The Mornington Peninsula is a short 60-minute drive from Melbourne CBD. Located south-east of the state and along the coast, it allows for a spectacular day with ocean and vineyard views. Due to its maritime climate, the Peninsula is predominantly known for its elegant chardonnay and pinot noir and covers several suburbs starting from Mornington and beyond.
Some of the wineries we visit in the Mornington Peninsula include:
Yabby Lake, renowned for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, they offer a huge range of wines for all tastes and budgets.
Trofeo Estate is one of the newer wineries on the Peninsula and is rapidly gaining a great reputation for their Amphora wines and food.
Quealy Wines has a rustic cellar door and the people will make you feel at home. Quealy was started by the queen of grigio and has an array of interesting wines. If you are lucky enough you may get to say hello to the resident Koala.
Port Phillip Estate is a previous winner of James Halliday’s Winery of the year with spectacular views, wine and food, you will not be disappointed.
Some other wineries we may visit include Montalto, Ten Minutes by Tractor, Crittenden Estate, Main Ridge Estate and Tucks Ridge.
Prefer something a little different? For private tour groups, we can also accommodate a visit to St Andrews Beach Brewery, Red Hill Brewery, Bass Distillery and Main Ridge Dairy to name a few or feast your way into a Southern American BBQ experience at Red Gum BBQ for lunch.
