Killara Estate

Owned by Leo and Gina Palazzo, the Sunnyside Vineyard in Seville is the new home of Killara Estate. It features the Racers and Rascals Cafe and cellar door, enjoying sweeping views of the valley and nearby mountain ranges.

With luscious Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris , Nebbiolo, Shiraz, and Sangiovese vines, Killara Estate's elegant wines have great perfume and aromatics that show the traits of the fruit, rather than wine inputs. The family places emphasis on a minimal intervention winemaking process,  with the resulting wines having their own individual personality that reflect the conditions of the vintage.

The Palazzo family takes great pride in their venue, boasting a great reputation for friendly service, immersive tastings, rustic wood fired Italian produce and outstanding wine selection.

The elevated position of the cellar door and café gives interest and detail to the vast panoramic views, with the landscape capturing the differing textures across the region minute by minute.

The combination of an open fire, lounge areas, extensive outdoor decking, manicured lawns and kid friendly playground areas allows for family and friends to enjoy any style of occasion together without interruption from other guests.

About the Winemaker

Rob Dolan

With more than 25 years of making wine for some of Australia’s most iconic wineries, local legend Rob, needs little introduction in winemaking circles.

Rob’s belief in creating wines of real character flows through everything he does.

His wine, therefore, is a reflection of everything he loves about our home in the Yarra Valley – bold, generous and exceedingly likeable—a bit like the man himself!
