Paringa Estate Winery & Restaurant

Wine Food Farm Gate Paringa Estate winery was established by owner/winemaker Lindsay McCall in 1985. Located in the heart of Victoria's beautiful Mornington Peninsula wine region, the home property has 10 acres (4.2 ha.) of vines planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Gris. The current winery was built in 1998, and houses a chefs hatted restaurant on the upper level.

In 2016 Paringa Estate managed 55 acres (22 ha.) of vineyard and in an average season the winery processes around 200 tonnes of fruit or 15,000 cases. Paringa Estate is one of the most awarded wineries in Australia, particularly for Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Paringa Estate Restaurant currently holds a chefs hat in the Age Good Food Guide. Chef Julian Hills offers an exciting and imaginative menu of colourfully presented food which, with acclaimed wines, provides a memorable dining experience. Enjoy lunch in a casual, open and elevated setting which provides expansive vineyard and valley views, whilst for evening dining the rich timber ceiling & wood fire creates a mood of warmth and intimacy overlooking the winery.

With more than 50 cellar door wineries and some of Australia’s top wines right here on the Mornington Peninsula, there is bound to be something that suits your palette.

In one of the world’s most respected wine magazines, Andrew Jefford also said: “I wrote that it was almost like the Chambolle-Musigny vintage for Mornington. A wonderful amount of grace and impressive force. Super-attractive wines.” It all began in the 1970s with a handful of visionary winemakers, and by the 1990s the Mornington Peninsula was recognised as one of the most exciting new regions in the world for extraordinary Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Now, an even more intimate understanding of the Mornington Peninsula’s hills and valleys, micro-climates and their unique ‘terroir’ is leading to a greater sense of place and individuality in these wines. Outstanding Pinot Grigio/Gris, Shiraz and other varietals have also claimed their place. So come and talk to our Mornington Peninsula winemakers and explore Red Hill, Main Ridge, Merricks, Balnarring, Moorooduc and Dromana. More than 50 cellar doors, ranging from the rustic to grand landmarks, are operated by 200 vineyards, and many are open seven days a week. There’s a fabulous range of food too, from casual shared platters through to fine dining restaurants.
