Meet the Chef

Maurizio has experience leading some high-profile restaurants in Australia and welcomes his move to De Bortoli, both sharing the same philosophy about sustainability, fresh local produce and nose-to-tail eating. With Maurizio at the helm and leading a young and enthusiastic team, he intends to strip away the formalities and pretensions of fine dining to reflect a relevant modern eatery. In the coming weeks and months, expect to see a vibrant, rustic menu; a reintroduction of the family’s salami-making celebration in winter; cooking classes throughout the year and regional Italian lunches. Plans are underway to enlarge the kitchen garden and orchard on the farm whilst Maurizio is already visiting local suppliers like Yarra Valley Truffles, Gin Pig, Unearthed Mushrooms and Yarra Valley Custom Meats, so that his menu will reflect the seasons and the place. (Sounds like fine wine really). Maurizio Esposito gained invaluable experience from many inspiring chefs - Stephanie Alexander, Robert Castellani, Alain Ducasse, Karen Martini, among a host of others in Europe and Australia. He is the inaugural winner of The Age Good Food Guide Sustainability Award.

    Haven't been here for some time. Wonderful to see the place thriving. Worth every cent. Excellent staff. Marginally slow food service on the day, but otherwise faultless.

About the restaurant

The winery restaurant 'Locale' reflects the De Bortoli family's Italian heritage in name and nature and offers Italian-inspired dishes that celebrate the abundance of local and seasonal produce available. Take a seat in the sunny dining room overlooking the vines to enjoy the very best the Yarra Valley has to offer, matched with quality estate grown wines. Many of our ingredients are grown on the Yarra Valley Estate and hand-picked by head chef, Ben Levene and his team. The menu reflects the seasons as distinctly as the views of the vineyards from the restaurant windows. Home made pasta and authentically cooked risotto are menu constants while the sauces and ingredients that go with them change depending on the time of year.
