Cool-climate maritime charm
The Mornington Peninsula landscape with its gently undulating hills, rolling green pastures and tranquil vineyards is as stunning as the range of wines produced by its wineries. Wine production in this region dates to 1886, when a wine from won an honourable mention in the Intercontinental Exhibition in London. The modern revival of the region began in earnest in 1972 when a small group of aspiring vignerons recognised the dormant potential of the Mornington Peninsula for producing high quality, cool climate varieties.
Since then the region has built a global reputation for producing a range of fine wines, complimenting perfectly its long-standing reputation as a seaside playground thanks to its beaches, calm bays, natural beauty and world-class golf courses. Surrounded by Bass Strait, Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay, the Mornington Peninsula is one of Australia’s true maritime wine regions.
