Discover the tastes of the Mornington Peninsula wine region with boutique, family owned & award winning, Dromana Estate Winery. With 50 acres under vine, our wines are estate grown and produced. To showcase the varietal diversity of the Peninsula, we have created our Mornington Estate range. The wines are fresh and vibrant with distinctive regional characteristics. Our premium Dromana Estate range highlights the Peninsula’s extended, gradual ripening season that is ideal for producing award winning wines from classic, cool climate varietals. The Tuerong Park range is our limited-edition range, made from selected sections of the vineyard to which the winemaker has paid personal hands-on attention and care.
It is our belief that exceptional wines arise from great grapes and vineyard management with minimal intrusion and interference our wines achieve that sense of time and place, or terroir, to use the French term. By keeping the use of fungicides to the absolute minimum and endeavouring to use organic options when available we produce premium wines that are as sustainable and eco-friendly. We have always believed in using minimal preservatives throughout wine production, including during fermentation and filtering which allows the natural flavour of our wine shine through. While viticulture requires a significant amount of water, all our water we use is treated onsite. The recycled, A-Grade water, now at a drinkable standard, can be reused in the vineyard and throughout wine production. These developments have not only drastically decreased water waste, but protects nearby waterways from possibly toxic, untreated water. We also aim to be a pioneer in renewable energy with sustainable wine and food production and have installed a 99 kWh solar panel system to produce ALL electricity used in the vineyard, wine production, restaurant and other food production.
Our winery has three labels: Dromana Estate Wines, Tuerong Park Wines and Mornington Estate Wines. All our labels are estate grown and are estate made wines representing the highest standards of viticulture, hereby ensuring quality wine goes into every bottle. We believe our wines are an expression of the fruit we have grown here at the estate.
