The Peninsula celibrates Pinot Noir during this weekend with many new wines released especially for the occasion. A great opportunity to taste, compare and purchase wines from this grape so suited to the area.
Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia
The Mornington Peninsula region is one of the most breathtaking in Australia. Against a backdrop of spectacular scenery, vineyards slope gently down to secluded valleys, or sit atop hills with beautiful views to the two bays that stretch down each side of the peninsula.
The region is a favourite weekend escape for Melburnians, and a popular holiday destination within Australia. The Mornington Peninsula is home to a wide range of activities and a key location for those interested in fine food and wine.
The past twenty-five years has seen the emergence of the region as a producer of cool climate wines, predominantly Pinot Noir. Within the region there is a wide range of soil types and aspects that change from gently undulating countryside in the north, through to rich fertile wooded uplands tumbling down to the southern plains. The happy coincidence of late ripening and a prolonged, gentle autumn, results in fully ripe grapes with intense flavours and fine tannins.
The Mornington Peninsula Vignerons Association invites you to explore with us how our Pinot Noir fits in with fine Pinot Noir from around the world.
