OCEAN EIGHT

This attention to detail is reflected in their wines with their philosophy of producing wines of high quality. Visiting and tasting in the ‘barrel room’ is a unique experience to be enjoyed.

PORT PHILLIP ESTATE

port-phillip-estateFrom humble beginnings with the cellar door located in their wine making shed, Port Phillip Estate now occupies the ‘grandest’ winery building on the Peninsula. With the building housing their cellar door/bistro, restaurant, accommodation as well as their wine making facilities this is a seriously impressive wine making operation.

MOOROODUC ESTATE

BALNARRING VINEYARD

A working vineyard where your wine tasting will take place in their barrel room. You will usually find that the person hosting at cellar door is one of the wine making staff whom will give you insight into their wine making objectives. Feel free to roam through the winery but beware of the ‘Ginger Ninja.’

DROMANA ESTATE

Located at the beautiful historic Tuerong homestead surrounded by established gardens is Dromana Estate winery. A wonderful setting to sit back and enjoy the extensive range of wines on tasting. There is something to suit everyone’s palate.

PARINGA ESTATE

PIER 10

What began as a family’s holiday retreat, was planted out to vines in the 1990’s and is now the home of Pier 10 winery and restaurant. Let cellar door manager “cheeky” Craig pour you some bubbles or another tipple of your choice from their selection of wines on tasting that can be enjoyed from the deck looking out across the vineyard.

TUCK’S RIDGE

A wonderful place to relax and spend a sunny afternoon with a glass of their wine, looking out across the picturesque vine covered hillside.
