Winemakers from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, are heading to the UK this autumn to promotion the region, its wines and its personalities.

The group of nine wineries includes Crittenden Estate, Kooyong, Moorooduc Estate, Ocean Eight, Paringa Estate, Polperro, Port Phillip Estate, Stonier, Ten Minutes by Tractor and Yabby Lake Vineyard. The group first came to the UK to promote the region in 2016 and due to the success of their visit they are returning with new wines and new stories to tell.

The main event will take place on September 6 at Australia House in London, with a focus on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in the form of a masterclass hosted by Australian expert, Matthew Jukes, followed by a free-pour tasting in the afternoon, where all the wineries will be showcasing a selection of wine.

The wineries will be engaging further with trade and consumers in events across the southeast, including Vinoteca, 67 Pall Mall, The Wine Society and The Harrow at Little Bedwyn.

Matthew Jukes said: “It is very exciting to be welcoming back the Mornington Peninsula winemakes to the UK as this is one of the elite wine regions in the world and the wines on tasting will further underline the incredible standard of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir produced in this idyllic peninsula.”
