Moreover, this Sunday 26 February, Montalto hosts their traditional Sculpture Prize Exhibition for 2017. All throughout 2016 artists working in any medium were presenting their works, were being judged and assessed. Finalists were invited to install their works on the property in Montalto and the winner will be announced on the day.
All the finalists' works will remain on the property until April. And only the winner will receive a prize of $30,000 and their work will be acquired by the vineyard.

Sculpture Prize is a tradition for Montalto: 'The Mitchells share a passion for wine, food, nature and the arts. Montalto was born out of a desire to share this with others. The Montalto Sculpture Prize is an essential expression of this spirit, designed to encourage artistic pursuit, and to allow guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the property in association with the wonderful creativity of the sculptures'.
