Corte (Spanish for courthouse) is named in recognition of the historic courthouse in which it is located. Built in 1860 the courthouse and adjoining lock-up and former police station served as the justice precinct for the Port Melbourne borough for over 120 years. The first seven councillors for the borough met in the courthouse in 1860 to write the laws and begin governing the borough following its separation from Melbourne.

Renowned Public Works Department architect, JJ Clark, designed the courthouse with its signature style of elaborate ornamentation reflecting its Classical Renaissance architecture. Today, the courthouse is heritage listed and is maintained largely in its original form with the integrity of the distressed stone walls, high ceilings, original oak beams and working judge’s log fire creating the perfect rustic atmosphere in which to enjoy Corte’s cuisine and wine.
