Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Though the Dominique Portet winery was only founded in 2000, the eponymous winemaker behind it is a ninth-generation winemaker from Bordeaux, so he's no newbie to the winemaking profession. Currently Ben Portet, Dominique's son, heads up the winemaking team. 

The Dominique Portet winery in the rolling hills of Yarra Valley offers a scenic setting for the vineyards. The cellar door is open daily and the restaurant serves country-style lunches (think snack platters, cheese and charcuterie) ideal for a post wine tasting meal. 

Critics and connoisseurs alike rave consistently about Dominique Portet’s Fontaine Rosé, one that’s an exceptional berry-driven summery blend of merlot, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon; and a steal at $22 a bottle.
