Wineries, breweries and other cellar doors
With more than 50 Mornington Peninsula wineries featuring cellar doors, this is one of the hottest spots in Australia to sip a little, learn a lot and discover some gems for your own cellar. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the stellar wines, but superb Shiraz, Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are stealing more of the limelight.
There's also some sibling rivalry in the Mornington Peninsula cellar door scene: think handcrafted beer including seasonal releases, local apples made into whole-juice cider, and artisan distillers creating distinctive gin, vodka and grappa. And before you drive…think about shuttle services between wineries and local transfers.
