If you’re looking for the perfect modern Mornington Peninsula wedding venue, you need to check out Montalto in Red Hill South. It’s got everything a modern wedding venue needs – divine wine, a stunning interior and exterior, rolling vineyard, plenty of room for a dance floor, a beautiful ceremony space AND fabulous food.
The Restaurant and The Piazza are the perfect encompassing of elegance and relaxation with a breathtaking view of the vineyard and beyond. The raw timber doors and beautiful handcrafted tables add to a warm and inviting atmosphere. The floor to ceiling windows look out over Montalto’s iconic view of the vines, estate gardens, sculptures – right out to Western Port Bay on the horizon. This is the perfect place for a modern Mornington Peninsula wedding in Red Hill.
The sculptures are also incredible! There are 30 permanent sculptures throughout the grounds of Montalto and they are amazing to look at. You’ll be in awe as you venture around the grounds for photos and discover the sculptures around the wetlands and the vines.
The outdoor ceremony area looks over the vineyard and the stunning view! Your ceremony photos will be awe inspiring, especially if you time your ceremony for the few hours before sunset. You’ll have access to the grounds including the sculpture trail, wetlands, olive grove and vineyards for your photos. There’s certainly no shortage of beautiful spots around Montalto for your wedding photos. You’ll love the versatility and balance between nature, gorgeous sculptures, vines and the beautiful architecture of Montalto. You’ll also be able to easily pop out for some sunset photos from your reception (which I highly recommend doing) to get some dreamy golden hour shots.
If you’re a foodie and/or a wine connoisseur, then great food and wine is a MUST at your Mornington Peninsula wedding. You’ve come to the right place!
Montalto is renowned on the Mornington Peninsula and beyond for its multiple award winning food and incredible wine. Your menu will be carefully curated using seasonal, estate grown produce along with locally sourced ingredients. The produce gardens are something else that is special about Montalto, with a big focus on sustainability and seasonal produce. Also, the food is DIVINE! But don’t just take my word for it, check out what The Age Good Food Guide 2023 had to say…
‘A joyous wonderland of art, wine and home-grown food.
Montalto is a festive sculpture-filled estate where friends wander the vines, glass in hand, children roll on the grass and families gather at picnic tables in the kitchen gardens.
The rustic, relaxed restaurant offers respite from the hubbub (although you can keep an eye on it all through wall-sized windows). A Montalto gin and tonic or one of the estate wines sets the tone for the shared set menu, which zips ingredients with zero food miles straight onto your plate.
Fresh root vegetables make perfect dippers for sunflower seed cream. Fried white anchovies are beautifully offset with parsley sauce. Beetroots hum with woodsmoke, while mascarpone tortellini is underscored by creamy leek soubise and the crunch of local hazelnuts. Charred chicken fillet on an oozy farro porridge meanwhile, is soulful and elegant.
Finish with one of the recommended dessert wines – and exhale.’ – The Age Good Food Guide 2023.
Montalto is a Halliday Red Five Star winery and has 3 wine labels that are drawn from 5 different vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula. The wine will excite any wine lover at your wedding!! I love this quote from wine maker Simon Black at Montalto that describes the fabulous wine they have on offer.
‘To use an analogy, the Single Vineyard wines are like the principal soloists in an orchestra; each is unique in their offering. Years of innovative trial work in the winery has given us the knowledge required to capture the hallmark qualities and personality from these sites.
The Montalto wines are more like the orchestra, where all the musicians come together to create a multilayered symphony. These wines are crafted from our best parcels of fruit from our vineyards across the Peninsula.
The Pennon Hill wines are all about drinkability. They showcase all the qualities that the Mornington Peninsula is best known for – perfume, purity, varietal expression and brightness.’- Simon Black, winemaker at Montalto.
