Nestled in the hills of Main Ridge on the Mornington Peninsula, our vineyards look over a small valley towards the morning sun. Our mature vines are dry-grown on red volcanic soils, annually producing small parcels of intensely flavoured fruit. Hand-planted by Mario Toniolo at the age of seventy; he could not have envisioned the full course of his new hobby. Now aged eighty-seven Mario can still be found daily, working upon his once abandoned apple orchard, orchestrating his newest project. We take great pleasure in working our wonderful vineyards and cellars where our wines are created, bottled and aged until release. We invite you to enjoy our wines in the beautiful setting in which they were created.
Morning Sun Vineyard offers acres of vineyard and olive groves, beautiful accommodation, an a la carte restaurant, art gallery and cellar door. It is a beautiful place to get in touch with all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer all in the one place....
