The Mornington Peninsula is suited to wine growing for its natural topography and mild climate. Its vines thrive in sheltered undulating valleys surrounded by water on three sides.
The Mornington Peninsula's wineries are relatively small, but the region’s many different sites, soils and climates produce an exotic array of wines - predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Wine production on the Mornington Peninsula started in the late nineteenth century. In 1886 Dromana wine won an honourable mention in the Intercontinental Exhibition in London. But, like so many other Victorian wine regions, by the 1920s many of the region's vineyards were abandoned or uprooted. In 1972 some aspiring vignerons recognised the potential of the peninsula for producing high quality, cool climate varieties.
