  • Rated 93pts by James Halliday
Mornington Peninsula’s Oldest Vineyard Est. 1972

Elgee Park, the oldest vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula, was originally the country retreat of Baillieu & Sarah Myer and their children. In 1972 the first vines were planted on the property. Small parcels of grapes, cool nights and warm summers, produce wines of great finesse, depth and balance.
