Mornington Peninsula wine region

Pristine beaches and gloriously green hinterland – this much-loved holiday favourite is just an hour's drive from Melbourne, and home to more than 50 boutique cellar doors and the region's renowned pinot noir.

Passion for pinot
Hear the stories of passionate peninsula vintners, who grow their own fruit and produce their own wines. They'll tell you all about the famed regional pinot noir and the cool-climate chardonnay, and let you in on the secrets of the newer regional varietals, including pinot grigio, pinot gris and shiraz.

Regions within a region
Taste different styles on a cruise around this compact and diverse region. Climate, topography, land and soil structure create distinct micro-climates around the hinterland villages of Red Hill, Main Ridge and Moorooduc, and Merricks, Balnarring and Dromana on the coast.

Chat with other wine buffs on your tasting journey, or relax and take advantage of award-winning winery restaurants, casual eateries, accommodation and broad sundecks.
