happy to do so.More

We had lunch here that was purchased via a Red Balloon gift voucher. The menu was great, the staff were fantastic - friendly and knowledgable and we loved the food and wines. Service was faultless. Highly recommended. Thank you very much.

Had lunch here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The food, wine & service was excellent, but like everything else in the Yarra Valley a bit pricey.

Special Mother's Day lunch with daughter on Monday 1pth May 2021 I have not been before but my daughter and partner have been a few times and love it as their special place. We arrived and were greeted by a staff member (Jervis, sorry if...spelling is wrong) and a big smile. He showed us to a table for two in the window surrounded by trees with little wrens flying back and forth. We had the 2 course meal plus the bread with oil and butter, my daughter has special dietary needs and this was no trouble as chef is very considerate of people with special dietary needs. I had the Cone Bay barramundi, lentils, cavolo nero, preserved lemon, followed by A selection of cheeses, served with fresh fruit, fruit paste, candied walnuts and flatbread crackers, a glass of Syrah and Soy latte to finish off, delicious! My daughter had a special dish cooked by the chef, which was gluten free pasta with vegetables and a special sauce that she is able to eat, followed by Affogato Espresso, vanilla gelato, black noble one, a glass of Frangelico liqueur. On leaving we both received 2 x small bottles of wine in a presentation bag which was a delightful surprise. I would recommend going to visit De Bortoli Wines Restaurant if you are looking for good food, excellent 5 star service, beautiful ambience and relaxing view from inside looking out, some lovely music in the background just added to the day.More

Received a gift voucher for a 3 course Italian degustation lunch and was not disappointed. The ambience, greeting, presentation of food was spectacular. We left it to our friendly waiter Tony to match the wines with each course and he was so spot on. Was...not rushed and a good rest between each course.More

What a wonderful experience! Apparently the second largest family owned winery, De Bertoli instills passion and beauty into their wines. Although they are known for their Noble One dessert wine they have an assortment of top shelf gorgeous wines. Gail was amazing keeping up with...all of our questions we had about the wine as our tasting began. Once other customers came along she got very busy and Joe graciously took over our tasting and went above and beyond with his knowledge of even the specific clones of the Pinot Noir grapes that they have growing. We can’t wait to enjoy our amazing bottles we got. If you enjoy Noble One the Noble One Black is a must try and if you are a true wine lover then the premium Lusatia Pinot Noir will blow you away.More
