Crittenden Estate is an iconic vineyard, winery and wine centre located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, one hour’s drive south of Melbourne. The home vineyard, first planted in 1982, is situated on the lower northern slopes of Red Hill and has ideal conditions for growing traditional cool climate European varieties. Its ideal sandy loam soils, considerable vine age and close proximity Port Philip Bay each contribute immeasurably to the premium wine styles that the Crittenden family have become known for. Crittenden Estate is now known as one of the Mornington Peninsula's iconic wineries and is a must visit on a winery tour agenda.

After growing up on the farm the second generation of Crittendens are now fully immersed in the running of the business. Garry Crittenden’s son Rollo is now Viticulturalist & Winemaker whilst daughter Zoe takes care of the marketing. The third generation, whilst too young to be helping in the vineyard yet, enjoy the pleasure of being surrounded by vines and dirt.

The range of wines on offer at Crittenden, all available for purchase online and at the Crittenden Wine Centre, reflect Garry and Rollo’s innovative winemaking styles. As one of the first producers in the country to embrace styles from Italy and Spain they have developed a reputation for taking an experimental approach towards their wine making. Tradition, however, also plays a large part in the production of their award winning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from an area that is now becoming pre-eminent as one of the country’s most well reputed regions for these two styles.

Crittenden Estate is a centrally located Mornington Peninsula winery in Dromana and is within 15km of the following towns: Red Hill, Main Ridge, Balnarring, Merricks, Point Leo, Shoreham, McCrae and Rosebud.

The Queens Birthday Winter Wine Weekend
Sat, 11/06/2016 - Mon, 13/06/2016
Venue: Red Hill Show Grounds (Saturday only) and Crittenden Estate (all weekend)

The iconic Winter Wine Weekend is one of the oldest and longest running wine festivals held on the Mornington Peninsula. For more than twenty year wineries have been gathering on the Saturday of the Queens Birthday long weekend in June at the Red Hill Showgrounds, enabling visitors to enjoy sampling the wide range of cool climate wines that the Peninsula has on offer.  This is a ticketed event, also serving food from local restaurants, and tickets can be pre purchased here (tickets are also available on the day). On this link you will find further information about the event and what your ticket includes. 

Over the three day long weekend many local wineries open their doors to the public to welcome guests in out of the cold and to give them the full winter wine experience on the Mornington Peninsula. Although the Crittenden Wine Centre is open most days of the year, we treat this weekend as a special one and encourage you to visit and take advantage of some of the long weekend specials we will have available. If you have visited us before and are familiar with our unique tasting format you will find the system to be a little different on this special weekend.
