Pristine beaches and gloriously green hinterland – this much-loved holiday favourite is just an hour's drive from Melbourne, and home to more than 50 boutique cellar doors and the region's renowned pinot noir.
Meet the peninsula vintners, who'll tell you about the famed pinot noir and celebrated chardonnay, and let you in on the secrets of the newer regional varietals, including pinot grigio, pinot gris and shiraz.
Taste different styles on a tour around this compact and diverse region. Climate, topography, land and soil structure create distinct micro-climates around the hinterland villages of Red Hill, Main Ridge and Moorooduc, and Merricks, Balnarring and Dromana on the coast.
Follow up an afternoon of wine tasting with a meal to remember at one of the region's celebrated restaurants, such as Ten Minutes By Tractor, Port Phillip Estate, Montalto or Paringa Estate.
Try something a little different. Ride through the heart of the region's wine country on a horseback tour, visiting wineries and farms along the way for tastings.
Cruise down the peninsula in June over the Queen's Birthday break to join in the fun of the Winter Wine Weekend. Pop into local cellar doors in and around Red Hill and taste more than 200 premium wines from some 50 wineries.
