Making wine is, and always has been, a family affair for the Portets. The Portet family holds possibly an unmatched record in the Australian wine industry. Dominique is the ninth generation in his family to be committed to winemaking, yet he is the first to establish a winery and label bearing the family name. Now, as tenth generation winemaker Ben Portet returns to his family’s Yarra Valley winery, the legacy continues.Before you head to Coldstream, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Coldstream road trip planner, to make sure you see all that Coldstream has to offer, including Dominique Portet Winery.

Awesome restaurant and winery offering a range of wines to taste. Personal team welcomed us and made us feel like we were the only guests in the winery. The wines from ready to drink selection to a range of wines to cellar, if you like wine, you will love this place. A must see on a trip to the Yarra Valley. Thanks for a great experience. Cheers 🥂
Love the new space. It's bloody loud but suits the place well. The food is excellent and you don't want to go past the crab coconut salad. Possibly my favourite salad ever. Staff are great as well.
