Max's at Red Hill Estate enjoys iconic status as the first winery restaurant on the Peninsula. When the restaurant was established, there were no freeways to the area and it was a long two hour drive from Melbourne.
"People thought I was crazy and that it would never work", says Max. Almost two decades on and surrounded by numerous other winery restaurants, Max is seen as a pioneer of the dining scene on the Peninsula.
Max's offers a seasonally changing menu with a focus on local sustainable produce. Our menu may feature mussels from Flinders, cheese from Red Hill, berries from Main Ridge, organic vegetables from Baxter, honey from Moorooduc and more.
Supporting our local producers makes sense. We are not only benefiting the local community economy and reducing food miles, we are ensuring we provide the best quality, freshest produce to you, our customer.
Groups & Corporate
Max's welcomes groups, large and small. Whether a family gathering, social group or corporate event, we have packages tailored to your needs.
A lunch or dinner at Max's can be preceded by wine tasting in the cellar door, with canapés and drinks on the terrace following as you soak up the stunning view. Enjoy a three course meal in the restaurant, matched to estate wines as you are attended by our friendly and experienced staff.
Our annual Burning of the Canes evening celebrates the change of season on the vineyard with a bonfire of vine prunings.
Max's Melbourne Cup Day Extravaganza is a family fun day raising funds for local charity, Riding for the Disabled.
