Indulge on the Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is one of Melbourne’s favourite holiday destinations and is just an hour’s drive from the city. Take one of our exquisite Mornington Peninsula tours and explore the galleries and cafes in charming seaside villages, indulge in the richness of local gourmet produce or escape to the hinterland for world-class wine at boutique wineries.
Victoria’s Coastal Wine Region
If you are a fan of a cold-climate pinot or an elegant sparkling white, a visit to one or more of the Mornington Peninsula’s vineyards not be missed. As is commonplace in this part of Victoria, the climate and topography of the peninsula combine to provide great wine-growing territory and the kinds of vintages which connoisseurs will love.
Explore the various wineries on the peninsula, sample their wares, and learn about the subtle nuances of different grape varieties. Centred around the Red Hill region, the Peninsula’s wineries are producing some fantastic drops each year, and many of the vineyards have incredible settings. Port Phillip Estate and Pt Leo Estate feature dramatic and inspiring designs with views down to the sea, in contrast to the quaint and rustic Polperro or Foxy’s Hangout wineries – all featuring magnificent wines to drink and places to visit on Mornington Peninsula.
