OUR STORY ‘Sherwood’ became home to our family in 1995; a magical place to raise a young family (Sally, Laura and Matthew). Before long we realised our scenic, rolling slopes had the potential to grow premium wine grapes. This ideal Mornington Peninsula site has a north east aspect on deep, fertile soil with a microclimate well suited to producing high quality fruit. The first plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were in 1996 followed by the second plantings of more Pinot Noir , Pinot Gris and Sangiovese in 1999. The vines on our beautiful property are cared for meticulously and that, together with carefully chosen grape varieties and a spectacular site enable us to consistently produce premium wine grapes which have been keenly sought after by respected local winemakers from Tucks Ridge, T’Gallant, Quealy wines, Balnarring Vineyard and Stonier. It is with much excitement that we are now producing small parcels of premium quality, hand picked, Panton single vineyard wines which are now available to purchase online, directly from our cellar door or by other arrangements. FOOD We offer a delicious tasting plate of local and homegrown produce for you to enjoy with our wines while you relax at our Cellar Door overlooking the vineyard. We look forward to sharing our wine with you.
Great wine & food in a relaxed, intimate setting
If you haven't yet visited Panton Vineyard at 11 Shoreham Road, Shoreham you're really missing out. Their Cellar Door is located on a beautiful property in a relaxed, intimate setting overlooking their vineyard. Wines are of a very high standard with serious fragrance and great texture. Combine all of this with their friendly, welcoming host (and owner) Karen and you're in for one of the most pleasant cellar door experiences on the Mornington Peninsula.
I can highly recommend spending a couple of hours sitting out on the deck under a Japanese Maple overlooking the vineyard while eating one of their delicious tasting plates of fresh seasonal produce from across the Mornington Peninsula, with wine in hand of course.
