As a Yarra Valley wedding photographer who has been to this lovely venue quite a few times now, apart from the endless wedding photography opportunities that the Zonzo Estate offers, I believe couples will also appreciate the fact that it is also one of the Yarra Valley wedding venues that provide so many options for couples to customise their wedding day. With two uniquely different onsite ceremony locations as well as two reception location, couples are able to customize their wedding day according to their own vision.





Ceremony options at the Zonzo Estate Yarra Valley


The Zonzo Estate offers two ceremony locations for knot tying indoor and outdoor. The outdoor ceremony is held on the lawn which the couple will be benefited with the stunning vineyard as well as the Yarra Valley rolling hill backdrop. The indoor ceremony will be held inside the Cappella Chapel which features a uniquely designed architecture building with large floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the stunning Yarra Valley.


While the outdoor lawn option remains as the most popular ceremony location at the Zonzo Estate the chapel is also a popular choice for couples when it comes to winter weddings as well as backup plan for wet weather.


  • On the lawn: featuring vineyard and rolling hill as backdrop
  • Chapel: award winning architecture design indoor ceremony space


Reception option at the Zonzo Estate Yarra Valley


The Zonzo Estate features two dining rooms for different style and sizes weddings: the main restaurant and the stable.

The Stable on the other side is a smaller venue which is perfect for smaller and more intimate weddings, with roughly 80 seated capacities.


While both venues are uniquely different but both boasting a stunning rustic vibe, it is totally the couple’s choice on which one to choose based on their wedding guest sizes.

Stunning view from the restaurant.Indoor or outdoor table choice.I didn’t eat but tried Zoncero, their original lemoncero base drink. It was lovely sweet fresh drink for warm weather.Just looking at the view with glass of wine, sitting on the glass, feeling so blessed.Big car park.Must book for the table if you plan to eat there.

I recently dined at Zonzo Estate for a casual lunch with a group of friends and it was a lovely experience. The pizza was very appetizing and lived up to its reputation. The flavors were rich, the crust was perfectly crispy and the toppings were fresh and generous.The atmosphere at Zonzo Estate is warm and welcoming, ideal for a relaxed lunch with friends. The staff were friendly and attentive, adding to the enjoyable experience.

A large group of us came to Zonzo Estate Yarra Valley to celebrate a birthday. We had caught a private minibus to the event, and were treated to a delicious set menu lunch. There was a wide spread of food including antipasti, pizza, bread, slow-cooked lamb, potato, chips, salad and more.It was a beautiful day, and we were treated to gorgeous views of the estate with blue skies and sunny weather.Unfortunately, after a few hours, we were effectively asked to leave the premise as they were preparing for wedding guests to arrive. I understand that venues may host several events in one day, however, we were not warned of this prior and some of us felt the staff could have approached this better. Once asked to leave, they also asked us to quickly skull our drinks from the glasses or transfer them into the provided paper cups. It makes me wonder if a fine estate really doesn't have enough wine glasses, or if they were trying to hasten us to leave. Personally, I found it a bit distasteful and not very accommodating.Nevertheless, we enjoyed our time overall at Zonzo, and I would consider utilising this venue for an event of my own. Thank you!

We had a table in the front area of Zonzo's. This area is of poor architecture because there is no sound proofing. Even at our own table we had to yell to hear each other. The area is really noisy.Although the food was tasty, it wasn't value for money. Pizza's are all $30+. The marinara pizza - what a joke! It comes with an anchovy on each slice, no other seafood.We ordered fries. They came to the table. We asked for tomato sauce....that came almost at the end of the fries and at a cost of $3:50 for approximately a tablespoon of sauce. Disgusting!Service was great, although one waitress did not know where to fill the wine classes to.Overall Zonzo did not meet my expectations for quality and cost.

Impressive. Real Italian food and taste, real food flavor is in all the dishes we ordered, the menu is enough and price is good ordered 4 dishes with a 2 starters 1 wine glass and 2 soft drink for 125$. The only thing is the shared setup could be a it noisy but the feeling that your close to other people makes it for me a comfort thing and nice. Forgot to take pics 🙂

Food is very bad. Pizza was lacking topping and most importantly flavour. The lamb and potatoes dish was lacking flavour also. Felt like no seasoning was used at all. Wine was very poor for a so called 'winery'. That quality of wine smears Australia's reputation as a New World wine region and would disgust some of the brightest winemakers in Victoria. Food and wine lovers do yourself a favour and stay away. This winery feels like a tourist trap, profiting off their rigid menus and beautiful sceneries which masks the horrors underneath. The only saving grace was its aperitif, limoncello that tasted slightly more authentic. Please do not be duped by the establishment positioning itself as a winery, it suits more of a wedding venue vibe.

I recently visited Yering Station Winery while on a Hen’s winery tour. The property was beautiful and had a great variety of wines. While we were there, we did a wine tasting session.The staff member (sorry I don’t remember her name) was very knowledgeable on both the wines we were tasting, as well as the history of the winery which was great to listen to and learn about.Overall I enjoyed the whole experience. I would come back here to try the food.

We recently got married at Zonzo Estate and were completely overwhelmed with how incredible our day was. The lead up was so well organised, Emma was fantastic at keeping us up to date on what we needed to be doing and ensuring we were comfortable with everything too. On the day we were so lucky to have Sal running the show. He was absolutely incredible and went above and beyond in absolutely every aspect of the day. From constantly bringing me champagnes when I lost my glass to saving the day and knowing exactly how to button the bustle of my dress when the bridesmaids couldn’t quite work it out!The venue and location was perfect, staff were all fantastic and the food was as always incredible!

We recently got married at Zonzo and cannot emphasise enough how perfect, joyous and magical our day was. In the whole lead up Emma and the team at Zonzo were so helpful, providing a wedding preparation checklist, timely reminders and recommended suppliers. It really made the whole planning process as stress-free as possible. On the day, the atmosphere, food and whole vibe was just incredible. The staff were so attentive (thank you especially to Sal) and our guests could not stop singing their praises. We have received countless comments from guests about how it was the best wedding they have been to!

We had pizza con porcini and pizza alla salciccia and it was delicious.Do be prepared to share a communal table with another group if your group is small, however they allow enough space between the groups and you don't feel like the next group is just next to you.If the weather is good, sit outside and enjoy the beautiful sun and scenery.Bookings are absolutely a must especially on weekends as they are always booked out, and they take a small deposit for bookings.

Huge gorgeous premises with a large army of staff, providing fast service, incredible wine, Limoncello, and pizza that’s like it’s from Italy itself. Zonzo is a MUST visit when you’re in town, just make sure you book, it’s that popular! Don’t worry though, anyone around you will disappear when you’re encapsulated in traditional Italian food, wine and service.Thank you so much for making our 15th anniversary so special.

Nice place, quite busy at lunch make sure to have reservation. Indoor seating is cozy but too noisy, outdoors is much better if weather permits. Order Pizza, slow cooked lamb and buratta (is it very odd that they charge you extra for some bread). Good in general was tasty and good quality yet the slow cooked lamb lack some flavoring or spices. Their wine is just fine, nothing too special.

Great food, great surrounds, great service! Dined here with a group of 10 for lunch. It was a set menu but with enough choices to keep everyone happy. The antipasto plates were excellent - we had a pregnant lady at our table, which the servers noted, so at their own initiative they offered a platter with substitutes for cold meat. The pizzas were excellent - highly recommend the pork and Fennell sausage option!Things we loved:- proactive service- great options for kids, including the pizzas served in colour-in pizza boxes!- wonderful food for each courseThings which could have been better:- fairly loud in the main room, but what made it difficult was we were at a very large circular table. Had to yell to be heard on the other side of the table making conversation on possible with the people right next to you.Overall, great experience but hopefully next time will be at a different kind of table.Food: 5/5Service: 5/5Ambience: 3.5/5 (but probably 5/5 if at the right table)

A beautiful location and easy drive from Melbourne. Was frustrating that any party size. on Saturdays and Sundays must dine under the feed me menu as there were many other pizzas and starters we would have liked to try. The pizzas were crisp and generous toppings, the dough is very nice. However everything else just felt like a wedding reception, lacking flavour and for our antipasti board and gnocchi dish, it felt as though it had been sitting there for an hour or so and they just bring it out as soon as an order comes through. It did not feel freshly made to order.

A lovely place to have lunch. This popular wedding venue is also known for their wine and pizzas. The food was tasty and the service was good.Due to the long table format, diners share tables with others.We were seated inside and close to the kitchen and register. I found it rather dim in terms of the lighting. Those who were seated near the glass windows enjoyed the natural light from the sun like those seated outdoor.I would return even just for the tiramisu which was well made and delicious.Overall we had a positive experience.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Zonzo as a wedding venue or even just a must visit winery in the Yarra Valley!The whole team at Zonzo made our wedding day the most incredible day we could’ve asked for. Everything was on point, from the set up, food, drinks and staff.In the lead up to the wedding, Emma the wedding coordinator was amazing. Emails were answered extremely prompt and she was always willing to assist or advise with anything we requested.On the day, Salvatore was INCREDIBLE; we cannot thank him enough for everything he did to make the day go so smoothly!! From putting in my veil, sewing/pinning my dress after a mishap and making sure everyone was fed, had a drink in hand and having a bloody good time! Sal honestly took our night to the next level; he went above and beyond in every way possible.The food was one of the first selling points for us picking Zonzo as our wedding venue and it was even better on the day. If you’re after great tasting food, with a generous serving (where no one will go home hungry) - this is exactly what you’ll get at Zonzo. Highly recommend!!

Amazing experience at Zonzo Estate!The wine selection is very nice , we tried the red wine, rose and white wine .The view and the restaurant is beautiful.The staff very friendly even if it was very busy .We had the set menu at $70 . I would just say that $65 would justify the food better. The food is pub food , is delicious but not up to high standard . I don’t like lamb but I ate it and it was very nicely cooked and the sauce delightful.Inside the restaurant is quite noisy however the view is stunning and the decoration is adequate with the vineyard style .Thanks very much Zonzo for the Lunch .

What a beautiful place for food and drink, I would recommend the Spanner Crab Ravioli, it was so light yet had beautiful flavours! Zonzo is a wonderful estate, the inside of the restaurant has a very warm vibe and makes you feel at home. The wine is always delicious, and to make matters more exciting they are building another space for wine tastings alone. I will definitely be back

This was our first visit and we were very impressed by the view and atmosphere. We felt covid safe sitting outside overlooking the grapevine and the staff were very attentive and helpful, in particular a special mention to Nicholas who served us and was more than helpful and kind. The 3 course set menu was generous and was kid friendly as well. There was a separate kids menu and an obvious drinks menu that showcased the many Zonzo selections. Plenty of parking, 3 main sitting areas that we noticed (inside, outside and the stable). Super modern and a great place for a special group outing. Would definitely come back again.
