Offering premium wines and regional cuisine only an hour from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula also has a long-standing reputation as a seaside playground. Generally speaking, the landscape is open, with gently undulating hills, rolling green pastures and tranquil vineyards. While the vineyard holdings are usually small, significant tracts of land are being given over to viticulture.
Although the wineries are relatively small, Mornington Peninsula's many different sites and mesoclimates produce an exotic array of wines.
