Port Phillip Estate is situated at Red Hill in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula wine region 80km south of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Surrounded by mounds of native grasses and indigenous spotted gums, the new Port Phillip Estate winery, designed by Wood Marsh Architecture, emerges from the landscape as a dramatic curved sculpture made of rammed-earth. Inside, a large cellar door and tasting room, and a light-filled restaurant open out on to an expansive outdoor deck. Underneath, state-of-the-art winemaking facilities – a barrel room, bottling line, wine processing plant, cellaring and offices – share space with six luxury accommodation suites, complete with private decks. Views across the vines to the sea are panoramic.

The Port Phillip Estate winery is situated at Red Hill in the heart of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula wine region 80km south of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and owned by the Gjergja family.

Winemaking is overseen by Sandro Mosele.

Dining Room
Chef, Simon West has spent much of kitchen lif cooking for boutique winemakers. Paringa Estate and Montalto on the Mornington Peninsula, and Meadowbank Estate in Cambridge, near Hobart. And now here at Port Phillip Estate – a light-filled, architect-designed, restaurant and cellar door, with an expansive timber-slated outdoor terrace that takes in panoramic views across the vines to Westernport Bay and Bass Strait.

West's food has a contemporary edge with a European sensibility, celebrating cool-climate seasonal produce at its best. Think crayfish tartine with white asparagus; cured venison, sweet baby beets and pinot jelly; or rolled saddle of rabbit with black pudding farce, carrot purée and zingy cider cream.

The Port Phillip Estate dining room is open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday and for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.
