Modern Australian
Nestled at the foothills of Red Hill, Trofeo Estate is a family-owned vineyard and winery with a unique story to share. A trip to Trofeo will take you back in time, where the most ancient method dating back more than 3,000 years meets modern innovation in winemaking. Trofeo age and ferment their wine exclusively in Terracotta Amphora vessels imported from Italy. Elegant and fruit-driven wines are grown and crafted onsite, representing the purest form of each cool climate variety and the regions unique terroir.

Originally housing a passionfruit cannery circa 1930, the venue is now home to the cellar door and restaurant, stretching out onto a stunning deck and wine garden that overlooks 50 acres of rural vineyard. Headed by Executive Chef Steve Davidson, the restaurant delivers a relaxed shared menu showcasing the best of the region, designed to be enjoyed with our wines. Guests can also visit the cellar door to sample award-winning wines and experience the terracotta difference.

    We have been going to Trofeo on and off for many, many years. It is in a beautiful location and the cellar door and restaurant are in a lovely old cannery building. The restaurant food has always been impressive, but perhaps is a little noisy when full of patrons.

    Wow, we thought that we were going to eat from a cheese board, but what a great surprise when we were presented with the $79 menu. All of the food was of exceptional quality, and so delicious. Our friends from Melbourne were equally impressed. Our waiters were all friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this little gem.

    Great presentation chef and excellent wait staff. Lovely place for lunch and wine tasting. 3 things I think could be improved, 1. don't complicate the food to much for the sake of presentation, 2. Improve your toilets, what would your mum like? 3. Heaters are needed to warm such a vast room in winter.

    Wasn't sure what to expect as I haven't eaten at this winery before but had tasted their lovely wines. We started by having a wine tasting, which was skillfully run and not only was the wine delicious but the whole experience was enjoyable We then moved go the dining room. What a lovely room. We felt at home immediately. The lunch was a set menu, with every course being Delicious and interesting. On a cold day it was satisfying to finish with a sticky date pudding. Food excellent, staff excellent , surroundings excellent, wine excellent. Could not have asked for a better lunch experience. Thank you to all

    We have had tasting menu today. Great food and drinks. Each course was delicious and well match with the sauce. Juicy and tender of chicken breast (probably it was sous vide cooking), swordfish was cooked to perfection. Compliment to chefs and waitering staff.

    Trofeo wine is reliably good however the food lacked seasoning - basic things like salt, pepper and olive oil were absent entirely. The overall experience felt rushed, and while it is perfectly acceptable to be made aware of table time limits, when you are an hour away from the next table, and you have only been sitting for 45 minutes and reminded that you will need to leave in an hour - sends a poor message. Overall Trofeo is a great location but I have found it hit or miss at times.

    Nice afternoon at Trofeo Estate with lovely food and wine only to be spoilt by the bill thrown on the table after our meal. No opportunity for coffee or dessert, nor were we asked. Very strange given we had spent $250 for lunch! Sadly, we will not be back. Overhead the table next to us wanted to order more food and they were told the kitchen was closed even though they were still finishing their bottle of wine from lunch… they too were NOT HAPPY! Very bad communication with diners.

    lovely birthday meal with friends. The set menu was great, spent 3 hrs there, having a glass of wine we all had different types and all agreed the wine was excellent. The food was brought out at just the right time. Our taste buds experienced lots of lovely different favours. Highly recommend people to visit this restaurant

    Food wasn't great. $600 for 4 people with drinks was steep. Service was poor, no1 seemed to care except one waitress with glasses who was good. Others dropped food on table and walked away, for $75/head for food you expect better. Won't be coming back or recommending to friends. Waste of money

    The venue and the service was so great. The staff were super lovely and it's such a beautiful building and outside area! My friend and I had to move to the backyard as it was super loud inside and we were lucky it was a beautiful sunny day despite the cold weather, so it was nice and quiet outside. Plus, we had the speaker above us where the music was playing quietly and we enjoyed the old school hits being played! While the staff were wonderful, unfortunately the food were a massive let down :( We chose the set menus which were 75 bucks each and unfortunately the only dish we enjoyed was the focaccia served at the beginning. I hate to leave negative reviews, but thought it would be helpful to get the feedback. We just found all the dishes to be quite bland and were incredibly disappointed, although they were presented really well. We had read all great reviews so we were excited to visit, but unfortunately regretted our decision. I'd like to still thank the staff for the friendly service! I truly hope the menu improves though!

    I've been to Trofeo a couple of times and loved their sharing platters, wine, service and of course the venue. I decided to book for my first mothers day a couple of months back, before they changed the mothers day menu to a set menu. I was happy to proceed with the booking as someone called me in advance to check any dietary requirements as two of us are vegan. I didn't think it would be an issue because their "from the earth" platters are amazing. Unfortunately, todays menu was disappointing. There were three courses each featuring three different tasting dishes to share. However, as we are vegan, we just recieved 1 dish per course and it was basically three courses of veggies cooked different ways. We asked staff about this but they couldn't really answer why we were only receiving 1 dish per course. Our other guests (there were 4 of us dining) had three amazing dishes per course, from king prawns, pork belly, lamb, calamari etc. It was really disappointing and has put me off visiting again in the future. Why call us to confirm dietary requirements if you're not going to actually cater for us?

    I made this booking 3 months ago for my daughters hens party- dissapointed that cellar door closed due to staffing issues and we were told to wait 20 minutes after our booking time to clear last dineres....then we were rushed to finish before closing time at 5...overall this gave us 1 hour turnaround.??? staff was great...however...we made to feel like our booking was too much.

    Beautiful surroundings and really lovely place to sit and eat. Service from Finn and Sam was great, super friendly and helpful however the only time available to book in for lunch was for a 3pm time slot and by 3:15 we were told the kitchen needed our order quickly. Our other guests arrived at 3:20 and were not shown to our table and told on entry that they could not eat anything as the kitchen was closed! This definitely spoilt the entire experience.
