Mornington Peninsula winemakers return to the UK for second tour

Published:  05 July, 2018

A group of winemakers from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula is heading to the UK to promote the region.

The tour, which follows similar activity in 2016, will see nine winemakers return to the UK for a series of tastings and masterclasses to promoting the region, its wines and its personalities.

Comprising nine wineries the group will focus on promoting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with the main event of the tour taking place 6 September, including a masterclass by Australian expert Matthew Jukes, which will be followed by a free-pour trade tasting.

The tour, which will include events across the south east including Vinoteca, 67 Pall Mall, The Wine Society and The Harrow at Little Bedwyn, would further underline the “incredible standard” of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir produced in the peninsula, said Jukes, adding it was one of the elite wine regions in the world.

Less than an hour’s drive south-east of Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula enjoys a cool, maritime climate, with smaller, family-run wineries dominating the wine scene in the small region.

The wineries on tour include: Crittenden Estate, Kooyong, Moorooduc Estate, Ocean Eight, Paringa Estate, Polperro, Port Phillip Estate, Stonier, Ten Minutes by Tractor and Yabby Lake Vineyard.
