Win a case of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir from Visit Victoria

Many know Victoria, Australia’s smallest mainland state, as the home of Melbourne — the country’s capital of cool with a world-class dining scene and a range of artistic, musical and sporting spectacles. What some may not know is that the state punches well above its weight in terms of wine, too, and is home to the most boutique wineries in the country, with more than 600 cellars. Many can be found within a two-hour drive of the city, making it the perfect location for a wine road trip.

Ranging from cool-spiced Shiraz in Victoria’s highlands to maritime-influenced Pinot Noirs from the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria’s cellars offer more than a typical stand-up tasting experience, with many pairing art, food and outdoor activities to create a truly memorable experience. A visit to a boutique winery here often means a brush with the winemaker or a chat with a member of the family who established the business.

Beloved for its pristine beaches and gloriously green hinterland just an hour's drive from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is the largest wine producer on the so-called ‘Pinot Coast’, home to more than 50 boutique cellar doors and renowned for its Pinot Noir. Visitors can combine wine tasting with farm-to-table cuisine at celebrated restaurants such as Laura, Ten Minutes By Tractor, Port Phillip Estate, Montalto and Paringa Estate, or even tour the heart of the region's wine country on horseback. The Pinot Coast wine trail hugs 750km of Australia’s southern coast and effectively wraps around Melbourne. It consists of three regions: Geelong, the Mornington Peninsula and Gippsland. The Pinot Coast offers a diverse array of maritime and aquatic experiences, in addition to its wine and food. There is also the opportunity to surf at beaches along the coast, from the iconic Torquay and Bells Beach in the west near Geelong to Cape Conran in East Gippsland.

Visit Victoria is offering one lucky Spectator Club member the chance to win a case (six bottles) of Stonier Pinot Noir, sourced from the Mornington Peninsula. Stonier is one of Australia’s leading producers of premium Pinot Noir crafted from a selection of the region’s oldest vines, each one contributing nuances from within the different sub-regions of the peninsula. With a fruit spectrum of dark cherry and brooding raspberry, the recipient will be transported to this coastal wonderland from the first sip.
