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.

At Crittenden Family Wine Makers we have a commitment to supporting small independent retailers of our wines; we do not supply to any of the major groups or chains such as Dan Murphy or Vintage Cellars etc.

We particularly value the relationships we have with our Mornington Peninsula clients and for the last seven years have shown this by joining with our friends at La Casa Nostra Deli in Rosebud to jointly host a pre-Christmas tasting, enabling the local community to purchase wines for Christmas and summer drinking at preferential prices. You will, of course, be able to purchase any of the La Casa Nostra goodies at the same time.

Please accept this invitation to join us on Sunday December 6th and enjoy a convivial couple of hours with friends. Philip will as usual be producing a range of comestibles to accompany the wine.

When: Sunday 6th December from 2pm to 4 pm.

Where: La Casa Nostra Deli, 1033 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud.

Who: All are welcome to come along and meet the Crittenden and Tomasello Families.

We hope to see you there.
