Eldridge Estate is located 90 minutes south of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula. The area is full of beach and holiday towns, golf courses, horse riding, nature reserves and wineries. The 'Peninsula' has long been a playground for the people of Melbourne, yet Red Hill remains a peaceful rural community.

The Eldridge Estate vineyard is situated on Arthurs Seat Road, between the Red Hill turn-off and Red Hill shops. The entrance to the Estate is past the Showgrounds (site of the famous Red Hill market) and 100 metres East of Andrews Lane. Look for the flag that says they're open.

Eldridge Estate produces hand-crafted single vineyard wines. They have 3 hectares (7 acres) under vines, all with superb views of the valley and hills behind the vineyard and winery. The vineyard has an altitude of 225 metres at a Latitude 38 22' 16" and Longitude 145 1' 11" . So in altitude and climate, the site is similar to Burgundy in France.

The soil is a rich terra rosa volcanic loam on a north facing slope that drops 45 metres from the top, near Arthurs Seat Road, to the spring-fed dam at the bottom. It is protected from harsh winds by natural land forms which result in a long, cool, ripening period.
