Winery
The Yarra Valley truly starts at Rob Dolan Wines. Only 30 minutes from Melbourne, our dog-friendly winery is the perfect place to enjoy cheese and wine, and learn about the Yarra Valley from our Wine Specialists in the Cellar Door.

Rob's philosophy is all about making wine with character; wine with depth which reflects our unique terroir. You'll taste from vineyard sites across the Valley, and learn how location impacts the perfect drop.

Visit us for a wine tasting, or order some cheese and wine from the Cellar Door which you are welcome to enjoy while overlooking the vineyard. If you're lucky, you might meet @merlot_thewinedog - our Chief Cuddle Officer - he loves making friends with our visitors!

    Great wine selection. Outstanding venue, customer service, atmosphere and view. It's very dog friendly and our puppy was able to roam off lead. The cheese platter was absolutely delicious. Definitely one of my favourite spots.

    Just a joy to be sitting on the verandah of a beautiful property, gazing out onto the lawns and vines. Bliss. Add to that being looked after by all the staff as if you were a VIP guest - it’s simply superb and outstanding customer service! And then of course the outstanding wines. We love every single time we’re there enjoying a few lazy hours on a weekend afternoon. When you think it can’t get better, Rob Dolan is dog friendly too!

    We booked on the recommendation of a friend for a final lunch in Melbourne before our return to the UK. The staff (and dogs Ollie and Merlot!) were very friendly and helpful and took us through the tasting flight. The cheeseboard was huge and tremendous value. Lovely views of the valley and some of the vines. Will come back on our return to Australia.

    Rob Dolan went out of their way to ensure my mum felt very special on her 60years of work retirement lunch. We spent the whole afternoon there and didn’t want to leave. What a gorgeous family friendly not touristy winery you are running. We did the flight and bite option which was amazing! The food was 10/10!! Everything was wonderful Thankyou again

    Rob Dolan winery is very scenic and beautiful. I think we came on the wrong day as a wedding was being set up / guests arriving during our booking. We are sure it is a beautiful and fun winery on the weekend. Only complaint is the presentation of the cheese board. Cheese came in plastic wrappers and loaf of bread came not cut up and very hard. When everything was unwrapped we had to scatter the plastic wrappers on the table. Was awkward.
