Mornington Peninsula Wine Experiences
The Mornington Peninsula is home to a plethora of boutique vineyards where you may find yourself chatting to the wine maker amongst a beautiful unspoiled county side. Home to over 60 cellar doors and more than 170 vineyards, the Mornington Peninsula is a unique maritime region providing quality cool climate wines specialising in Pinot and Chardonnay varieties.
Most cellar doors are concentrated in the hinterland area around Red Hill, Merricks, Main Ridge, Balnarring, Moorooduc and Shoreham, approximately a 30 minute drive from Peppers Moonah Links Resort, making touring and tasting simple.
In addition to gourmet wine the Mornington Peninsula offers exceptional local produce with many of the cellar doors offering restaurants, cafes, light lunches and cheese platters showcasing local produce. Accompanying mouth-watering food and exquisite wine as you dine amongst the vines are stunning views of sweeping bays, ocean or hinterland.
As an alternative to dining out you will find local produce available direct from farm gates and roadside stalls as you explore the region. Fertile soils ensure top quality berries, apples and vegetables while the region also produces specialty cheeses, lavender, olives and other delights. Along the coast you can also slip into a local fish and chippery for a parcel of their finest to enjoy in your selected picnic spot.
