Surrounded by Port Phillip, Western Port and Bass Strait, Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, or simply ‘the Peninsula’ to the locals is one of Australia’s best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir producing regions. Wine production dates back to at least 1886 when a local wine was lauded with an honourable mention at the Intercontinental Exhibition in London. But it wasn’t until the early 1970s that a viticultural renaissance put the Peninsula on the world wine map for its flagship cool climate varieties, which love the region’s maritime climate and abundance of sunshine. Today more than 50 wineries do them justice along with aromatic Pinot Gris, spicy Shiraz and elegant Sparklings.

And in the easy years, that's what happens - everyone makes good wine and everyone's picking around the same time. But it's the difficult years – and in the Valley here, we still get three or four difficult years in every ten – they're the years where you make the statement on your skills and your expertise.

    There’s nothing more special than opening a bottle of wine that you’ve cellared for years at just the right moment. But which wines do you cellar? And for how long? It’s as much art as science. And in the end, it’s the challenge that makes it so rewarding.
