An hour's drive south-east of Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula’s first plantings were in 1886. Today the region hosts 200 small-scale vineyards and more than 50 cellar doors. Vines thrive in sheltered undulating valleys nurtured by a maritime cool climate creating elegant, world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and, to a lesser extent, Pinot Gris/Grigio, Shiraz, Tempranillo, and Gamay. The acclaimed Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir has a refreshing acidity and purity. These wines are incredible examples of varietal expression while being lighter, delicate, and incredibly intense.
