About

The recently opened Crittenden Wine Centre has introduced an exciting new way of experiencing wine on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.

THE WINE CENTRE - OUR VERSION OF THE CELLAR DOOR EXPERIENCE

The Crittenden Wine Centre has introduced an exciting new way of experiencing wine on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Our full range of alternative and traditional wines are available for tasting in a format that is unique, innovative and, we believe, a game changer in the field of wine tourism.

You'll be met at the purpose built cellar door by knowledgeable staff and then guided through carefully designed wine tasting to allow you to gain a full understanding of the wines. Comfortable seating at tables ensures that guests are able to concentrate on the experience yet relax in ambient surroundings with views over the lawn, lake and some of the Peninsula’s oldest vines.

The large range of wines reflects Rollo Crittenden’s passion for traditional varietals as well as his inability to resist the temptation to experiment in the winery with challenging and alternative grapes such as Vermentino from Italy and Tempranillo from Spain. Your wine tasting experience will be informative and comprehensive, but most of all, fun. Like anything to do with wine, this is a new experience best enjoyed with friends and family.

Please book ahead for a groups of six or more.

To enquire or book ahead please call the Wine Centre on 03 5987 3800 or email winecentre@crittendenwines.com.au

P.S. Don’t forget to ask about membership of “The Crittenden Wine Alliance” which brings with it numerous benefits.

Crittenden Estate Peninsula Fumé Blanc

This FUMÉ BLANC style is a beguiling wine that brings a new dimension to Sauvignon in our wine line up. Essentially it seeks to capture a smoky minerality with both texture and length, and in our view succeeds. Due to the use of only 10% new oak...

Favourable weather led to excellent fruit set. A large crop load needed some “thinning” to reduce potential yeild. A mild to warm ripening period made for a perfect harvest with pristine fruit.

Cool weather over flowering resulted in lower than average yields. A warm, dry summer to follow fortunately ensured that our limited production achieved optimum flavour ripeness and will see the 2017 vintage be remembered as one of the best in a...
