Just 60 kilometers from the center of Melbourne, Steels Gate Cellar Door and Restaurant is situated in a magnificent hillside setting at Dixons Creek. It is made up of two individually designed boutique vineyards in the Yarra Valley.

The 230m above sea level Steels Gate Home Block Vineyard was established in the late 1970s on an undulating hillside with friable grey loam soils. Hand-tended, completely unirrigated, and surrounded by a national park The grapes are painstakingly hand-picked at the ideal harvest period after the vines have been meticulously maintained by hand.

Matt and Brad from Steel’s Gate have been in charge of the viticulture on their Home Block vineyard for the past 9 years, specializing in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Blanc de Blanc, Pinot/Chardonnay Sparkling, Pinot Noir Rose, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and Semillon varieties.
