Mornington Peninsula - World Class Pinot
Just an hour’s drive south-east from Melbourne CBD, you will be arriving in the Mornington Peninsula: home of world class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Being a cool climate region, the cool wind blows up from the south, east and west making Mornington Peninsula a perfect fit for high quality wines. Red varieties account for approximately 60% and white grapes account for 40% of the region’s production. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the top varieties in the Mornington Peninsula.
