THE JOURNEY ...
Visit 5 cellar doors and enjoy a 2 course lunch with a glass of wine, sitting on the terrace in warmer months



Departing from Melbourne we visit the beautiful Mornington Peninsula
Wine Region. Mornington Peninsula is unique as one of Australia’s only
true maritime wine regions. Surrounded by Bass Strait, Western Port and
Port Phillip Bays it presents an exciting wine region for winemakers to
present wines to match the beauty and diversity of the landscape. The
wineries we choose to visit on your Mornington Peninsula wine tour
embody the great tastes and character of this beautiful location.


“AS SEEN IN BEST OF THE MORNINGTON PENINSULA”

Mornington Peninsula Wineries
Yabby Lake

Yabby Lake Vineyard is
the perfect first stop on your food and wine journey. Here you will
taste wines that capture the spirit of the region, young and fresh and
with great attention to detail in their very small production. The Red
Claw label is crafted from fruit on the estate and is available for
tasting at their cellar door.


Quealy Wines

Quealy Wines
offers the widest range of wines on the Peninsula. Quealy are
experienced, educated, curious and some would think outrageous
winemakers. They defy the status quo but are steeped in tradition. You
will be greeted by friendly and knowledgeable hosts with most tastings
held in the very heart of the winery, the barrel room, where you will
meet the winery cat. You will taste several of the vineyard expressions
of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir sourced from some of the oldest and finest
sites on the Peninsula.


Stonier Wines

Stonier Wines
was established in 1978 by Brian Stonier starting with planting a
chardonnay vineyard in Merricks on the south side of the Mornington
Peninsula. Stonier’s can now source grapes from several sites on the
Mornington Peninsula and accessing some of the oldest vines in the
region. The cellar door opened in 1991 presents striking architecture
designed by well know architect Daryl Jackson whose work includes the
iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.


Lunch

Lunch options include the Merricks General Store or  RareHare at Jackalope Hotel  or Merricks Creek (depending on the day of tour and availability).


We select the best lunch dining experiences on the Mornington
Peninsula. All options  offer high quality, local produce for a
delicious dining experience, paired with a glass of wine.


Built in 1924, Merricks General Store has transformed from a
traditional general store to an epicurean delight offering delicious
seasonal food for a 2 course lunch and a glass of wine selected at the
in house cellar door. With views overlooking Westenport Bay, the dining
area presents with a welcoming deck and a vine covered deck in the
garden at the back of the restaurant.


Pt Leo Estate

Pt Leo Estate
is a new and exciting addition to the changing scene on the Mornington
Peninsula. Opening late in 2017 this estate has quickly become a popular
destination offering a great cellar door experience to match the
amazing views of world class sculptures against a Westernport Bay back
drop
