Sunday Brunch at Montalto
Enjoy Matt Wilkinson's latest brunch creations while looking over Montalto Estate's scenic winery.
If it's brunch with a view you're after, it's time to round up your faves and book in a weekend jaunt down the Mornington Peninsula. On Sunday, April 11, Red Hill's iconic Montalto Estate is kicking off a short but sweet series of Sunday brunches, helmed by chef Matt Wilkinson (founder of Pope Joan).
Against that idyllic backdrop of vine-lined fields and olive groves, he's whipping up a menu of sophisticated brunch plates such as eggs florentine featuring greens from Montalto's own garden, and a dish of blistered heirloom tomatoes and grilled sardines with a caper and raisin dressing. There are buttermilk waffles, too, teamed with rhubarb and burnt butter ice cream.
For $45, you'll get your choice of main course, along with a freshly squeezed orange juice and shared starters — such as Wilkinson's fancy blinis with crème fraiche and bloody shiraz caviar. And, to match, you'll find a new cocktail list with sips ranging from an estate-grown stone fruit bellini to a gin and blackberry bramble spritz. Montalto's full range of estate wines will also be on offer, as well classic boozy brunch accompaniments like the bloody mary.
Brunch sittings are available from 9am each Sunday and bookings are a must, with the series wrapping up on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 9.
