Stumpy Gully Wines – Zantvoort Estate

Stumpy Gully Vineyard remains the pride and joy of the Zantvoort family, who settled in Australia in 1980 and planted their first vines at Mooroduc on the Mornington Peninsula in 1989.




At the Stumpy Gully Winery cellar door you’ll find the winemakers, viticulturists or other members of the Zantvoort family doubling up as cellar door staff.

That’s because, after 25 years, Stumpy Gully Vineyard remains family-owned and run.  Meanwhile, many wineries in the Mornington Peninsula region that started out as family concerns have been sold to larger companies.

Everyone likes to come home from a weekend wine trail with stories. At Stumpy Gully cellar door you can hear plenty: the history, the characters, the happy accidents and the real disasters. And, of course, how the wines are grown and made, based on the family’s own ideas of what makes a wine special.

Stumpy Gully Vineyards’ cellar door is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm, only 50 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.  It’s right at the start of the Mornington Wine trail at Moorooduc, just off the Peninsula Link freeway at the Mornington-Tyabb Road Exit.

Crittenden Estate

Crittenden Estate is an iconic vineyard, winery and wine centre located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, one hour’s drive south of Melbourne.


The home vineyard, first planted in 1982, is situated on the lower northern slopes of Red Hill and has ideal conditions for growing traditional cool climate European varieties. Its ideal sandy loam soils, considerable vine age and close proximity Port Philip Bay each contribute immeasurably to the premium wine styles that the Crittenden family have become known for. Crittenden Estate is now known as one of the Mornington Peninsula’s iconic wineries and is a must visit on a winery tour agenda.

After growing up on the farm the second generation of Crittendens are now fully immersed in the running of the business. Garry Crittenden’s son Rollo is now Viticulturalist & Winemaker whilst daughter Zoe takes care of the marketing. The third generation, whilst too young to be helping in the vineyard yet, enjoy the pleasure of being surrounded by vines and dirt.

The range of wines on offer at Crittenden, all available for purchase online and at the Crittenden Wine Centre, reflect Garry and Rollo’s innovative winemaking styles. As one of the first producers in the country to embrace styles from Italy and Spain they have developed a reputation for taking an experimental approach towards their wine making. Tradition, however, also plays a large part in the production of their award winning Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from an area that is now becoming pre-eminent as one of the country’s most well reputed regions for these two styles.


Crittenden Estate is a centrally located Mornington Peninsula winery in Dromana and is within 15km of the following towns: Red Hill, Main Ridge, Balnarring, Merricks, Point Leo, Shoreham, McCrae and Rosebud.
