The Crittenden Wine Centre introduces a different way of experiencing wine on the Mornington Peninsula. A range of alternative and traditional wines can be sampled in a format that is unique, innovative and makes tasting wine an experience in itself. Knowledgeable staff greet patrons and guide them through carefully designed wine flights to allow them to gain a full understanding of the wines. Comfortable seating ensures that guests are able to concentrate on the experience yet relax in ambient surroundings with views over the lawn, lake and some of the Peninsula's oldest vines. It is a genuine family operation, with father and founder Garry Crittenden now overseeing the vineyard, son Rollo the winemaking and daughter Zoe the marketing. The wine tasting experience occurs in the large home where the Crittenden family once lived; recently renovated and converted to the stylish, purpose built wine centre.The large range of wines reflect Rollo's passion for traditional varietals as well as his inability to resist the temptation to experiment in the winery. This means that the wine tasting experience is informative and educational. Imperatively though, it is fun and like anything to do with wine, best enjoyed with friends and family.
