“Any wine lover's consideration of a top 10 Australian chardonnay or pinot noir must include
one or more Mornington Peninsula wines. Not bad for a region that essentially was born in the
Like a fine Pinot Noir, the Mornington Peninsula's food and wine experience has developed
magnificently over the past few years. New wineries have opened, new grape varieties have been
planted. Top city chefs have made a sea change to the Peninsula, while regional produce has
flourished. It's all a delicious discovery.
And, like an elegant Chardonnay, the Mornington Peninsula has acquired a definitive style. You'll
discover it in our distinctive cool maritime climate wines, produced by 170 wineries and showcased
at 50 cellar doors. Try our celebrated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, then linger over fine wines
such as Pinot Gris, Viognier, Shiraz, Riesling and classic sparkling.
Many talented chefs have also made their home here, revelling in the Peninsula's rich harvests
from orchards, farms, oceans, local artisans and kitchen gardens. Their menus simply breathe
Mornington Peninsula freshness; Flinders mussels, Western Port Bay fish, just-picked organic
fruit and vegetables, aged local meats, hand-made cheeses, oils crafted from our olive groves,
hand-made chocolates using Belgian couverture, coffee roasted to order.
And while the green hills of our hinterland are home to many of these passionate producers
(just look for the farm gate signs), they've also blessed us with spectacular locations for
hilltop restaurants overlooking vineyards, ocean and countryside.
You'll find some of our finest country restaurants with views over Port Phillip Bay, Western Port Bay, or overlooking peaceful vine-clad hills, and a even willow-fringed
private lake. And don't forget the classy village cafes, seaside bistros, winery brasseries and
local brewers who complete our epicurean experience. Delicious,
distinctive and very Mornington Peninsula.
