Mornington Peninsula

Less than an hour drive from Melbourne, the Morning Peninsula offer some of the most beautiful wineries, restaurants, and accommodation in the country. The traditional Aussie warmth mixes with European charm, all wrapped in a coastal living environment where the food and wine meet the sea to offer one of the great regional wine escapes. 

The first winery appeared in 1972 with the planting the Elgee Park vineyard, while the first commercial winery appeared in 1975 called Main Ridge Estate and they are a jewel in this regions crown still today.  There are now over 50 cellar doors, 100 wineries and 200 vineyards in the region, producing some of the countries most exciting cool climate wines.

The top dog in the Peninsula is the pinot noir. They tend to be very bright and elegant with perfumed red fruits, florals, dried herbs, and spice. But don't overlook the chardonnay as they tend to be just as stylish and sophisticated as the pinots. Pinot gris/grigio was brought in and mastered by Kathleen Quealy and Kevin McCarthy, and since the varietal has never looked back becoming a firm favourite with the public. Finally, cool climate shiraz/syrah has successfully made this region its home offering a real alternative to those who prefer brighter and lighter styles. 

Private Full Day Wine Tour
$198
The Mornington Peninsula is an exciting region for winemakers to express the terroir of their diverse sites. This allows the various characters of wine to almost match the landscape. Pinot Noir is perhaps the best grape to express this and the region is very fortunate to have all the qualities to make a truly great selection of interesting and expressive wines. The principle varieties and most successful styles are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which flourish in the Peninsula's conditions. Though introduced to the region more recently, pinot gris has built a strong reputation for quality and regional distinction. Almost 50% of plantings are Pinot Noir, around 25% Chardonnay, 11% Pinot Gris/Grigio and a diverse range of other varieties suited to specific sites, including Shiraz, as you will see as you tour our region.
