Located just an hour’s drive south of Melbourne, Victoria, Red Hill is the ultimate epicurean destination. With a population of 731 residents, the small Mornington Peninsula rural town is renowned for its local artisan producers, wineries and restaurants.

Red Hill derives its name from the rich, red clay that has made the area predominantly agricultural from its first European settlement in the mid-nineteenth century.

The rolling hillsides are dotted with vines and olive groves to provide the ultimate farm to table dining experience for locals and tourists alike. From the Red Hill Cheeses to the Red Hill Bakery, visitors can sample local delights made on site.

Travel from one cellar to another with renowned vineyards opening their doors to the public for a true culinary experience. Red Hill Estate is one of Australia’s boutique wine producers and is acclaimed for its cellar door and vineyards. Guests can visit the award-winning producer and enjoy tastings, fine dining and panoramic views of Western Port Bay and beyond.

One of the most renowned wineries and olive groves in the region is Montalto, a family owned and run estate that resides on over 30 acres of striking countryside. The estate is known for its Australian architecture, relaxed ambience, intimate cellar door, restaurant and café, sculpture walk and wetlands. 

Ten Minutes by Tractor has 34 hectares of vineyards that produce Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvingnon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Tempranillo. On site, the restaurant is run by chef Stuart Bell and produces outstanding dishes using high quality local produce and herbs and vegetables from their own kitchen garden.

Red Hill is the perfect destination for those seeking a more relaxed and refined lifestyle. Whether it is a weekend away or a lifestyle change, Red Hill is the perfect country escape in a serene setting.
