The Mornington Peninsula
and Yarra Valley

The Mornington Peninsula which is a special place where vines thrive in sheltered valleys. Cool climate wines are abundant and it is here you will find fabulous award-winning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as Pinot Grigio and Shiraz. 

There are 200 small-scale vineyards and more than 50 cellar doors in the Mornington Peninsula region - enough to keep us busy for a while!

The Yarra Valley is the region where Victoria’s wine industry began back in the 1830s.
