Mornington Peninsula


The land of the Boon Wurrung/Bunurong People, Traditional Owners of the Mornington Peninsula region. 

Tucked in amongst the orchards, olive groves and vineyards, over 50 wineries have opened their doors to offer the region’s famous Pinot Noir, Chardonnays at elegant cellar doors and restaurants serving regional cuisine.

Located on the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay and within an hour’s drive of Melbourne, the peninsula is also famous for its seaside villages, world-class golf courses, spa retreats and local produce, which you can buy at bustling markets, farm gates, or pick-your-own-produce farms.

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.

HISTORY

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.
