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.

Déjà vu Dining
6:30 PM     Sat, 17/03/2018
Venue: Crittenden Estate

In 1993 during the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival’s first year of celebrations, Romain Bapst  (now of Lutece, Brisbane) was head chef at the iconic “Mietta’s” in Melbourne. A successful Winemaker Dinner was held featuring the exquisite French fare that Mietta’s was so well known for, matched to Garry Crittenden’s wines. It was, of course, a sell out and the beginning of an era of successful winemaker dinners that we still enjoy today.

Join Garry and son Rollo along with Romain as together they replicate this exact dinner at Crittenden Estate. Same menu, same chef, same winemakers. Same incredible experience. This event is a part of the iconic Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Tickets are $140 and seats are very limited. Click here to book.
