Mount Beauty Local Wineries
There are four wineries in the Mount Beauty area. Three of the wineries operate a cellar door throughout most of the year. Two of these offer excellent cafes where you can combine your tasting with an enjoyable meal, or a platter and the other offers the availability of a platter with your tasting.
Just 2km down Simmonds Creek Road from the centre of Mount Beauty, this winery is a must do visit. Not just for the tasting but for the great location, scenery and atmosphere. Put some time aside during your visit to Mount Beauty to enjoy the views of the West Kiewa Valley while you taste the wines. Better still enjoy your tasting over a meal or a platter and finish off with a coffee.
A must visit winery and a must visit cafe. You could stop off at this winery on the way to or from Mount Beauty. However located only 20km along the Kiewa Valley Highway and then 2.5km along Bay Creek Lane. This winery with excellent food deserves its own visit from Mount Beauty. Avail yourself of the opportunity for a chat with the winemaker who usually does the tastings. The set-up is not as spectacular as Annapurna, but the food makes up for the more basic layout. Although it is only a 15-20min drive from Mount Beauty, we suggest that you make a reservation if you plan to eat at the cafe. The small cafe can book out on popular days.
Cellar door: Bay Creek Lane, Mongans Bridge. It is 20km along the Kiewa Valley Hwy from Mount Beauty. The turnoff is on the right at the bottom of the hill just after the Christian Centre.
A small winery growing only pinot noir. Again very close to your accommodation at Kiewa View. Just 2km via the back way along Damms Road, off Valley Ave opposite McKay St. You can cycle the round trip by taking the bike path to Tawonga, and then down Mountain Creek Road to Damms Road, and return along Damms Road. If you want it nice and flat both ways, take the Damms Road short route both ways. This winery has a basic but cosy tasting area. We recommend that you include this on your schedule and allow time for an intimate chat with the wine maker over one of their excellent platters.
Cellar door: Corner of Damms Rd & Mountain Creek Rd Mount Beauty
A small working winery. No cellar door hours, but wine lovers are encouraged to arrange tasting by appointment.
