Located just ten minutes south of Mornington, Trofeo Estate is a winery, cellar door and restaurant with a unique story to share. Upon entrance through our picturesque tree-lined driveway, awaits 50 acres of stunning vineyard encompassing our 1930's refurbished passionfruit cannery building. Known as the 'Home of Terracotta Wine,' Trofeo specialises in wines ages exclusively in Terracotta Amphorae - an ancient winemaking method dating back to the very birth of wine.

Our casual indoor and outdoor dining space is an ideal way to taste our range with a wine flight, paired with our spectacular grazing menu curated by Head Chef Martin Brennan. Featuring a platter selection showcasing local and seasonal produce, plus daily specials, this casual menu is social, fun and perfect for sharing between friends and loved ones while you take in the view! We look forward to welcoming you to Trofeo Estate!

The service and staff were lovely however food and wine were below average. We ordered the Butchers Board and every item on the board came out cold (except the meatballs as they were served in a little pot). The duck in the curry was dry. The meatballs were flavourless. The mini burgers were also bland and very cold. It was really disappointing especially for the price. As for the wine, we ordered the wine flight - the white wines were nice however the the reds were unpleasant. There was residue and bits at the bottom of each glass. Overall a disappointing experience which is a shame considering the venue and staff were beautiful!

Vana, thank you for taking the time to provide such honest & thorough feedback. We are very disappointed to hear your experience did not meet our usual high standards. As a 5 star rated Halliday winery, we pride ourselves on producing premium wines. Whether the wine poured on the day was corked, or our unique style didn't suit your individual preferences is unknown, however we would appreciate the opportunity to amend this discrepancy. We will be in touch with details. Kind regards, Management

Excellent wine tasting. Lunch platter was outstanding as was the service. We would definitely recommend to family & friends. Nice outdoor settings but too cold. Good to return on warmer days.

Fabulous experience all round. Trofeo estate was a google find and so our expectations were limited. The beautiful entryway was a wonderful surprise and Trofeo estate continued to deliver. Staff were lovely, food was delicious (more than enough for 2 people) and we left very full, happy and satisfied.
My only criticism was the noise. The dining area is a big open room and with a few large groups it became hard to converse, but otherwise a fabulous experience. We will be back .

Beautiful winery with delicious share platters. We had the vegan 'harvest' platter with the red wine tasting showcasing 4 reds. Lovely to sit outside undercover on the deck and look out over the garden. Thanks Trofeo Estate!

Love this winery such a beautiful setting - a little chilly inside with the door opening and closing all the time but otherwise... perfect. We ordered two large platters for 6 people but I think next time we would order three small platters and have cheese as well - the duck was sensational.

Our first visit. The menu was rather limited in terms of only serving platters, but these were both appetising and filling. Having said that a couple next to us was served a bowl of chips! Choice of wines was more than adequate and our Cabernet Sauvignon was pleasant although it could have been aired longer. It was a cold day and we felt the venue could’ve been warmed more as iris very open (ideal for summer). In summary, we recommend this venue to anyone although we would not recommend taking younger children with you and summer would be best to visit unless they improve the internal temperature. We will return.
