The perfect alternative to the more commercial wineries for a relaxing lunch or coffees. Not a tour bus in sight - instead families bringing the little ones to sit on the sunny terrace or play on the grass. Couples enjoying the charcuterie platters and quiches and trying the house wines. Very picturesque.

Medhurst don't offer their reserve wines for tasting which is a shame - since you pay for the tasting anyway. Might not have the volume. The standard wines were ok without being exceptional given their price point.

If you're looking for a peaceful place to relax, have a coffee or bite to eat, this is it. The atmosphere takes peaceful to a new level. The wines are nothing special, but the view and atmosphere are!

Excellent tasting experience. Friendly service, beautiful cellar door with cafe, and amazing view. Menu looked tasty, wines were yummy, vibe was relaxed and inviting. Worth the stop.

Called here for a wine tasting and some lunch. Met by Bidelia who made our experience - very welcoming and chatty. Great front person! The wines were okay - a couple were more enjoyable than the others. Had a seafood platter (they call them paddles for some reason) which was very nice - the whole place was a little more up-market than we would normally visit (we prefer smaller boutique wineries as you can generally get to meet the wine maker) - actually our experience through the Yarra area gives the impression that even the smaller wineries have spent a fortune on their cellar doors - as above we prefer more rustic with the emphasis on the actual wines rather than the decor. However, Medhurst was extremely attractive, the wines were acceptable, and the food was good. Bidelia proved the adage that the person makes the experience - she definitely made us feel the trip was worth it - if you're looking for good food, acceptable wines, and great views and location, Medhurst is worth a visit

A last minute decision and a search in trip advisor helped us to find this gem. A beautiful view, extremely helpful staff, wonderful platters and lovely wine made it a great afternoon in the sun enjoying a late summer day in Melbourne' s Autumn! You can bring your own chairs to sit on in the shade and plenty of lawn for the kids to play on. Highly recommend it. Just a pity they had run out of vanilla slices :-(
