At an altitude of anywhere between 40 and 300m, and with soils that range from volcanic to sedimentary, the Mornington Peninsula is blessed with a cool maritime climate that creates one of the most unique combinations of any wine producing region in the world.

The region splits into more than 50% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Gris with the remaining 10-15% being made up of a number of varietals; the most significant being Shiraz.

Along with 1,000 hectares planted, 200 vineyards and more than 60 Cellar Doors, it’s closest and most comparable regions (globally) are the Rheingau, Napa and Burgundy.

The region is widely renowned as Australia’s best for Pinot Noir; the most neurotic of grape varieties
